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.

Interface for accessing Pricing AWS Price List Service API (AWS Price List Service) is a centralized and convenient way to programmatically query Amazon Web Services for services, products, and pricing information. The AWS Price List Service uses standardized product attributes such as Location, Storage Class, and Operating System, and provides prices at the SKU level. You can use the AWS Price List Service to build cost control and scenario planning tools, reconcile billing data, forecast future spend for budgeting purposes, and provide cost benefit analysis that compare your internal workloads with AWS.

Use GetServices without a service code to retrieve the service codes for all AWS services, then GetServices with a service code to retreive the attribute names for that service. After you have the service code and attribute names, you can use GetAttributeValues to see what values are available for an attribute. With the service code and an attribute name and value, you can use GetProducts to find specific products that you're interested in, such as an AmazonEC2 instance, with a Provisioned IOPSvolumeType.

Methods

Note:

Asynchronous operations (methods ending with Async) in the table below are for .NET 4.5 or higher. For .NET 3.5 the SDK follows the standard naming convention of BeginMethodName and EndMethodName to indicate asynchronous operations - these method pairs are not shown in the table below.

NameDescription
Public Method DescribeServices(DescribeServicesRequest)

Returns the metadata for one service or a list of the metadata for all services. Use this without a service code to get the service codes for all services. Use it with a service code, such as AmazonEC2, to get information specific to that service, such as the attribute names available for that service. For example, some of the attribute names available for EC2 are volumeType, maxIopsVolume, operation, locationType, and instanceCapacity10xlarge.

Public Method DescribeServicesAsync(DescribeServicesRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the DescribeServices operation.

Public Method GetAttributeValues(GetAttributeValuesRequest)

Returns a list of attribute values. Attibutes are similar to the details in a Price List API offer file. For a list of available attributes, see Offer File Definitions in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

Public Method GetAttributeValuesAsync(GetAttributeValuesRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the GetAttributeValues operation.

Public Method GetProducts(GetProductsRequest)

Returns a list of all products that match the filter criteria.

Public Method GetProductsAsync(GetProductsRequest, CancellationToken)

Initiates the asynchronous execution of the GetProducts operation.
