describe-patch-properties

Description

Lists the properties of available patches organized by product, product family, classification, severity, and other properties of available patches. You can use the reported properties in the filters you specify in requests for actions such as CreatePatchBaseline , UpdatePatchBaseline , DescribeAvailablePatches , and DescribePatchBaselines .

The following section lists the properties that can be used in filters for each major operating system type:

AMAZON_LINUX

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

AMAZON_LINUX_2

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

CENTOS

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

DEBIAN

Valid properties: PRODUCT, PRIORITY

MACOS

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION

ORACLE_LINUX

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

REDHAT_ENTERPRISE_LINUX

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

SUSE

Valid properties: PRODUCT, CLASSIFICATION, SEVERITY

UBUNTU

Valid properties: PRODUCT, PRIORITY

WINDOWS

Valid properties: PRODUCT, PRODUCT_FAMILY, CLASSIFICATION, MSRC_SEVERITY

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-patch-properties 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: Properties

Synopsis

  describe-patch-properties
--operating-system <value>
--property <value>
[--patch-set <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--operating-system (string)

The operating system type for which to list patches.

Possible values:

  • WINDOWS
  • AMAZON_LINUX
  • AMAZON_LINUX_2
  • UBUNTU
  • REDHAT_ENTERPRISE_LINUX
  • SUSE
  • CENTOS
  • ORACLE_LINUX
  • DEBIAN
  • MACOS

--property (string)

The patch property for which you want to view patch details.

Possible values:

  • PRODUCT
  • PRODUCT_FAMILY
  • CLASSIFICATION
  • MSRC_SEVERITY
  • PRIORITY
  • SEVERITY

--patch-set (string)

Indicates whether to list patches for the Windows operating system or for Microsoft applications. Not applicable for the Linux or macOS operating systems.

Possible values:

  • OS
  • APPLICATION

--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 list the Amazon Linux patch availability

The following describe-patch-properties example displays a list of the Amazon Linux products for which patches are available in your AWS account.

aws ssm describe-patch-properties \
    --operating-system AMAZON_LINUX \
    --property PRODUCT

Output:

{
    "Properties": [
        {
            "Name": "AmazonLinux2012.03"
        },
        {
            "Name": "AmazonLinux2012.09"
        },
