[ aws . imagebuilder ]



Gets a component object.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--component-build-version-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--component-build-version-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the component that you want to retrieve. Regex requires "/d+$" suffix.

--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.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To get component details

The following get-component example lists the details of a component by specifying its ARN.

aws imagebuilder get-component \
