get-deployable-patch-snapshot-for-instance

Description

Retrieves the current snapshot for the patch baseline the instance uses. This API is primarily used by the AWS-RunPatchBaseline Systems Manager document.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  get-deployable-patch-snapshot-for-instance
--instance-id <value>
--snapshot-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--instance-id (string)

The ID of the instance for which the appropriate patch snapshot should be retrieved.

--snapshot-id (string)

The user-defined snapshot ID.

--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.

Examples

To retrieve the current snapshot for the patch baseline an instance uses

The following get-deployable-patch-snapshot-for-instance example retrieves details for the current snapshot for the specified patch baseline used by an instance. This command must be run from the instance using the instance credentials. To ensure it uses the instance credentials, run aws configure and specify only the Region of your instance. Leave the Access Key and Secret Key fields empty.

Tip: Use uuidgen to generate a snapshot-id.

aws ssm get-deployable-patch-snapshot-for-instance \
    --instance-id "i-1234567890abcdef0" \
    --snapshot-id "521c3536-930c-4aa9-950e-01234567abcd"

Output:

{
    "InstanceId": "i-1234567890abcdef0",
    "SnapshotId": "521c3536-930c-4aa9-950e-01234567abcd",
