[ aws . iotsitewise ]



Retrieves information about a gateway capability configuration. Each gateway capability defines data sources for a gateway. A capability configuration can contain multiple data source configurations. If you define OPC-UA sources for a gateway in the IoT SiteWise console, all of your OPC-UA sources are stored in one capability configuration. To list all capability configurations for a gateway, use DescribeGateway .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--gateway-id <value>
--capability-namespace <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--gateway-id (string)

The ID of the gateway that defines the capability configuration.

--capability-namespace (string)

The namespace of the capability configuration. For example, if you configure OPC-UA sources from the IoT SiteWise console, your OPC-UA capability configuration has the namespace iotsitewise:opcuacollector:version , where version is a number such as 1 .

--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 describe a gateway capability

The following describe-gateway-capability-configuration example describes an OPC-UA source capability.

aws iotsitewise describe-gateway-capability-configuration \
    --gateway-id a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-1a1a1EXAMPLE \
    --capability-namespace "iotsitewise:opcuacollector:1"


    "gatewayId": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-1a1a1EXAMPLE",
    "capabilityNamespace": "iotsitewise:opcuacollector:1",
    "capabilityConfiguration": "{\"sources\":[{\"name\":\"Wind Farm #1\",\"endpoint\":{\"certificateTrust\":{\"type\":\"TrustAny\"},\"endpointUri\":\"opc.tcp://\",\"securityPolicy\":\"BASIC256\",\"messageSecurityMode\":\"SIGN_AND_ENCRYPT\",\"identityProvider\":{\"type\":\"Username\",\"usernameSecretArn\":\"arn:aws:secretsmanager:us-east-1:123456789012:secret:greengrass-factory1-auth-3QNDmM\"},\"nodeFilterRules\":[]},\"measurementDataStreamPrefix\":\"\"}]}",
    "capabilitySyncStatus": "IN_SYNC"

For more information, see Configuring data sources in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide.


gatewayId -> (string)

The ID of the gateway that defines the capability configuration.

capabilityNamespace -> (string)

The namespace of the gateway capability.

capabilityConfiguration -> (string)

The JSON document that defines the gateway capability's configuration. For more information, see Configuring data sources (CLI) in the IoT SiteWise User Guide .

capabilitySyncStatus -> (string)

The synchronization status of the capability configuration. The sync status can be one of the following:

  • IN_SYNC – The gateway is running the capability configuration.
  • OUT_OF_SYNC – The gateway hasn't received the capability configuration.
  • SYNC_FAILED – The gateway rejected the capability configuration.
