--analyzer-name (string)

The name of the analyzer retrieved.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To retrieve information about the specified analyzer

The following get-analyzer example retrieves information about the specified analyzer in your AWS account.

aws accessanalyzer get-analyzer \

analyzer -> (structure)

An AnalyzerSummary object that contains information about the analyzer.

arn -> (string)

The ARN of the analyzer.

name -> (string)

The name of the analyzer.

type -> (string)

The type of analyzer, which corresponds to the zone of trust chosen for the analyzer.

createdAt -> (timestamp)

A timestamp for the time at which the analyzer was created.

lastResourceAnalyzed -> (string)

The resource that was most recently analyzed by the analyzer.

lastResourceAnalyzedAt -> (timestamp)

The time at which the most recently analyzed resource was analyzed.

tags -> (map)

The tags added to the analyzer.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

status -> (string)

The status of the analyzer. An Active analyzer successfully monitors supported resources and generates new findings. The analyzer is Disabled when a user action, such as removing trusted access for Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer from Organizations, causes the analyzer to stop generating new findings. The status is Creating when the analyzer creation is in progress and Failed when the analyzer creation has failed.

statusReason -> (structure)

The statusReason provides more details about the current status of the analyzer. For example, if the creation for the analyzer fails, a Failed status is returned. For an analyzer with organization as the type, this failure can be due to an issue with creating the service-linked roles required in the member accounts of the Amazon Web Services organization.

code -> (string)

The reason code for the current status of the analyzer.

configuration -> (tagged union structure)

Specifies whether the analyzer is an external access or unused access analyzer.


This is a Tagged Union structure. Only one of the following top level keys can be set: unusedAccess.

unusedAccess -> (structure)

Specifies the configuration of an unused access analyzer for an Amazon Web Services organization or account. External access analyzers do not support any configuration.

unusedAccessAge -> (integer)

The specified access age in days for which to generate findings for unused access. For example, if you specify 90 days, the analyzer will generate findings for IAM entities within the accounts of the selected organization for any access that hasn't been used in 90 or more days since the analyzer's last scan. You can choose a value between 1 and 180 days.
