[ aws . ssm ]



For a given Maintenance Window execution, lists the tasks that were executed.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--window-execution-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 whose task executions should be retrieved.

--filters (list)

Optional filters used to scope down the returned tasks. 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. 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.
