describe-asset-property

Description

Retrieves information about an asset property.

Note

When you call this operation for an attribute property, this response includes the default attribute value that you define in the asset model. If you update the default value in the model, this operation's response includes the new default value.

This operation doesn't return the value of the asset property. To get the value of an asset property, use GetAssetPropertyValue .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-asset-property
--asset-id <value>
--property-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--asset-id (string)

The ID of the asset.

--property-id (string)

The ID of the asset property.

--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.

Examples

To describe an asset property

The following describe-asset-property example describes a wind farm asset's total generated power property.

For example, you might have separately grouped assets that come from the same asset model. For more information, see Asset hierarchies in the IoT SiteWise User Guide .

window -> (structure)

The window (time interval) over which IoT SiteWise computes the metric's aggregation expression. IoT SiteWise computes one data point per window .

IoT SiteWise computes the 1w interval the end of Sunday at midnight each week (UTC), the 1d interval at the end of each day at midnight (UTC), the 1h interval at the end of each hour, and so on.

When IoT SiteWise aggregates data points for metric computations, the start of each interval is exclusive and the end of each interval is inclusive. IoT SiteWise places the computed data point at the end of the interval.

offset -> (string)
