[ aws . opsworkscm ]

A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when no recent association or disassociation request with the specified token is found, or when the server does not exist. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--node-association-status-token <value>
--server-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--node-association-status-token (string)

The token returned in either the AssociateNodeResponse or the DisassociateNodeResponse.

--server-name (string)

The name of the server from which to disassociate the node.

--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.


To describe node association status

The following describe-node-association-status command returns the status of a request to associate a node with a Chef Automate server named automate-06.:

aws opsworks-cm describe-node-association-status --server-name "automate-06" --node-association-status-token "AflJKl+/GoKLZJBdDQEx0O65CDi57blQe9nKM8joSok0pQ9xr8DqApBN9/1O6sLdSvlfDEKkEx+eoCHvjoWHaOs="

The output for each account attribute entry returned by the command resembles the following. Output:

 "NodeAssociationStatus": "IN_PROGRESS"
