list-rules

Description

Lists the Recycle Bin retention rules in the Region.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-rules is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Rules

Synopsis

  list-rules
--resource-type <value>
[--resource-tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-type (string)

The resource type retained by the retention rule. Only retention rules that retain the specified resource type are listed. Currently, only Amazon EBS snapshots and EBS-backed AMIs are supported. To list retention rules that retain snapshots, specify EBS_SNAPSHOT . To list retention rules that retain EBS-backed AMIs, specify EC2_IMAGE .

Possible values:

  • EBS_SNAPSHOT
  • EC2_IMAGE

--resource-tags (list)

Information about the resource tags used to identify resources that are retained by the retention rule.

(structure)

Information about the resource tags used to identify resources that are retained by the retention rule.

ResourceTagKey -> (string)

The tag key.

ResourceTagValue -> (string)

The tag value.

Shorthand Syntax:

ResourceTagKey=string,ResourceTagValue=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "ResourceTagKey": "string",
    "ResourceTagValue": "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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Output

Rules -> (list)

Information about the retention rules.

(structure)

Information about a Recycle Bin retention rule.

Identifier -> (string)

The unique ID of the retention rule.

Description -> (string)

The retention rule description.

RetentionPeriod -> (structure)

Information about the retention period for which the retention rule is to retain resources.

RetentionPeriodValue -> (integer)

The period value for which the retention rule is to retain resources. The period is measured using the unit specified for RetentionPeriodUnit .

RetentionPeriodUnit -> (string)

The unit of time in which the retention period is measured. Currently, only DAYS is supported.

NextToken -> (string)

The token to use to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.
