[ aws . ram ]



Lists the resources in a resource share that is shared with you but for which the invitation is still PENDING . That means that you haven't accepted or rejected the invitation and the invitation hasn't expired.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resource-share-invitation-arn <value>
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--resource-region-scope <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resource-share-invitation-arn (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the invitation. You can use GetResourceShareInvitations to find the ARN of the invitation.

--next-token (string)

Specifies that you want to receive the next page of results. Valid only if you received a NextToken response in the previous request. If you did, it indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value provided by the previous call's NextToken response to request the next page of results.

--max-results (integer)

Specifies the total number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value that is specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the number you specify, the NextToken response element is returned with a value (not null). Include the specified value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. Note that the service might return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

--resource-region-scope (string)

Specifies that you want the results to include only resources that have the specified scope.

  • ALL – the results include both global and regional resources or resource types.
  • GLOBAL – the results include only global resources or resource types.
  • REGIONAL – the results include only regional resources or resource types.

The default value is ALL .

Possible values:

  • ALL

--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 list the resources that are available in a pending resource share

The following list-pending-invitation-resources example lists all of the resources that are in the resource share associated with the specified invitation.

resources -> (list)

An array of objects that contain the information about the resources included the specified resource share.


Describes a resource associated with a resource share in RAM.

arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the resource.

type -> (string)

The resource type. This takes the form of: service-code :resource-code

resourceShareArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the resource share this resource is associated with.

resourceGroupArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resoure Name (ARN) of the resource group. This value is available only if the resource is part of a resource group.

status -> (string)

The current status of the resource.

statusMessage -> (string)

A message about the status of the resource.

creationTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the resource was associated with the resource share.

lastUpdatedTime -> (timestamp)

The date an time when the association was last updated.

resourceRegionScope -> (string)

Specifies the scope of visibility of this resource:

  • REGIONAL – The resource can be accessed only by using requests that target the Amazon Web Services Region in which the resource exists.
  • GLOBAL – The resource can be accessed from any Amazon Web Services Region.

nextToken -> (string)

If present, this value indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null . This indicates that this is the last page of results.
