Get the state for a routing control. A routing control is a simple on/off switch that you can use to route traffic to cells. When a routing control state is On, traffic flows to a cell. When the state is Off, traffic does not flow.

Before you can create a routing control, you must first create a cluster, and then host the control in a control panel on the cluster. For more information, see Create routing control structures in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide. You access one of the endpoints for the cluster to get or update the routing control state to redirect traffic for your application.

You must specify Regional endpoints when you work with API cluster operations to get or update routing control states in Route 53 ARC.

To see a code example for getting a routing control state, including accessing Regional cluster endpoints in sequence, see API examples in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide.

Learn more about working with routing controls in the following topics in the Amazon Route 53 Application Recovery Controller Developer Guide:

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--routing-control-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--routing-control-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the routing control that you want to get the state for.

--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.

--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.


RoutingControlArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the response.

RoutingControlState -> (string)

The state of the routing control.

RoutingControlName -> (string)

The routing control name.
