list-permissions

Description

Returns a list of the principal permissions on the resource, filtered by the permissions of the caller. For example, if you are granted an ALTER permission, you are able to see only the principal permissions for ALTER.

This operation returns only those permissions that have been explicitly granted.

For information about permissions, see Security and Access Control to Metadata and Data .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  list-permissions
[--catalog-id <value>]
[--principal <value>]
[--resource-type <value>]
[--resource <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--catalog-id (string)

The identifier for the Data Catalog. By default, the account ID. The Data Catalog is the persistent metadata store. It contains database definitions, table definitions, and other control information to manage your AWS Lake Formation environment.

--principal (structure)

Specifies a principal to filter the permissions returned.

Shorthand Syntax:

DataLakePrincipalIdentifier=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "DataLakePrincipalIdentifier": "string"
}

--resource-type (string)

Specifies a resource type to filter the permissions returned.

Possible values:

  • CATALOG
  • DATABASE
  • TABLE
  • DATA_LOCATION

--resource (structure)

A resource where you will get a list of the principal permissions.

This operation does not support getting privileges on a table with columns. Instead, call this operation on the table, and the operation returns the table and the table w columns.

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Catalog": {

  },
  "Database": {
    "Name": "string"
  },
  "Table": {
    "DatabaseName": "string",
    "Name": "string"
  },
  "TableWithColumns": {
    "DatabaseName": "string",
    "Name": "string",
    "ColumnNames": ["string", ...],
    "ColumnWildcard": {
      "ExcludedColumnNames": ["string", ...]
    }
  },
  "DataLocation": {
    "ResourceArn": "string"
  }
}

--next-token (string)

A continuation token, if this is not the first call to retrieve this list.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return.

--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.
