Lists all service quotas for the specified AWS service. This request returns a list of the service quotas for the specified service. You'll see the default values are the values that AWS provides for the quotas.


Always check the NextToken response parameter when calling any of the List* operations. These operations can return an unexpected list of results, even when there are more results available. When this happens, the NextToken response parameter contains a value to pass the next call to the same API to request the next part of the list.

Request Syntax

{ "MaxResults": number, "NextToken": "string", "ServiceCode": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


(Optional) Limits the number of results that you want to include in the response. If you don't include this parameter, the response defaults to a value that's specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the specified maximum, the NextToken element is present and has a value (isn't null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the call to the operation to get the next part of the results. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 100.

Required: No


(Optional) Use this parameter in a request if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request that indicates that there's more output available. In a subsequent call, set it to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 2048.

Pattern: ^[a-zA-Z0-9/+]*={0,2}$

Required: No


The identifier for a service. When performing an operation, use the ServiceCode to specify a particular service.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 63.

Pattern: [a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9-]{1,63}

Required: Yes

Response Syntax

{ "NextToken": "string", "Quotas": [ { "Adjustable": boolean, "ErrorReason": { "ErrorCode": "string", "ErrorMessage": "string" }, "GlobalQuota": boolean, "Period": { "PeriodUnit": "string", "PeriodValue": number }, "QuotaArn": "string", "QuotaCode": "string", "QuotaName": "string", "ServiceCode": "string", "ServiceName": "string", "Unit": "string", "UsageMetric": { "MetricDimensions": { "string" : "string" }, "MetricName": "string", "MetricNamespace": "string", "MetricStatisticRecommendation": "string" }, "Value": number } ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


If present in the response, this value indicates there's more output available that what's included in the current response. This can occur even when the response includes no values at all, such as when you ask for a filtered view of a very long list. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to continue processing and get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back empty (as null).

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 2048.

Pattern: ^[a-zA-Z0-9/+]*={0,2}$
