.NET Framework 4.5
Container for the parameters to the DescribeStackResources operation. Returns AWS resource descriptions for running and deleted stacks. If StackName is specified, all the associated resources that are part of the stack are returned. If PhysicalResourceId is specified, the associated resources of the stack that the resource belongs to are returned. Only the first 100 resources will be returned. If your stack has more resources than this, you should use ListStackResources instead.

For deleted stacks, DescribeStackResources returns resource information for up to 90 days after the stack has been deleted.

You must specify either StackName or PhysicalResourceId, but not both. In addition, you can specify LogicalResourceId to filter the returned result. For more information about resources, the LogicalResourceId and PhysicalResourceId, go to the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

A ValidationError is returned if you specify both StackName and PhysicalResourceId in the same request.

The logical name of the resource as specified in the template.

Default: There is no default value.

Default: There is no default value.

Public Property StackName System.String Gets and sets the property StackName.

  • Running stacks: You can specify either the stack's name or its unique stack ID.
