list-instance-profiles-for-role

Description

Lists the instance profiles that have the specified associated IAM role. If there are none, the operation returns an empty list. For more information about instance profiles, go to About Instance Profiles .

You can paginate the results using the MaxItems and Marker parameters.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-instance-profiles-for-role is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: InstanceProfiles

Synopsis

  list-instance-profiles-for-role
--role-name <value>
[--max-items <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--role-name (string)

The name of the role to list instance profiles for.

This parameter allows (through its regex pattern ) a string of characters consisting of upper and lowercase alphanumeric characters with no spaces. You can also include any of the following characters: _+=,.@-

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To list the instance profiles for an IAM role

The following list-instance-profiles-for-role command lists the instance profiles that are associated with the role Test-Role:

aws iam list-instance-profiles-for-role --role-name Test-Role

Output:

"InstanceProfiles": [
    {
        "InstanceProfileId": "AIDGPMS9RO4H3FEXAMPLE",
        "Roles": [
            {
                "AssumeRolePolicyDocument": "<URL-encoded-JSON>",
                "RoleId": "AIDACKCEVSQ6C2EXAMPLE",
                "CreateDate": "2013-06-07T20:42:15Z",
                "RoleName": "Test-Role",
                "Path": "/",
                "Arn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/Test-Role"
            }
        ],
        "CreateDate": "2013-06-07T21:05:24Z",
        "InstanceProfileName": "ExampleInstanceProfile",
        "Path": "/",
        "Arn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:instance-profile/ExampleInstanceProfile"
    }
]

Output

InstanceProfiles -> (list)

A list of instance profiles.

(structure)

Contains information about an instance profile.

This data type is used as a response element in the following operations:

  • CreateInstanceProfile
  • GetInstanceProfile
  • ListInstanceProfiles
  • ListInstanceProfilesForRole

Path -> (string)

The path to the instance profile. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

InstanceProfileName -> (string)

The name identifying the instance profile.

InstanceProfileId -> (string)

The stable and unique string identifying the instance profile. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) specifying the instance profile. For more information about ARNs and how to use them in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

CreateDate -> (timestamp)

The date when the instance profile was created.

Roles -> (list)

The role associated with the instance profile.

(structure)

Contains information about an IAM role. This structure is returned as a response element in several API operations that interact with roles.

Path -> (string)

The path to the role. For more information about paths, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

RoleName -> (string)

The friendly name that identifies the role.

RoleId -> (string)

The stable and unique string identifying the role. For more information about IDs, see IAM Identifiers in the Using IAM guide.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) specifying the role. For more information about ARNs and how to use them in policies, see IAM Identifiers in the IAM User Guide guide.

CreateDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time, in ISO 8601 date-time format , when the role was created.

AssumeRolePolicyDocument -> (string)

The policy that grants an entity permission to assume the role.

Description -> (string)

A description of the role that you provide.

MaxSessionDuration -> (integer)

The maximum session duration (in seconds) for the specified role. Anyone who uses the AWS CLI, or API to assume the role can specify the duration using the optional DurationSeconds API parameter or duration-seconds CLI parameter.

PermissionsBoundary -> (structure)

The ARN of the policy used to set the permissions boundary for the role.

For more information about permissions boundaries, see Permissions Boundaries for IAM Identities in the IAM User Guide .

PermissionsBoundaryType -> (string)

The permissions boundary usage type that indicates what type of IAM resource is used as the permissions boundary for an entity. This data type can only have a value of Policy .

PermissionsBoundaryArn -> (string)

The ARN of the policy used to set the permissions boundary for the user or role.

Tags -> (list)

A list of tags that are attached to the specified role. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM Identities in the IAM User Guide .

(structure)

A structure that represents user-provided metadata that can be associated with a resource such as an IAM user or role. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM Identities in the IAM User Guide .

Key -> (string)

The key name that can be used to look up or retrieve the associated value. For example, Department or Cost Center are common choices.

Value -> (string)

The value associated with this tag. For example, tags with a key name of Department could have values such as Human Resources , Accounting , and Support . Tags with a key name of Cost Center might have values that consist of the number associated with the different cost centers in your company. Typically, many resources have tags with the same key name but with different values.

Note

AWS always interprets the tag Value as a single string. If you need to store an array, you can store comma-separated values in the string. However, you must interpret the value in your code.

IsTruncated -> (boolean)

A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all your results.

Marker -> (string)

When IsTruncated is true , this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.
