public class DescribeJobDefinitionsRequest : AmazonBatchRequest

The DescribeJobDefinitionsRequest type exposes the following members



Public Property JobDefinitionName System.String

Gets and sets the property JobDefinitionName.

The name of the job definition to describe.

Public Property JobDefinitions System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String>

Gets and sets the property JobDefinitions.

A list of up to 100 job definition names or full Amazon Resource Name (ARN) entries.

Public Property MaxResults System.Int32

Gets and sets the property MaxResults.

The maximum number of results returned by DescribeJobDefinitions in paginated output. When this parameter is used, DescribeJobDefinitions only returns maxResults results in a single page along with a nextToken response element. The remaining results of the initial request can be seen by sending another DescribeJobDefinitions request with the returned nextToken value. This value can be between 1 and 100. If this parameter is not used, then DescribeJobDefinitions returns up to 100 results and a nextToken value if applicable.

Public Property NextToken System.String

Gets and sets the property NextToken.

The nextToken value returned from a previous paginated DescribeJobDefinitions request where maxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the nextToken value. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

This token should be treated as an opaque identifier that is only used to retrieve the next items in a list and not for other programmatic purposes.

Public Property Status System.String

Gets and sets the property Status.

The status with which to filter job definitions.


This example describes all of your active job definitions.

To describe active job definitions

var response = client.DescribeJobDefinitions(new DescribeJobDefinitionsRequest 
    Status = "ACTIVE"

List<JobDefinition> jobDefinitions = response.JobDefinitions;
