[ aws . identitystore ]



Retrieves the group metadata and attributes from GroupId in an identity store.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--identity-store-id <value>
--group-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--identity-store-id (string)

The globally unique identifier for the identity store, such as d-1234567890 . In this example, d- is a fixed prefix, and 1234567890 is a randomly generated string that contains number and lower case letters. This value is generated at the time that a new identity store is created.

--group-id (string)

The identifier for a group in the identity store.

--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.

--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.


GroupId -> (string)

The identifier for a group in the identity store.

DisplayName -> (string)

Contains the group’s display name value. The length limit is 1,024 characters. This value can consist of letters, accented characters, symbols, numbers, punctuation, tab, new line, carriage return, space, and nonbreaking space in this attribute. The characters <>;:% are excluded. This value is specified at the time that the group is created and stored as an attribute of the group object in the identity store.
