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 versions available for your account in an AWS Region. Provides summary information about each platform version. Compare to DescribePlatformVersion , which provides full details about a single platform version.

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

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-platform-versions 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: PlatformSummaryList


[--filters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--filters (list)

Criteria for restricting the resulting list of platform versions. The filter is interpreted as a logical conjunction (AND) of the separate PlatformFilter terms.


Describes criteria to restrict the results when listing platform versions.

The filter is evaluated as follows: Type Operator Values[1]

Type -> (string)

The platform version attribute to which the filter values are applied.

Valid values: PlatformName | PlatformVersion | PlatformStatus | PlatformBranchName | PlatformLifecycleState | PlatformOwner | SupportedTier | SupportedAddon | ProgrammingLanguageName | OperatingSystemName

Operator -> (string)

The operator to apply to the Type with each of the Values .

Valid values: = | != | < | <= | > | >= | contains | begins_with | ends_with

Values -> (list)

The list of values applied to the filtering platform version attribute. Only one value is supported for all current operators.

The following list shows valid filter values for some filter attributes.

  • PlatformStatus : Creating | Failed | Ready | Deleting | Deleted
  • PlatformLifecycleState : recommended
  • SupportedTier : WebServer/Standard | Worker/SQS/HTTP
  • SupportedAddon : Log/S3 | Monitoring/Healthd | WorkerDaemon/SQSD


Shorthand Syntax:

Type=string,Operator=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--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.


PlatformSummaryList -> (list)

Summary information about the platform versions.


Summary information about a platform version.

PlatformArn -> (string)

The ARN of the platform version.

PlatformOwner -> (string)

The AWS account ID of the person who created the platform version.

PlatformStatus -> (string)

The status of the platform version. You can create an environment from the platform version once it is ready.

PlatformCategory -> (string)

The category of platform version.

OperatingSystemName -> (string)

The operating system used by the platform version.

OperatingSystemVersion -> (string)

The version of the operating system used by the platform version.

SupportedTierList -> (list)

The tiers in which the platform version runs.


SupportedAddonList -> (list)

The additions associated with the platform version.


PlatformLifecycleState -> (string)

The state of the platform version in its lifecycle.

Possible values: recommended | empty

If an empty value is returned, the platform version is supported but isn't the recommended one for its branch.

PlatformVersion -> (string)

The version string of the platform version.

PlatformBranchName -> (string)

The platform branch to which the platform version belongs.

PlatformBranchLifecycleState -> (string)

The state of the platform version's branch in its lifecycle.

Possible values: beta | supported | deprecated | retired

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.
