--account-id <value>
--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--account-id (string)

The account ID for the account that owns the specified access point.

--name (string)

The name of the access point whose policy status you want to retrieve.

--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.

The access point policy status indicates whether the access point's policy allows public access. Before running this example, replace the access point name and account number with appropriate values for your use case.
