list-jobs

Description

Lists jobs.

Requires permission to access the ListJobs action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-jobs 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: jobs

Options

--status (string)

An optional filter that lets you search for jobs that have the specified status.

Possible values:

  • IN_PROGRESS
  • CANCELED
  • COMPLETED
  • DELETION_IN_PROGRESS

--target-selection (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 thing when the thing 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.

Possible values:

  • CONTINUOUS
  • SNAPSHOT

--thing-group-name (string)

A filter that limits the returned jobs to those for the specified group.

--thing-group-id (string)

A filter that limits the returned jobs to those for the specified group.

--namespace-id (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.

$aws/things/*THING_NAME* /jobs/*JOB_ID* /notify-namespace-*NAMESPACE_ID* /

Note

The namespaceId feature is in public preview.

--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 .

--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 .

--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 list the jobs in your AWS account

The following list-jobs example lists all jobs in your AWS account, sorted by the job status.

aws iot list-jobs

Output:

{
    "jobs": [
        {
            "jobArn": "arn:aws:iot:us-west-2:123456789012:job/example-job-01",
            "jobId": "example-job-01",
            "targetSelection": "SNAPSHOT",
            "status": "IN_PROGRESS",
            "createdAt": 1560787022.733,
            "lastUpdatedAt": 1560787026.294
        }
    ]
}

Output

jobs -> (list)

A list of jobs.

(structure)

The job summary.

jobArn -> (string)

The job ARN.

jobId -> (string)

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

thingGroupId -> (string)

The ID of the thing group.

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 thing when the thing 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 job summary status.

createdAt -> (timestamp)

The time, in seconds since the epoch, when the job was created.

lastUpdatedAt -> (timestamp)

The time, in seconds since the epoch, when the job was last updated.

The time, in seconds since the epoch, when the job completed.

isConcurrent -> (boolean)

Indicates whether a job is concurrent. Will be true when a job is rolling out new job executions or canceling previously created executions, otherwise false.

nextToken -> (string)
