[ aws . resource-groups ]

list-groups

Description

Returns a list of existing resource groups in your account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-groups 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: GroupIdentifiers, Groups

Synopsis

  list-groups
[--filters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--filters (list)

Filters, formatted as GroupFilter objects, that you want to apply to a ListGroups operation.

  • resource-type - Filter the results to include only those of the specified resource types. Specify up to five resource types in the format AWS::*ServiceCode* ::*ResourceType* `` . For example, ``AWS::EC2::Instance , or AWS::S3::Bucket .
  • configuration-type - Filter the results to include only those groups that have the specified configuration types attached. The current supported values are:
    • AWS:EC2::CapacityReservationPool

(structure)

A filter collection that you can use to restrict the results from a List operation to only those you want to include.

Name -> (string)

The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

Values -> (list)

One or more filter values. Allowed filter values vary by group filter name, and are case-sensitive.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Name": "resource-type"|"configuration-type",
    "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 list the available resource groups

The following list-groups example displays a list of all of the resource groups.

aws resource-groups list-groups

Output:

{
    "GroupIdentifiers": [
        {
            "GroupName": "tbq-WebServer",
            "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/tbq-WebServer3"
        },
        {
            "GroupName": "cbq-CFNStackQuery",
            "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/cbq-CFNStackQuery"
        }
    ],
    "Groups": [
        {
            "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/tbq-WebServer",
            "Name": "tbq-WebServer"
        },
        {
            "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/cbq-CFNStackQuery",
            "Name": "cbq-CFNStackQuery"
        }
    ]
}

Output

GroupIdentifiers -> (list)

A list of GroupIdentifier objects. Each identifier is an object that contains both the Name and the GroupArn .

(structure)

The unique identifiers for a resource group.

GroupName -> (string)

The name of the resource group.

GroupArn -> (string)

The ARN of the resource group.

Groups -> (list)

This output element is deprecated and shouldn't be used. Refer to GroupIdentifiers instead.

(structure)

A resource group that contains AWS resources. You can assign resources to the group by associating either of the following elements with the group:

  • ResourceQuery - Use a resource query to specify a set of tag keys and values. All resources in the same AWS Region and AWS account that have those keys with the same values are included in the group. You can add a resource query when you create the group.
  • GroupConfiguration - Use a service configuration to associate the group with an AWS service. The configuration specifies which resource types can be included in the group.

GroupArn -> (string)

The ARN of the resource group.

Name -> (string)

The name of the resource group.

Description -> (string)

The description of the resource group.

NextToken -> (string)

If present, indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null .
