The finding property to use to group the query results. Valid values are:

  • classificationDetails.jobId - The unique identifier for the classification job that produced the finding.
  • - The name of the S3 bucket that the finding applies to.
  • severity.description - The severity of the finding, such as High or Medium.
  • type - The type of finding, such as Policy:IAMUser/S3BucketPublic and SensitiveData:S3Object/Personal.

--sort-criteria (structure)

The criteria to use to sort the query results.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

--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.
