--next-token (string)

If the result of the previous request to list-vocabularies was truncated, include the next-token to fetch the next set of jobs.

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of vocabularies to return in the response. If there are fewer results in the list, this response contains only the actual results.

--state-equals (string)

When specified, only returns vocabularies with the state-equals field equal to the specified state.

Possible values:


--name-contains (string)

When specified, the vocabularies returned in the list are limited to vocabularies whose name contains the specified string. The search is case-insensitive, list-vocabularies will return both "vocabularyname" and "VocabularyName" in the response list.

--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.

--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.
