Options

--job-id (string)

The unique identifier you assigned to this job when it was created.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

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 detailed status for a job

The following describe-job example gets detailed status for the job whose ID is example-job-01.

aws iot describe-job \
    --job-id "example-job-01"

Output:

Output

documentSource -> (string)

An S3 link to the job document.

job -> (structure)

Information about the job.

jobArn -> (string)

An ARN identifying the job with format "arn:aws:iot:region:account:job/jobId".

jobId -> (string)

The unique identifier you assigned to this job when it was created.

targetSelection -> (string)

Specifies whether the job will continue to run (CONTINUOUS), or will be complete after all those things specified as targets have completed the job (SNAPSHOT). If continuous, the job may also be run on a thing when a change is detected in a target. For example, a job will run on a device when the thing representing the device is added to a target group, even after the job was completed by all things originally in the group.

Note

We recommend that you use continuous jobs instead of snapshot jobs for dynamic thing group targets. By using continuous jobs, devices that join the group receive the job execution even after the job has been created.

status -> (string)

The status of the job, one of IN_PROGRESS , CANCELED , DELETION_IN_PROGRESS or COMPLETED .

forceCanceled -> (boolean)

Will be true if the job was canceled with the optional force parameter set to true .

reasonCode -> (string)

If the job was updated, provides the reason code for the update.

comment -> (string)

If the job was updated, describes the reason for the update.

targets -> (list)

A list of IoT things and thing groups to which the job should be sent.

(string)

description -> (string)

A short text description of the job.

presignedUrlConfig -> (structure)

Configuration for pre-signed S3 URLs.

roleArn -> (string)

The ARN of an IAM role that grants grants permission to download files from the S3 bucket where the job data/updates are stored. The role must also grant permission for IoT to download the files.

Warning

For information about addressing the confused deputy problem, see cross-service confused deputy prevention in the Amazon Web Services IoT Core developer guide .

expiresInSec -> (long)

How long (in seconds) pre-signed URLs are valid. Valid values are 60 - 3600, the default value is 3600 seconds. Pre-signed URLs are generated when Jobs receives an MQTT request for the job document.

jobExecutionsRolloutConfig -> (structure)

timeoutConfig -> (structure)

Specifies the amount of time each device has to finish its execution of the job. A timer is started when the job execution status is set to IN_PROGRESS . If the job execution status is not set to another terminal state before the timer expires, it will be automatically set to TIMED_OUT .

inProgressTimeoutInMinutes -> (long)

Specifies the amount of time, in minutes, this device has to finish execution of this job. The timeout interval can be anywhere between 1 minute and 7 days (1 to 10080 minutes). The in progress timer can't be updated and will apply to all job executions for the job. Whenever a job execution remains in the IN_PROGRESS status for longer than this interval, the job execution will fail and switch to the terminal TIMED_OUT status.

namespaceId -> (string)

The namespace used to indicate that a job is a customer-managed job.

When you specify a value for this parameter, Amazon Web Services IoT Core sends jobs notifications to MQTT topics that contain the value in the following format.
