ListContainers - AWS Elemental MediaStore


Lists the properties of all containers in AWS Elemental MediaStore.

You can query to receive all the containers in one response. Or you can include the MaxResults parameter to receive a limited number of containers in each response. In this case, the response includes a token. To get the next set of containers, send the command again, this time with the NextToken parameter (with the returned token as its value). The next set of responses appears, with a token if there are still more containers to receive.

See also DescribeContainer, which gets the properties of one container.
