Synopsis

  describe-volumes
[--instance-id <value>]
[--stack-id <value>]
[--raid-array-id <value>]
[--volume-ids <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--instance-id (string)

The instance ID. If you use this parameter, DescribeVolumes returns descriptions of the volumes associated with the specified instance.

--stack-id (string)

A stack ID. The action describes the stack's registered Amazon EBS volumes.

--raid-array-id (string)

The RAID array ID. If you use this parameter, DescribeVolumes returns descriptions of the volumes associated with the specified RAID array.

--volume-ids (list)

Am array of volume IDs. If you use this parameter, DescribeVolumes returns descriptions of the specified volumes. Otherwise, it returns a description of every volume.

Syntax:

"string" "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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
