list-resources

Description

Returns information about the specified resources. For more information, see Discovering resources in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

You can use this action to return information about existing resources in your account and Amazon Web Services Region, whether those resources were provisioned using Cloud Control API.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-resources is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: ResourceDescriptions

Synopsis

  list-resources
--type-name <value>
[--type-version-id <value>]
[--role-arn <value>]
[--resource-model <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--type-name (string)

The name of the resource type.

--type-version-id (string)

For private resource types, the type version to use in this resource operation. If you do not specify a resource version, CloudFormation uses the default version.

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) role for Cloud Control API to use when performing this resource operation. The role specified must have the permissions required for this operation. The necessary permissions for each event handler are defined in the `` handlers `` section of the resource type definition schema .

If you do not specify a role, Cloud Control API uses a temporary session created using your Amazon Web Services user credentials.

For more information, see Specifying credentials in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

--resource-model (string)

The resource model to use to select the resources to return.

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.

Examples

To list the resources of a given type

The following list-resources example lists the AWS::Kinesis::Stream resources provisioned in your AWS account.

aws cloudcontrol list-resources \
    --type-name AWS::Kinesis::Stream

Output:

{
    "TypeName": "AWS::Kinesis::Stream",
    "ResourceDescriptions": [
        {
            "Identifier": "MyKinesisStream",
            "Properties": "{\"Name\":\"MyKinesisStream\"}"
        },
        {
            "Identifier": "AnotherStream",
            "Properties": "{\"Name\":\"AnotherStream\"}"
        }
    ]
}

For more information, see Discovering resources in the Cloud Control API User Guide.

Output

TypeName -> (string)

The name of the resource type.

ResourceDescriptions -> (list)

Information about the specified resources, including primary identifier and resource model.

(structure)

Represents information about a provisioned resource.

Identifier -> (string)

The primary identifier for the resource.

For more information, see Identifying resources in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

Properties -> (string)

A list of the resource properties and their current values.

NextToken -> (string)

If the request doesn't return all of the remaining results, NextToken is set to a token. To retrieve the next set of results, call ListResources again and assign that token to the request object's NextToken parameter. If the request returns all results, NextToken is set to null.
