AWS CodeDeploy
API Reference (API Version 2014-10-06)



The newer BatchGetDeploymentTargets should be used instead because it works with all compute types. ListDeploymentInstances throws an exception if it is used with a compute platform other than EC2/On-premises or AWS Lambda.

Lists the instance for a deployment associated with the applicable IAM user or AWS account.
