describe-protection

Description

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-protection
[--protection-id <value>]
[--resource-arn <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--protection-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) for the Protection object that is described. When submitting the DescribeProtection request you must provide either the ResourceArn or the ProtectionID , but not both.

--resource-arn (string)

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) of the AWS resource for the Protection object that is described. When submitting the DescribeProtection request you must provide either the ResourceArn or the ProtectionID , but not both.

--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.
