Gets information about the specified Outpost site.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--site-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--site-id (string)

The ID or the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the site.


In requests, Amazon Web Services Outposts accepts the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or an ID for Outposts and sites throughout the Outposts Query API. To address backwards compatibility, the parameter names OutpostID or SiteID remain in use. Despite the parameter name, you can make the request with an ARN.

--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.
