describe-db-instance-automated-backups

Description

Displays backups for both current and deleted instances. For example, use this operation to find details about automated backups for previously deleted instances. Current instances with retention periods greater than zero (0) are returned for both the DescribeDBInstanceAutomatedBackups and DescribeDBInstances operations.

All parameters are optional.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-db-instance-automated-backups 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: DBInstanceAutomatedBackups

Synopsis

  describe-db-instance-automated-backups
[--dbi-resource-id <value>]
[--db-instance-identifier <value>]
[--filters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--dbi-resource-id (string)

The resource ID of the DB instance that is the source of the automated backup. This parameter isn't case-sensitive.

--db-instance-identifier (string)

(Optional) The user-supplied instance identifier. If this parameter is specified, it must match the identifier of an existing DB instance. It returns information from the specific DB instance' automated backup. This parameter isn't case-sensitive.

--filters (list)

A filter that specifies which resources to return based on status.

Supported filters are the following:

  • status
    • active - automated backups for current instances
    • retained - automated backups for deleted instances
    • creating - automated backups that are waiting for the first automated snapshot to be available
  • db-instance-id - Accepts DB instance identifiers and Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) for DB instances. The results list includes only information about the DB instance automated backupss identified by these ARNs.
  • dbi-resource-id - Accepts DB instance resource identifiers and DB Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) for DB instances. The results list includes only information about the DB instance resources identified by these ARNs.

Returns all resources by default. The status for each resource is specified in the response.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["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.

Examples

To describe the automated backups for a DB instance

The following describe-db-instance-automated-backups example displays details about the automated backups for the specified DB instance.

aws rds describe-db-instance-automated-backups \
    --db-instance-identifier database-mysql
