[ aws . iotevents-data ]



Lists detectors (the instances of a detector model).

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--detector-model-name <value>
[--state-name <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--detector-model-name (string)

The name of the detector model whose detectors (instances) are listed.

--state-name (string)

A filter that limits results to those detectors (instances) in the given state.

--next-token (string)

The token for the next set of results.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return at one time.

--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 get a list of detectors for a detector model

The following list-detectors example lists detectors (the instances of a detector model).

aws iotevents-data list-detectors \
    --detector-model-name motorDetectorModel


    "detectorSummaries": [
            "lastUpdateTime": 1558129925.2,
            "creationTime": 1552073155.527,
            "state": {
                "stateName": "Normal"
            "keyValue": "Fulton-A32",
            "detectorModelName": "motorDetectorModel",
            "detectorModelVersion": "1"
