--sort-by (structure)

Specifies sorting parameters for the list of bots. You can specify that the list be sorted by bot name in ascending or descending order.

attribute -> (string)

The attribute to use to sort the list of bots.

order -> (string)

The order to sort the list. You can choose ascending or descending.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "attribute": "BotName",
  "order": "Ascending"|"Descending"

--filters (list)

Provides the specification of a filter used to limit the bots in the response to only those that match the filter specification. You can only specify one filter and one string to filter on.


Filters the responses returned by the ListBots operation.

name -> (string)

The name of the field to filter the list of bots.

values -> (list)

The value to use for filtering the list of bots.


operator -> (string)

The operator to use for the filter. Specify EQ when the ListBots operation should return only aliases that equal the specified value. Specify CO when the ListBots operation should return aliases that contain the specified value.

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string,operator=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "name": "BotName"|"BotType",
    "values": ["string", ...],
    "operator": "CO"|"EQ"|"NE"

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of bots to return in each page of results. If there are fewer results than the maximum page size, only the actual number of results are returned.

--next-token (string)

If the response from the ListBots operation contains more results than specified in the maxResults parameter, a token is returned in the response.

Use the returned token in the nextToken parameter of a ListBots request to return the next page of results. For a complete set of results, call the ListBots operation until the nextToken returned in the response is null.

--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.
