[ aws . ssm ]



Retrieves the individual task executions (one per target) for a particular task executed as part of a Maintenance Window execution.

See also: AWS API Documentation


--window-execution-id <value>
--task-id <value>
[--filters <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--window-execution-id (string)

The ID of the Maintenance Window execution the task is part of.

--task-id (string)

The ID of the specific task in the Maintenance Window task that should be retrieved.

--filters (list)

Optional filters used to scope down the returned task invocations. The supported filter key is STATUS with the corresponding values PENDING, IN_PROGRESS, SUCCESS, FAILED, TIMED_OUT, CANCELLING, and CANCELLED.

Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items to return for this call. The call also returns a token that you can specify in a subsequent call to get the next set of results.

--next-token (string)

The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)

--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.

--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.


To get the specific task invocations performed for a task execution

This example lists the invocations for a task executed as part of a maintenance window execution.
