First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . elasticbeanstalk ]



Lists the platform branches available for your account in an AWS Region. Provides summary information about each platform branch.

For definitions of platform branch and other platform-related terms, see AWS Elastic Beanstalk Platforms Glossary .

--filters (list)

Criteria for restricting the resulting list of platform branches. The filter is evaluated as a logical conjunction (AND) of the separate SearchFilter terms.

The following list shows valid attribute values for each of the SearchFilter terms. Most operators take a single value. The in and not_in operators can take multiple values.

  • Attribute = BranchName :
    • Operator : = | != | begins_with | ends_with | contains | in | not_in
  • Attribute = LifecycleState :
    • Operator : = | != | in | not_in
    • Values : beta | supported | deprecated | retired
  • Attribute = PlatformName :
    • Operator : = | != | begins_with | ends_with | contains | in | not_in
  • Attribute = TierType :
    • Operator : = | !=
    • Values : WebServer/Standard | Worker/SQS/HTTP

Array size: limited to 10 SearchFilter objects.

Within each SearchFilter item, the Values array is limited to 10 items.


Describes criteria to restrict a list of results.

For operators that apply a single value to the attribute, the filter is evaluated as follows: Attribute Operator Values[1]

Some operators, e.g. in , can apply multiple values. In this case, the filter is evaluated as a logical union (OR) of applications of the operator to the attribute with each one of the values: (Attribute Operator Values[1]) OR (Attribute Operator Values[2]) OR ...

The valid values for attributes of SearchFilter depend on the API action. For valid values, see the reference page for the API action you're calling that takes a SearchFilter parameter.

Attribute -> (string)

The result attribute to which the filter values are applied. Valid values vary by API action.

Operator -> (string)

The operator to apply to the Attribute with each of the Values . Valid values vary by Attribute .

Values -> (list)

The list of values applied to the Attribute and Operator attributes. Number of values and valid values vary by Attribute .


Shorthand Syntax:

Attribute=string,Operator=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Attribute": "string",
    "Operator": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...]

--max-records (integer)

The maximum number of platform branch values returned in one call.

--next-token (string)

For a paginated request. Specify a token from a previous response page to retrieve the next response page. All other parameter values must be identical to the ones specified in the initial request.

If no NextToken is specified, the first page is retrieved.

--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.


PlatformBranchSummaryList -> (list)

Summary information about the platform branches.


Summary information about a platform branch.

PlatformName -> (string)

The name of the platform to which this platform branch belongs.

BranchName -> (string)

The name of the platform branch.

LifecycleState -> (string)

The support life cycle state of the platform branch.

Possible values: beta | supported | deprecated | retired

BranchOrder -> (integer)

An ordinal number that designates the order in which platform branches have been added to a platform. This can be helpful, for example, if your code calls the ListPlatformBranches action and then displays a list of platform branches.

A larger BranchOrder value designates a newer platform branch within the platform.

SupportedTierList -> (list)

The environment tiers that platform versions in this branch support.

Possible values: WebServer/Standard | Worker/SQS/HTTP


NextToken -> (string)

In a paginated request, if this value isn't null , it's the token that you can pass in a subsequent request to get the next response page.
