[ aws . route53resolver ]



Gets information about a specified resolver endpoint, such as whether it's an inbound or an outbound resolver endpoint, and the current status of the endpoint.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--resolver-endpoint-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--resolver-endpoint-id (string)

The ID of the resolver endpoint that you want to get information about.

--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.


To get information about a Resolver endpoint

The following get-resolver-endpoint example displays details for the outbound specified endpoint. You can use get-resolver-endpoint for both inbound and outbound endpoints by specifying the applicable endpoint ID.

aws route53resolver get-resolver-endpoint \
    --resolver-endpoint-id rslvr-out-d5e5920e37example


    "ResolverEndpoint": {
        "Id": "rslvr-out-d5e5920e37example",
        "CreatorRequestId": "2020-01-01-18:47",
        "Arn": "arn:aws:route53resolver:us-west-2:111122223333:resolver-endpoint/rslvr-out-d5e5920e37example",
        "Name": "my-outbound-endpoint",
        "SecurityGroupIds": [
        "Direction": "OUTBOUND",
        "IpAddressCount": 2,
        "HostVPCId": "vpc-304bexam",
        "Status": "OPERATIONAL",
        "StatusMessage": "This Resolver Endpoint is operational.",
        "CreationTime": "2020-01-01T23:50:50.979Z",
        "ModificationTime": "2020-01-02T23:50:50.979Z"

For more information, see Values That You Specify When You Create or Edit Inbound Endpoints in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.


ResolverEndpoint -> (structure)

Information about the resolver endpoint that you specified in a GetResolverEndpoint request.

Id -> (string)

The ID of the resolver endpoint.

CreatorRequestId -> (string)

A unique string that identifies the request that created the resolver endpoint. The CreatorRequestId allows failed requests to be retried without the risk of executing the operation twice.

Arn -> (string)

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) for the resolver endpoint.

Name -> (string)

The name that you assigned to the resolver endpoint when you submitted a CreateResolverEndpoint request.

SecurityGroupIds -> (list)

The ID of one or more security groups that control access to this VPC. The security group must include one or more inbound resolver rules.


Direction -> (string)

Indicates whether the resolver endpoint allows inbound or outbound DNS queries:

  • INBOUND : allows DNS queries to your VPC from your network or another VPC
  • OUTBOUND : allows DNS queries from your VPC to your network or another VPC

IpAddressCount -> (integer)

The number of IP addresses that the resolver endpoint can use for DNS queries.

HostVPCId -> (string)

The ID of the VPC that you want to create the resolver endpoint in.

Status -> (string)

A code that specifies the current status of the resolver endpoint.

StatusMessage -> (string)

A detailed description of the status of the resolver endpoint.

CreationTime -> (string)

The date and time that the endpoint was created, in Unix time format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

ModificationTime -> (string)

The date and time that the endpoint was last modified, in Unix time format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
