Synopsis

Calls the AWS Cost Explorer ListCostCategoryDefinitions API operation.

Syntax

Get-CECostCategoryDefinitionList
-EffectiveOn <String>
-NextToken <String>
-Select <String>
-NoAutoIteration <SwitchParameter>

Description

Cost Category is in public beta for AWS Billing and Cost Management and is subject to change. Your use of Cost Categories is subject to the Beta Service Participation terms of the AWS Service Terms (Section 1.10). Returns the name, ARN and effective dates of all Cost Categories defined in the account. You have the option to use EffectiveOn to return a list of Cost Categories that were active on a specific date. If there is no EffectiveOn specified, you’ll see Cost Categories that are effective on the current date. If Cost Category is still effective, EffectiveEnd is omitted in the response.

This cmdlet automatically pages all available results to the pipeline - parameters related to iteration are only needed if you want to manually control the paginated output. To disable autopagination, use -NoAutoIteration.

Parameters

-EffectiveOn <String>
The date when the Cost Category was effective.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NextToken <String>
The token to retrieve the next set of results. Amazon Web Services provides the token when the response from a previous call has more results than the maximum page size.You can use this information to retrieve the full Cost Category information using DescribeCostCategory.
Note: This parameter is only used if you are manually controlling output pagination of the service API call.
In order to manually control output pagination, use '-NextToken $null' for the first call and '-NextToken $AWSHistory.LastServiceResponse.NextToken' for subsequent calls.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NoAutoIteration <SwitchParameter>
By default the cmdlet will auto-iterate and retrieve all results to the pipeline by performing multiple service calls. If set, the cmdlet will retrieve only the next 'page' of results using the value of NextToken as the start point.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'CostCategoryReferences'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.CostExplorer.Model.ListCostCategoryDefinitionsResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.CostExplorer.Model.ListCostCategoryDefinitionsResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
