DescribeSnapshots - Amazon FSx

DescribeSnapshots

Returns the description of specific Amazon FSx snapshots, if a SnapshotIds value is provided. Otherwise, this operation returns all snapshots owned by your AWS account in the AWS Region of the endpoint that you're calling.

When retrieving all snapshots, you can optionally specify the MaxResults parameter to limit the number of snapshots in a response. If more backups remain, Amazon FSx returns a NextToken value in the response. In this case, send a later request with the NextToken request parameter set to the value of NextToken from the last response.

Use this operation in an iterative process to retrieve a list of your snapshots. DescribeSnapshots is called first without a NextToken value. Then the operation continues to be called with the NextToken parameter set to the value of the last NextToken value until a response has no NextToken value.

When using this operation, keep the following in mind:

  • The operation might return fewer than the MaxResults value of snapshot descriptions while still including a NextToken value.

  • The order of snapshots returned in the response of one DescribeSnapshots call and the order of backups returned across the responses of a multi-call iteration is unspecified.

Request Syntax

{ "Filters": [ { "Name": "string", "Values": [ "string" ] } ], "MaxResults": number, "NextToken": "string", "SnapshotIds": [ "string" ] }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

Filters

The filters structure. The supported names are file-system-id or volume-id.

Type: Array of SnapshotFilter objects

Array Members: Maximum number of 2 items.

Required: No

MaxResults

The maximum number of resources to return in the response. This value must be an integer greater than zero.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 2147483647.

Required: No

NextToken

(Optional) Opaque pagination token returned from a previous operation (String). If present, this token indicates from what point you can continue processing the request, where the previous NextToken value left off.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 255.

Pattern: ^(?:[A-Za-z0-9+\/]{4})*(?:[A-Za-z0-9+\/]{2}==|[A-Za-z0-9+\/]{3}=)?$

Required: No

SnapshotIds

The IDs of the snapshots that you want to retrieve. This parameter value overrides any filters. If any IDs aren't found, a SnapshotNotFound error occurs.

Type: Array of strings

Array Members: Maximum number of 50 items.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 11. Maximum length of 28.

Pattern: ^((fs)?volsnap-[0-9a-f]{8,})$

Required: No
