[ aws . transcribe ]



Lists transcription jobs with the specified status.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--status <value>]
[--job-name-contains <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--status (string)

When specified, returns only transcription jobs with the specified status. Jobs are ordered by creation date, with the newest jobs returned first. If you don’t specify a status, Amazon Transcribe returns all transcription jobs ordered by creation date.

Possible values:


--job-name-contains (string)

When specified, the jobs returned in the list are limited to jobs whose name contains the specified string.

--next-token (string)

If the result of the previous request to ListTranscriptionJobs is truncated, include the NextToken to fetch the next set of jobs.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of jobs to return in each page of results. If there are fewer results than the value you specify, only the actual results are returned. If you do not specify a value, the default of 5 is used.

--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.
