Options

--stack-set-name (string)

The name or unique ID of the stack set whose description you want.

--call-as (string)

[Service-managed permissions] Specifies whether you are acting as an account administrator in the organization's management account or as a delegated administrator in a member account.

By default, SELF is specified. Use SELF for stack sets with self-managed permissions.

  • If you are signed in to the management account, specify SELF .
  • If you are signed in to a delegated administrator account, specify DELEGATED_ADMIN . Your Amazon Web Services account must be registered as a delegated administrator in the management account. For more information, see Register a delegated administrator in the CloudFormation User Guide .

Possible values:

  • SELF
  • DELEGATED_ADMIN

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

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 .

Parameters -> (list)

A list of input parameters for a stack set.

(structure)

The Parameter data type.

ParameterKey -> (string)

The key associated with the parameter. If you don't specify a key and value for a particular parameter, CloudFormation uses the default value that's specified in your template.

ParameterValue -> (string)

The input value associated with the parameter.

UsePreviousValue -> (boolean)

During a stack update, use the existing parameter value that the stack is using for a given parameter key. If you specify true , do not specify a parameter value.

ResolvedValue -> (string)

Read-only. The value that corresponds to a SSM parameter key. This field is returned only for ` SSM https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/parameters-section-structure.html#aws-ssm-parameter-types`__ parameter types in the template.

Capabilities -> (list)

The capabilities that are allowed in the stack set. Some stack set templates might include resources that can affect permissions in your Amazon Web Services account—for example, by creating new Identity and Access Management (IAM) users. For more information, see Acknowledging IAM Resources in CloudFormation Templates.

(string)

Tags -> (list)

A list of tags that specify information about the stack set. A maximum number of 50 tags can be specified.

(structure)

The Tag type enables you to specify a key-value pair that can be used to store information about an CloudFormation stack.

For stack sets, contains information about the last completed drift operation performed on the stack set. Information about drift operations currently in progress isn't included.

DriftStatus -> (string)

Status of the stack set's actual configuration compared to its expected template and parameter configuration. A stack set is considered to have drifted if one or more of its stack instances have drifted from their expected template and parameter configuration.

  • DRIFTED : One or more of the stack instances belonging to the stack set stack differs from the expected template and parameter configuration. A stack instance is considered to have drifted if one or more of the resources in the associated stack have drifted.

  • PARTIAL_SUCCESS : The drift detection operation completed without exceeding the failure tolerance for the operation.
  • IN_PROGRESS : The drift detection operation is currently being performed.
  • STOPPED : The user has canceled the drift detection operation.

LastDriftCheckTimestamp -> (timestamp)

Most recent time when CloudFormation performed a drift detection operation on the stack set. This value will be NULL for any stack set on which drift detection hasn't yet been performed.

TotalStackInstancesCount -> (integer)

The total number of stack instances belonging to this stack set.

The total number of stack instances is equal to the total of:

  • Stack instances that match the stack set configuration.

  • Stack instances where the drift detection operation has failed.
  • Stack instances currently being checked for drift.

DriftedStackInstancesCount -> (integer)

InProgressStackInstancesCount -> (integer)

The number of stack instances that are currently being checked for drift.

AutoDeployment -> (structure)

[Service-managed permissions] Describes whether StackSets automatically deploys to Organizations accounts that are added to a target organization or organizational unit (OU).

Enabled -> (boolean)

If set to true , StackSets automatically deploys additional stack instances to Organizations accounts that are added to a target organization or organizational unit (OU) in the specified Regions. If an account is removed from a target organization or OU, StackSets deletes stack instances from the account in the specified Regions.

RetainStacksOnAccountRemoval -> (boolean)

If set to true , stack resources are retained when an account is removed from a target organization or OU. If set to false , stack resources are deleted. Specify only if Enabled is set to True .

ManagedExecution -> (structure)

Describes whether StackSets performs non-conflicting operations concurrently and queues conflicting operations.

Active -> (boolean)

When true , StackSets performs non-conflicting operations concurrently and queues conflicting operations. After conflicting operations finish, StackSets starts queued operations in request order.

Note

If there are already running or queued operations, StackSets queues all incoming operations even if they are non-conflicting.

You can't modify your stack set's execution configuration while there are running or queued operations for that stack set.

When false (default), StackSets performs one operation at a time in request order.
