describe-template

Description

Describes a template's metadata.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-template
--aws-account-id <value>
--template-id <value>
[--version-number <value>]
[--alias-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--aws-account-id (string)

The ID of the AWS account that contains the template that you're describing.

--template-id (string)

The ID for the template.

--version-number (long)

(Optional) The number for the version to describe. If a VersionNumber parameter value isn't provided, the latest version of the template is described.

--alias-name (string)

The alias of the template that you want to describe. If you name a specific alias, you describe the version that the alias points to. You can specify the latest version of the template by providing the keyword $LATEST in the AliasName parameter. The keyword $PUBLISHED doesn't apply to templates.

--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.
