[ aws . support ]



Returns the refresh status of the AWS Trusted Advisor checks that have the specified check IDs. You can get the check IDs by calling the DescribeTrustedAdvisorChecks operation.

Some checks are refreshed automatically, and you can't return their refresh statuses by using the DescribeTrustedAdvisorCheckRefreshStatuses operation. If you call this operation for these checks, you might see an InvalidParameterValue error.


  • You must have a Business or Enterprise Support plan to use the AWS Support API.
  • If you call the AWS Support API from an account that does not have a Business or Enterprise Support plan, the SubscriptionRequiredException error message appears. For information about changing your support plan, see AWS Support .

"string" "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.

--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.
