[ aws . redshift ]



Returns a list of snapshot schedules.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-snapshot-schedules 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: SnapshotSchedules


[--cluster-identifier <value>]
[--schedule-identifier <value>]
[--tag-keys <value>]
[--tag-values <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--cluster-identifier (string)

The unique identifier for the cluster whose snapshot schedules you want to view.

--schedule-identifier (string)

A unique identifier for a snapshot schedule.

--tag-keys (list)

The key value for a snapshot schedule tag.



"string" "string" ...

--tag-values (list)

The value corresponding to the key of the snapshot schedule tag.



"string" "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.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To describe snapshot schedules

The following describe-snapshot-schedules example displays details for the specified cluster snapshot schedule.

aws redshift describe-snapshot-schedules \
    --cluster-identifier mycluster \
    --schedule-identifier mysnapshotschedule

SnapshotSchedules -> (list)

A list of SnapshotSchedules.


Describes a snapshot schedule. You can set a regular interval for creating snapshots of a cluster. You can also schedule snapshots for specific dates.

ScheduleDefinitions -> (list)

A list of ScheduleDefinitions.


ScheduleIdentifier -> (string)

A unique identifier for the schedule.

ScheduleDescription -> (string)

The description of the schedule.

Tags -> (list)

An optional set of tags describing the schedule.


A tag consisting of a name/value pair for a resource.

Key -> (string)

The key, or name, for the resource tag.

Value -> (string)

The value for the resource tag.

NextInvocations -> (list)


AssociatedClusterCount -> (integer)

The number of clusters associated with the schedule.

AssociatedClusters -> (list)

A list of clusters associated with the schedule. A maximum of 100 clusters is returned.


ClusterIdentifier -> (string)

ScheduleAssociationState -> (string)

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.
