ListAvailableSolutionStacks - AWS Elastic Beanstalk


Returns a list of the available solution stack names, with the public version first and then in reverse chronological order.

This action only returns information about resources that the calling principle has IAM permissions to access. For example, consider a case where a user only has permission to access one of three resources. When the user calls the this action, the response will only include the one resource that the user has permission to access instead of all three resources. If the user doesn’t have access to any of the resources an empty result is returned.
