describe-patch-group-state

Description

Returns high-level aggregated patch compliance state information for a patch group.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-patch-group-state
--patch-group <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--patch-group (string)

The name of the patch group whose patch snapshot should be retrieved.

--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.

The following describe-patch-group-state example retrieves the high-level patch compliance summary for a patch group.

aws ssm describe-patch-group-state \
    --patch-group "Production"

Output

Instances -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes in the patch group.

InstancesWithInstalledPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with installed patches.

InstancesWithInstalledOtherPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches installed that aren't defined in the patch baseline.

InstancesWithInstalledPendingRebootPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches installed by Patch Manager that haven't been rebooted after the patch installation. The status of these managed nodes is NON_COMPLIANT .

InstancesWithInstalledRejectedPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches installed that are specified in a RejectedPatches list. Patches with a status of INSTALLED_REJECTED were typically installed before they were added to a RejectedPatches list.

Note

If ALLOW_AS_DEPENDENCY is the specified option for RejectedPatchesAction , the value of InstancesWithInstalledRejectedPatches will always be 0 (zero).

InstancesWithMissingPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with missing patches from the patch baseline.

InstancesWithFailedPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches from the patch baseline that failed to install.

InstancesWithNotApplicablePatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches that aren't applicable.

InstancesWithUnreportedNotApplicablePatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with NotApplicable patches beyond the supported limit, which aren't reported by name to Inventory. Inventory is a capability of Amazon Web Services Systems Manager.

InstancesWithCriticalNonCompliantPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes where patches that are specified as Critical for compliance reporting in the patch baseline aren't installed. These patches might be missing, have failed installation, were rejected, or were installed but awaiting a required managed node reboot. The status of these managed nodes is NON_COMPLIANT .

InstancesWithSecurityNonCompliantPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes where patches that are specified as Security in a patch advisory aren't installed. These patches might be missing, have failed installation, were rejected, or were installed but awaiting a required managed node reboot. The status of these managed nodes is NON_COMPLIANT .

InstancesWithOtherNonCompliantPatches -> (integer)

The number of managed nodes with patches installed that are specified as other than Critical or Security but aren't compliant with the patch baseline. The status of these managed nodes is NON_COMPLIANT .
