[ aws . marketplace-catalog ]



Returns metadata and content for multiple entities. This is the Batch version of the DescribeEntity API and uses the same IAM permission action as DescribeEntity API.

See also: AWS API Documentation

batch-describe-entities uses document type values. Document types follow the JSON data model where valid values are: strings, numbers, booleans, null, arrays, and objects. For command input, options and nested parameters that are labeled with the type document must be provided as JSON. Shorthand syntax does not support document types.

--entity-request-list (list)

List of entity IDs and the catalogs the entities are present in.


An object that contains entity ID and the catalog in which the entity is present.

Catalog -> (string)

The name of the catalog the entity is present in. The only value at this time is AWSMarketplace .

EntityId -> (string)

The ID of the entity.

Shorthand Syntax:

Catalog=string,EntityId=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "EntityId": "string"

--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.
