AWS SDK Version 2 for .NET
API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

.NET Framework 3.5
Returns the description of a specific Amazon EFS file system if either the file system CreationToken or the FileSystemId is provided; otherwise, returns descriptions of all file systems owned by the caller's AWS account in the AWS region of the endpoint that you're calling.

When retrieving all file system descriptions, you can optionally specify the MaxItems parameter to limit the number of descriptions in a response. If more file system descriptions remain, Amazon EFS returns a NextMarker, an opaque token, in the response. In this case, you should send a subsequent request with the Marker request parameter set to the value of NextMarker.

So to retrieve a list of your file system descriptions, the expected usage of this API is an iterative process of first calling DescribeFileSystems without the Marker and then continuing to call it with the Marker parameter set to the value of the NextMarker from the previous response until the response has no NextMarker.

Note that the implementation may return fewer than MaxItems file system descriptions while still including a NextMarker value.

The order of file systems returned in the response of one DescribeFileSystems call, and the order of file systems returned across the responses of a multi-call iteration, is unspecified.

This operation requires permission for the elasticfilesystem:DescribeFileSystems action.
