[ aws . route53 ]

get-geo-location

Description

Gets information about whether a specified geographic location is supported for Amazon Route 53 geolocation resource record sets.

Route 53 does not perform authorization for this API because it retrieves information that is already available to the public.

Use the following syntax to determine whether a continent is supported for geolocation:

``GET /2013-04-01/geolocation?continentcode=*two-letter abbreviation for a continent* ``

Use the following syntax to determine whether a country is supported for geolocation:

``GET /2013-04-01/geolocation?countrycode=*two-character country code* ``

Use the following syntax to determine whether a subdivision of a country is supported for geolocation:

``GET /2013-04-01/geolocation?countrycode=*two-character country code* subdivisioncode=*subdivision code* ``

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-geo-location
[--continent-code <value>]
[--country-code <value>]
[--subdivision-code <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--continent-code (string)

For geolocation resource record sets, a two-letter abbreviation that identifies a continent. Amazon Route 53 supports the following continent codes:

  • AF : Africa
  • AN : Antarctica
  • AS : Asia
  • EU : Europe
  • OC : Oceania
  • NA : North America
  • SA : South America

--country-code (string)

Amazon Route 53 uses the two-letter country codes that are specified in ISO standard 3166-1 alpha-2 .

--subdivision-code (string)

The code for the subdivision, such as a particular state within the United States. For a list of US state abbreviations, see Appendix B: Two–Letter State and Possession Abbreviations on the United States Postal Service website. For a list of all supported subdivision codes, use the ListGeoLocations API.

--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.
