get-default-patch-baseline

Description

Retrieves the default patch baseline. Note that Systems Manager supports creating multiple default patch baselines. For example, you can create a default patch baseline for each operating system.

If you do not specify an operating system value, the default patch baseline for Windows is returned.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-default-patch-baseline
[--operating-system <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--operating-system (string)

Returns the default patch baseline for the specified operating system.

Possible values:

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

--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.
