describe-default-cluster-parameters

Description

Returns a list of parameter settings for the specified parameter group family.

For more information about parameters and parameter groups, go to Amazon Redshift Parameter Groups in the Amazon Redshift Cluster Management Guide .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-default-cluster-parameters 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: DefaultClusterParameters.Parameters

Synopsis

  describe-default-cluster-parameters
--parameter-group-family <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--parameter-group-family (string)

The name of the cluster parameter group family.

--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.

--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

Get a Description of Default Cluster Parameters

This example returns a description of the default cluster parameters for the redshift-1.0 family. By default, the output is in JSON format.

Command:

aws redshift describe-default-cluster-parameters --parameter-group-family redshift-1.0

Result:

{
   "DefaultClusterParameters": {
   "ParameterGroupFamily": "redshift-1.0",
   "Parameters": [
      {
         "Description": "Sets the display format for date and time values.",
         "DataType": "string",
         "IsModifiable": true,
         "Source": "engine-default",
         "ParameterValue": "ISO, MDY",
         "ParameterName": "datestyle"
      },
      {
         "Description": "Sets the number of digits displayed for floating-point values",
         "DataType": "integer",
         "IsModifiable": true,
         "AllowedValues": "-15-2",
         "Source": "engine-default",
         "ParameterValue": "0",
         "ParameterName": "extra_float_digits"
      },
      (...remaining output omitted...)
      ]
   }
}

Tip

To see a list of valid parameter group families, use the describe-cluster-parameter-groups command.

Output

DefaultClusterParameters -> (structure)

Describes the default cluster parameters for a parameter group family.

ParameterGroupFamily -> (string)

The name of the cluster parameter group family to which the engine default parameters apply.

Marker -> (string)

A value that indicates the starting point for the next set of response records in a subsequent request. If a value is returned in a response, you can retrieve the next set of records by providing this returned marker value in the Marker parameter and retrying the command. If the Marker field is empty, all response records have been retrieved for the request.

Parameters -> (list)

The list of cluster default parameters.

(structure)

Describes a parameter in a cluster parameter group.

ParameterName -> (string)

The name of the parameter.

ParameterValue -> (string)

The value of the parameter.

Description -> (string)

A description of the parameter.

Source -> (string)

The source of the parameter value, such as "engine-default" or "user".

DataType -> (string)

The data type of the parameter.

AllowedValues -> (string)

The valid range of values for the parameter.

ApplyType -> (string)

Specifies how to apply the WLM configuration parameter. Some properties can be applied dynamically, while other properties require that any associated clusters be rebooted for the configuration changes to be applied. For more information about parameters and parameter groups, go to Amazon Redshift Parameter Groups in the Amazon Redshift Cluster Management Guide .

IsModifiable -> (boolean)

If true , the parameter can be modified. Some parameters have security or operational implications that prevent them from being changed.

MinimumEngineVersion -> (string)

The earliest engine version to which the parameter can apply.
