-Filter <ExportFilter[]>
-StartTime <DateTime>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Begins the export of discovered data to an S3 bucket. If you specify agentIds in a filter, the task exports up to 72 hours of detailed data collected by the identified Application Discovery Agent, including network, process, and performance details. A time range for exported agent data may be set by using startTime and endTime. Export of detailed agent data is limited to five concurrently running exports. If you do not include an agentIds filter, summary data is exported that includes both AWS Agentless Discovery Connector data and summary data from AWS Discovery Agents. Export of summary data is limited to two exports per day.

Parameters

-EndTime <DateTime>
The end timestamp for exported data from the single Application Discovery Agent selected in the filters. If no value is specified, exported data includes the most recent data collected by the agent.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ExportDataFormat <String[]>
The file format for the returned export data. Default value is CSV. Note:TheGRAPHMLoption has been deprecated.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-Filter <ExportFilter[]>
If a filter is present, it selects the single agentId of the Application Discovery Agent for which data is exported. The agentId can be found in the results of the DescribeAgents API or CLI. If no filter is present, startTime and endTime are ignored and exported data includes both Agentless Discovery Connector data and summary data from Application Discovery agents.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesFilters
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the ExportDataFormat parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^ExportDataFormat' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'ExportId'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.ApplicationDiscoveryService.Model.StartExportTaskResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.ApplicationDiscoveryService.Model.StartExportTaskResponse 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)
-StartTime <DateTime>
The start timestamp for exported data from the single Application Discovery Agent selected in the filters. If no value is specified, data is exported starting from the first data collected by the agent.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>

-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage.
