Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Service Description

This is the Recycle Bin API Reference. This documentation provides descriptions and syntax for each of the actions and data types in Recycle Bin.

Recycle Bin is a snapshot recovery feature that enables you to restore accidentally deleted snapshots. When using Recycle Bin, if your snapshots are deleted, they are retained in the Recycle Bin for a time period that you specify.

You can restore a snapshot from the Recycle Bin at any time before its retention period expires. After you restore a snapshot from the Recycle Bin, the snapshot is removed from the Recycle Bin, and you can then use it in the same way you use any other snapshot in your account. If the retention period expires and the snapshot is not restored, the snapshot is permanently deleted from the Recycle Bin and is no longer available for recovery. For more information about Recycle Bin, see Recycle Bin in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

Sending a Request Using Rbin

var rbin = new AWS.Rbin();
rbin.createRule(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the Rbin object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var rbin = new AWS.Rbin({apiVersion: '2021-06-15'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the rbin service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  rbin: '2021-06-15',
  // other service API versions
};

var rbin = new AWS.Rbin();

Updates an existing Recycle Bin retention rule. For more information, see Update Recycle Bin retention rules in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the updateRule operation

var params = {
  Identifier: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Description: 'STRING_VALUE',
  ResourceTags: [
    {
      ResourceTagKey: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
      ResourceTagValue: 'STRING_VALUE'
    },
    /* more items */
  ],
  ResourceType: EBS_SNAPSHOT,
  RetentionPeriod: {
    RetentionPeriodUnit: DAYS, /* required */
    RetentionPeriodValue: 'NUMBER_VALUE' /* required */
  }
};
rbin.updateRule(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Identifier — (String)

      The unique ID of the retention rule to update.

    • RetentionPeriod — (map)

      Information about the retention period for which the retention rule is to retain resources.

      • RetentionPeriodValuerequired — (Integer)

        The period value for which the retention rule is to retain resources. The period is measured using the unit specified for RetentionPeriodUnit.

      • RetentionPeriodUnitrequired — (String)

        The unit of time in which the retention period is measured. Currently, only DAYS is supported.

        Possible values include:
        • "DAYS"
    • Description — (String)

      The retention rule description.

    • ResourceType — (String)

      The resource type to be retained by the retention rule. Currently, only Amazon EBS snapshots are supported.

      Possible values include:
      • "EBS_SNAPSHOT"
    • ResourceTags — (Array<map>)

      Information about the resource tags to use to identify resources that are to be retained by the retention rule. The retention rule retains only deleted snapshots that have one or more of the specified tag key and value pairs. If a snapshot is deleted, but it does not have any of the specified tag key and value pairs, it is immediately deleted without being retained by the retention rule.

      You can add the same tag key and value pair to a maximum or five retention rules.

      • ResourceTagKeyrequired — (String)

        The tag key.

      • ResourceTagValue — (String)

        The tag value.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      • Identifier — (String)

        The unique ID of the retention rule.

      • RetentionPeriod — (map)

        Information about the retention period for which a retention rule is to retain resources.

        • RetentionPeriodValuerequired — (Integer)

          The period value for which the retention rule is to retain resources. The period is measured using the unit specified for RetentionPeriodUnit.

        • RetentionPeriodUnitrequired — (String)
