--filter-criteria (structure)

The criteria to use to filter the results.

JSON Syntax:

  "excludes": [
      "comparator": "EQ"|"GT"|"GTE"|"LT"|"LTE"|"NE"|"CONTAINS",
      "key": "jobType"|"jobStatus"|"createdAt"|"name",
      "values": ["string", ...]
  "includes": [
      "comparator": "EQ"|"GT"|"GTE"|"LT"|"LTE"|"NE"|"CONTAINS",
      "key": "jobType"|"jobStatus"|"createdAt"|"name",

--max-results (integer)

--next-token (string)

--sort-criteria (structure)

  "orderBy": "ASC"|"DESC"

--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.
