--action-target-arns (list)

A list of custom action target ARNs for the custom action targets to retrieve.



"string" "string" ...

--next-token (string)

The token that is required for pagination. On your first call to the DescribeActionTargets operation, set the value of this parameter to NULL .

For subsequent calls to the operation, to continue listing data, set the value of this parameter to the value returned from the previous response.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of results to return.

--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.
