Options

--iam-user-arn (string)

The user's IAM ARN. This can also be a federated user's ARN. For more information about IAM ARNs, see Using Identifiers .

--stack-id (string)

The stack ID.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To obtain a user's per-stack AWS OpsWorks permission level

The following example shows how to to obtain an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user's permission level on a specified stack.

aws opsworks --region us-east-1 describe-permissions --iam-user-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/cli-user-test --stack-id d72553d4-8727-448c-9b00-f024f0ba1b06

Output:

{
  "Permissions": [
    {
      "StackId": "d72553d4-8727-448c-9b00-f024f0ba1b06",
      "IamUserArn": "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/cli-user-test",
      "Level": "manage",
      "AllowSudo": true,
      "AllowSsh": true
    }
  ]
}

More Information

For more information, see Granting Per-Stack Permissions Levels in the AWS OpsWorks User Guide.

Output

Permissions -> (list)

An array of Permission objects that describe the stack permissions.

  • If the request object contains only a stack ID, the array contains a Permission object with permissions for each of the stack IAM ARNs.
  • If the request object contains only an IAM ARN, the array contains a Permission object with permissions for each of the user's stack IDs.
  • If the request contains a stack ID and an IAM ARN, the array contains a single Permission object with permissions for the specified stack and IAM ARN.

(structure)

Describes stack or user permissions.

StackId -> (string)

A stack ID.

IamUserArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role. For more information about IAM ARNs, see Using Identifiers .

AllowSsh -> (boolean)

Whether the user can use SSH.

AllowSudo -> (boolean)

Whether the user can use sudo .

Level -> (string)

The user's permission level, which must be the following:

  • deny
  • show
  • deploy
  • manage
  • iam_only

For more information on the permissions associated with these levels, see Managing User Permissions
