list-associations

Description

Returns all State Manager associations in the current Amazon Web Services account and Amazon Web Services Region. You can limit the results to a specific State Manager association document or managed node by specifying a filter. State Manager is a capability of Amazon Web Services Systems Manager.

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-associations 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: Associations

Options

--association-filter-list (list)

One or more filters. Use a filter to return a more specific list of results.

Note

Filtering associations using the InstanceID attribute only returns legacy associations created using the InstanceID attribute. Associations targeting the managed node that are part of the Target Attributes ResourceGroup or Tags aren't returned.

(structure)

Describes a filter.

key -> (string)

The name of the filter.

Note

InstanceId has been deprecated.

value -> (string)

The filter value.

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "InstanceId"|"Name"|"AssociationId"|"AssociationStatusName"|"LastExecutedBefore"|"LastExecutedAfter"|"AssociationName"|"ResourceGroupName",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Output

Associations -> (list)

The associations.

(structure)

Describes an association of a Amazon Web Services Systems Manager document (SSM document) and a managed node.

Name -> (string)

The name of the SSM document.

InstanceId -> (string)

The managed node ID.

AssociationId -> (string)

The ID created by the system when you create an association. An association is a binding between a document and a set of targets with a schedule.

AssociationVersion -> (string)

The association version.

DocumentVersion -> (string)

The version of the document used in the association. If you change a document version for a State Manager association, Systems Manager immediately runs the association unless you previously specifed the apply-only-at-cron-interval parameter.

Warning

State Manager doesn't support running associations that use a new version of a document if that document is shared from another account. State Manager always runs the default version of a document if shared from another account, even though the Systems Manager console shows that a new version was processed. If you want to run an association using a new version of a document shared form another account, you must set the document version to default .

Targets -> (list)

The managed nodes targeted by the request to create an association. You can target all managed nodes in an Amazon Web Services account by specifying the InstanceIds key with a value of * .

(structure)

An array of search criteria that targets managed nodes using a key-value pair that you specify.

Note

One or more targets must be specified for maintenance window Run Command-type tasks. Depending on the task, targets are optional for other maintenance window task types (Automation, Lambda, and Step Functions). For more information about running tasks that don't specify targets, see Registering maintenance window tasks without targets in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide .

Supported formats include the following.

  • Key=InstanceIds,Values=<instance-id-1>,<instance-id-2>,<instance-id-3>
  • Key=tag:<my-tag-key>,Values=<my-tag-value-1>,<my-tag-value-2>
  • Key=tag-key,Values=<my-tag-key-1>,<my-tag-key-2>
  • Run Command and Maintenance window targets only : Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=<resource-group-name>
  • Maintenance window targets only : Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=<resource-type-1>,<resource-type-2>
  • Automation targets only : Key=ResourceGroup;Values=<resource-group-name>

For example:

  • Key=InstanceIds,Values=i-02573cafcfEXAMPLE,i-0471e04240EXAMPLE,i-07782c72faEXAMPLE
  • Key=tag:CostCenter,Values=CostCenter1,CostCenter2,CostCenter3
  • Key=tag-key,Values=Name,Instance-Type,CostCenter
  • Run Command and Maintenance window targets only : Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=ProductionResourceGroup This example demonstrates how to target all resources in the resource group ProductionResourceGroup in your maintenance window.
  • Maintenance window targets only : Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=AWS::EC2::INSTANCE,AWS::EC2::VPC This example demonstrates how to target only Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and VPCs in your maintenance window.
  • Automation targets only : Key=ResourceGroup,Values=MyResourceGroup
  • State Manager association targets only : Key=InstanceIds,Values=* This example demonstrates how to target all managed instances in the Amazon Web Services Region where the association was created.

For more information about how to send commands that target managed nodes using Key,Value parameters, see Targeting multiple instances in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide .

Key -> (string)

User-defined criteria for sending commands that target managed nodes that meet the criteria.

Values -> (list)

User-defined criteria that maps to Key . For example, if you specified tag:ServerRole , you could specify value:WebServer to run a command on instances that include EC2 tags of ServerRole,WebServer .

Depending on the type of target, the maximum number of values for a key might be lower than the global maximum of 50.

(string)

LastExecutionDate -> (timestamp)

The date on which the association was last run.

Overview -> (structure)

Information about the association.

Status -> (string)

The status of the association. Status can be: Pending, Success, or Failed.

DetailedStatus -> (string)

A detailed status of the association.

AssociationStatusAggregatedCount -> (map)

Returns the number of targets for the association status. For example, if you created an association with two managed nodes, and one of them was successful, this would return the count of managed nodes by status.

key -> (string)

value -> (integer)

ScheduleExpression -> (string)

A cron expression that specifies a schedule when the association runs. The schedule runs in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

AssociationName -> (string)

The association name.

ScheduleOffset -> (integer)

Number of days to wait after the scheduled day to run an association.

TargetMaps -> (list)

A key-value mapping of document parameters to target resources. Both Targets and TargetMaps can't be specified together.

(map)

key -> (string)

value -> (list)

(string)

NextToken -> (string)

The token to use when requesting the next set of items. If there are no additional items to return, the string is empty.
