describe-automation-executions

Description

Provides details about all active and terminated Automation executions.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-automation-executions 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: AutomationExecutionMetadataList

Synopsis

  describe-automation-executions
[--filters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--filters (list)

Filters used to limit the scope of executions that are requested.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "DocumentNamePrefix"|"ExecutionStatus"|"ExecutionId"|"ParentExecutionId"|"CurrentAction"|"StartTimeBefore"|"StartTimeAfter"|"AutomationType",
    "Values": ["string", ...]
  }
  ...
]

--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 get details about all active and terminated Automation executions

This example displays the details of all Automation Execution.

Command:

aws ssm describe-automation-executions

Output:

{
  "AutomationExecutionMetadataList": [
      {
          "AutomationExecutionStatus": "Failed",
          "Outputs": {
              "createImage.ImageId": [
                  "No output available yet because the step is not successfully executed"
              ]
          },
          "DocumentName": "AWS-UpdateLinuxAmi",
          "AutomationExecutionId": "4105a4fc-f944-11e6-9d32-8fb2db27a909",
          "ExecutionEndTime": 1487798228.456,
          "DocumentVersion": "1",
          "ExecutionStartTime": 1487798222.746,
          "ExecutedBy": "admin"
      }
  ]
}

To get details of a specific Automation execution

This example shows the details about a specific Automation Execution.

Command:

aws ssm describe-automation-executions --filter "Key=ExecutionId,Values=4105a4fc-f944-11e6-9d32-8fb2db27a909"

Output

The time the execution started.

ExecutionEndTime -> (timestamp)

The time the execution finished. This is not populated if the execution is still in progress.

ExecutedBy -> (string)

The IAM role ARN of the user who ran the Automation.

LogFile -> (string)

An Amazon S3 bucket where execution information is stored.

Outputs -> (map)

The list of execution outputs as defined in the Automation document.

(structure)

An array of search criteria that targets instances using a Key,Value combination that you specify.

Supported formats include the following.

  • ``Key=InstanceIds,Values=*instance-id-1* ,*instance-id-2* ,*instance-id-3* ``
  • ``Key=tag:my-tag-key ,Values=*my-tag-value-1* ,*my-tag-value-2* ``
  • ``Key=tag-key,Values=*my-tag-key-1* ,*my-tag-key-2* ``
  • (Maintenance window targets only) ``Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=*resource-group-name* ``
  • (Maintenance window targets only) ``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*resource-type-1* ,*resource-type-2* ``

For example:

  • Key=InstanceIds,Values=i-02573cafcfEXAMPLE,i-0471e04240EXAMPLE,i-07782c72faEXAMPLE
  • Key=tag:CostCenter,Values=CostCenter1,CostCenter2,CostCenter3
  • Key=tag-key,Values=Name,Instance-Type,CostCenter
  • (Maintenance window targets only) Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=ProductionResourceGroup This example demonstrates how to target all resources in the resource group ProductionResourceGroup in your maintenance window.
  • (Maintenance window targets only) ``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*AWS::EC2::INSTANCE* ,*AWS::EC2::VPC* `` This example demonstrates how to target only Amazon EC2 instances and VPCs in your maintenance window.
  • (State Manager association targets only) Key=InstanceIds,Values=* This example demonstrates how to target all managed instances in the AWS Region where the association was created.

For information about how to send commands that target instances using Key,Value parameters, see Using Targets and Rate Controls to Send Commands to a Fleet in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide .

Key -> (string)

User-defined criteria for sending commands that target instances that meet the criteria.

Values -> (list)

User-defined criteria that maps to Key . For example, if you specified tag:ServerRole , you could specify value:WebServer to run a command on instances that include Amazon EC2 tags of ServerRole,WebServer .
