[--filters <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--owner (string)

The owner defines which image recipes you want to list. By default, this request will only show image recipes owned by your account. You can use this field to specify if you want to view image recipes owned by yourself, by Amazon, or those image recipes that have been shared with you by other customers.

Possible values:

  • Self
  • Shared
  • Amazon

--filters (list)

Use the following filters to streamline results:

  • name
  • parentImage
  • platform


A filter name and value pair that is used to return a more specific list of results from a list operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as tags, attributes, or IDs.

name -> (string)

The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

values -> (list)

The filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive.


Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "name": "string",
    "values": ["string", ...]

--max-results (integer)

The maximum items to return in a request.

--next-token (string)

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

--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.
