list-protections

Description

Lists all Protection objects for the account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-protections is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Protections

Synopsis

  list-protections
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Examples

To retrieve protection summaries from AWS Shield Advanced

The following list-protections example retrieves summaries of the protections that are enabled for the account.

aws shield list-protections

Output:

{
    "Protections": [
        {
            "Id": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111",
            "Name": "Protection for CloudFront distribution",
            "ResourceArn": "arn:aws:cloudfront::123456789012:distribution/E198WC25FXOWY8"
        }
    ]
}

For more information, see Specify Your Resources to Protect in the AWS Shield Advanced Developer Guide.

Output

Protections -> (list)

The array of enabled Protection objects.

(structure)

An object that represents a resource that is under DDoS protection.

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the protection.

Name -> (string)

The friendly name of the protection. For example, My CloudFront distributions .

ResourceArn -> (string)

The ARN (Amazon Resource Name) of the AWS resource that is protected.

HealthCheckIds -> (list)

The unique identifier (ID) for the Route 53 health check that's associated with the protection.

(string)

NextToken -> (string)

If you specify a value for MaxResults and you have more Protections than the value of MaxResults, AWS Shield Advanced returns a NextToken value in the response that allows you to list another group of Protections. For the second and subsequent ListProtections requests, specify the value of NextToken from the previous response to get information about another batch of Protections.

AWS WAF might return the list of Protection objects in batches smaller than the number specified by MaxResults. If there are more Protection objects to return, AWS WAF will always also return a NextToken .
