[ aws . rekognition ]




This operation applies only to Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels.

Lists the entries (images) within a dataset. An entry is a JSON Line that contains the information for a single image, including the image location, assigned labels, and object location bounding boxes. For more information, see Creating a manifest file .

JSON Lines in the response include information about non-terminal errors found in the dataset. Non terminal errors are reported in errors lists within each JSON Line. The same information is reported in the training and testing validation result manifests that Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels creates during model training.

You can filter the response in variety of ways, such as choosing which labels to return and returning JSON Lines created after a specific date.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:ListDatasetEntries action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-dataset-entries 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: DatasetEntries


--dataset-arn <value>
[--contains-labels <value>]
[--labeled | --no-labeled]
[--source-ref-contains <value>]
[--has-errors | --no-has-errors]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--endpoint-url <value>]
[--output <value>]
[--query <value>]
[--profile <value>]
[--region <value>]
[--version <value>]
[--color <value>]
[--ca-bundle <value>]
[--cli-read-timeout <value>]
[--cli-connect-timeout <value>]


--dataset-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the dataset that you want to use.

--contains-labels (list)

Specifies a label filter for the response. The response includes an entry only if one or more of the labels in ContainsLabels exist in the entry.



"string" "string" ...

--labeled | --no-labeled (boolean)

Specify true to get only the JSON Lines where the image is labeled. Specify false to get only the JSON Lines where the image isn't labeled. If you don't specify Labeled , ListDatasetEntries returns JSON Lines for labeled and unlabeled images.

--source-ref-contains (string)

If specified, ListDatasetEntries only returns JSON Lines where the value of SourceRefContains is part of the source-ref field. The source-ref field contains the Amazon S3 location of the image. You can use SouceRefContains for tasks such as getting the JSON Line for a single image, or gettting JSON Lines for all images within a specific folder.

--has-errors | --no-has-errors (boolean)

Specifies an error filter for the response. Specify True to only include entries that have errors.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.


DatasetEntries -> (list)

A list of entries (images) in the dataset.


NextToken -> (string)

If the previous response was incomplete (because there is more results to retrieve), Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels returns a pagination token in the response. You can use this pagination token to retrieve the next set of results.
