list-items

Description

Provides a list of metadata entries about folders and objects in the specified folder.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-items is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Items

Synopsis

  list-items
[--path <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--path (string)

The path in the container from which to retrieve items. Format: folder name/folder name/file name

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Examples

Example 1: To view a list of items (objects and folders) stored in a container

The following list-items example displays a list of items (objects and folders) stored in the specified container.

aws mediastore-data list-items \
    --endpoint https://aaabbbcccdddee.data.mediastore.us-west-2.amazonaws.com

Output:

{
    "Items": [
        {
            "Type": "OBJECT",
            "ContentLength": 3784,
            "Name": "setup.jpg",
            "ETag": "2aa333bbcc8d8d22d777e999c88d4aa9eeeeee4dd89ff7f555555555555da6d3",
            "ContentType": "image/jpeg",
            "LastModified": 1563571859.379
        },
        {
            "Type": "FOLDER",
            "Name": "events"
        }
    ]
}

Example 2: To view a list of items (objects and folders) stored in a folder

The following list-items example displays a list of items (objects and folders) stored in the specified folder.

aws mediastore-data list-items \
    --endpoint https://aaabbbcccdddee.data.mediastore.us-west-2.amazonaws.com \
    --path events/baseball

Output:

{
    "Items": [
        {
            "ETag": "2aa333bbcc8d8d22d777e999c88d4aa9eeeeee4dd89ff7f555555555555da6d3",
            "ContentType": "image/jpeg",
            "Type": "OBJECT",
            "ContentLength": 3860266,
            "LastModified": 1563573031.872,
            "Name": "setup.jpg"
        }
    ]
}

Output

Items -> (list)

The metadata entries for the folders and objects at the requested path.

(structure)

A metadata entry for a folder or object.

Name -> (string)

The name of the item.

Type -> (string)

The item type (folder or object).

ETag -> (string)

The ETag that represents a unique instance of the item.

LastModified -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the item was last modified.

ContentType -> (string)

The content type of the item.

ContentLength -> (long)

The length of the item in bytes.

NextToken -> (string)

The token that can be used in a request to view the next set of results. For example, you submit a ListItems request that matches 2,000 items with MaxResults set at 500. The service returns the first batch of results (up to 500) and a NextToken value that can be used to fetch the next batch of results.
