--bulk-deployment-id (string) The ID of the bulk deployment.

--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.

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To check the status of your bulk deployment

The following get-bulk-deployment-status example retrieves status information for the specified bulk deployment operation. In this example, the file that specified the groups to be deployed has an invalid input record.

aws greengrass get-bulk-deployment-status \
    --bulk-deployment-id "870fb41b-6288-4e0c-bc76-a7ba4b4d3267"


    "BulkDeploymentMetrics": {
        "InvalidInputRecords": 1,
        "RecordsProcessed": 1,
        "RetryAttempts": 0
    "BulkDeploymentStatus": "Completed",
    "CreatedAt": "2019-06-25T16:11:33.265Z",
    "tags": {}

For more information, see Create Bulk Deployments for Groups in the AWS IoT Greengrass Developer Guide.


BulkDeploymentMetrics -> (structure)

Relevant metrics on input records processed during bulk deployment.

InvalidInputRecords -> (integer)

The total number of records that returned a non-retryable error. For example, this can occur if a group record from the input file uses an invalid format or specifies a nonexistent group version, or if the execution role doesn't grant permission to deploy a group or group version.

RecordsProcessed -> (integer)

The total number of group records from the input file that have been processed so far, or attempted.

RetryAttempts -> (integer)

The total number of deployment attempts that returned a retryable error. For example, a retry is triggered if the attempt to deploy a group returns a throttling error. ''StartBulkDeployment'' retries a group deployment up to five times.

BulkDeploymentStatus -> (string)

The status of the bulk deployment.

CreatedAt -> (string)

The time, in ISO format, when the deployment was created.

ErrorDetails -> (list)

Error details


Details about the error.

DetailedErrorCode -> (string)

A detailed error code.

DetailedErrorMessage -> (string)

A detailed error message.

ErrorMessage -> (string)

Error message

tags -> (map)

Tag(s) attached to the resource arn.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)
