AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . managedblockchain ]



Returns detailed information about a network.

Applies to Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--network-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--network-id (string)

The unique identifier of the network to get information about.

--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.


Network -> (structure)

An object containing network configuration parameters.

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier of the network.

Name -> (string)

The name of the network.

Description -> (string)

Attributes of the blockchain framework for the network.

Framework -> (string)

The blockchain framework that the network uses.

FrameworkVersion -> (string)

The version of the blockchain framework that the network uses.

FrameworkAttributes -> (structure)

Attributes of the blockchain framework that the network uses.

Fabric -> (structure)

Attributes of Hyperledger Fabric for a Managed Blockchain network that uses Hyperledger Fabric.

OrderingServiceEndpoint -> (string)

The endpoint of the ordering service for the network.

Edition -> (string)

The edition of Amazon Managed Blockchain that Hyperledger Fabric uses. For more information, see Amazon Managed Blockchain Pricing .

Ethereum -> (structure)

Attributes of an Ethereum network for Managed Blockchain resources participating in an Ethereum network.

ChainId -> (string)

The Ethereum CHAIN_ID associated with the Ethereum network. Chain IDs are as follows:

  • mainnet = 1
  • rinkeby = 4
  • ropsten = 3

VpcEndpointServiceName -> (string)

The VPC endpoint service name of the VPC endpoint service of the network. Members use the VPC endpoint service name to create a VPC endpoint to access network resources.

VotingPolicy -> (structure)

The voting rules for the network to decide if a proposal is accepted.

ApprovalThresholdPolicy -> (structure)

Defines the rules for the network for voting on proposals, such as the percentage of YES votes required for the proposal to be approved and the duration of the proposal. The policy applies to all proposals and is specified when the network is created.

ThresholdPercentage -> (integer)

The percentage of votes among all members that must be YES for a proposal to be approved. For example, a ThresholdPercentage value of 50 indicates 50%. The ThresholdComparator determines the precise comparison. If a ThresholdPercentage value of 50 is specified on a network with 10 members, along with a ThresholdComparator value of GREATER_THAN , this indicates that 6 YES votes are required for the proposal to be approved.

ProposalDurationInHours -> (integer)

The duration from the time that a proposal is created until it expires. If members cast neither the required number of YES votes to approve the proposal nor the number of NO votes required to reject it before the duration expires, the proposal is EXPIRED and ProposalActions are not carried out.

ThresholdComparator -> (string)

Determines whether the vote percentage must be greater than the ThresholdPercentage or must be greater than or equal to the ThreholdPercentage to be approved.

Status -> (string)

The current status of the network.

CreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the network was created.
