[ aws . storagegateway ]

describe-chap-credentials

Description

Returns an array of Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) credentials information for a specified iSCSI target, one for each target-initiator pair. This operation is supported in the volume and tape gateway types.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-chap-credentials
--target-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--target-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the iSCSI volume target. Use the DescribeStorediSCSIVolumes operation to return to retrieve the TargetARN for specified VolumeARN.

--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.

Output

ChapCredentials -> (list)

An array of ChapInfo objects that represent CHAP credentials. Each object in the array contains CHAP credential information for one target-initiator pair. If no CHAP credentials are set, an empty array is returned. CHAP credential information is provided in a JSON object with the following fields:

  • InitiatorName : The iSCSI initiator that connects to the target.
  • SecretToAuthenticateInitiator : The secret key that the initiator (for example, the Windows client) must provide to participate in mutual CHAP with the target.
  • SecretToAuthenticateTarget : The secret key that the target must provide to participate in mutual CHAP with the initiator (e.g. Windows client).
  • TargetARN : The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the storage volume.

(structure)

Describes Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) information that supports authentication between your gateway and iSCSI initiators.

TargetARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the volume.

Valid Values: 50 to 500 lowercase letters, numbers, periods (.), and hyphens (-).

SecretToAuthenticateInitiator -> (string)

The secret key that the initiator (for example, the Windows client) must provide to participate in mutual CHAP with the target.

InitiatorName -> (string)

The iSCSI initiator that connects to the target.

SecretToAuthenticateTarget -> (string)

The secret key that the target must provide to participate in mutual CHAP with the initiator (e.g., Windows client).
