list-stack-sets

Description

Returns summary information about stack sets that are associated with the user.

  • [Self-managed permissions] If you set the CallAs parameter to SELF while signed in to your Amazon Web Services account, ListStackSets returns all self-managed stack sets in your Amazon Web Services account.
  • [Service-managed permissions] If you set the CallAs parameter to SELF while signed in to the organization's management account, ListStackSets returns all stack sets in the management account.
  • [Service-managed permissions] If you set the CallAs parameter to DELEGATED_ADMIN while signed in to your member account, ListStackSets returns all stack sets with service-managed permissions in the management account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

list-stack-sets is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Summaries

Options

--status (string)

The status of the stack sets that you want to get summary information about.

Possible values:

  • ACTIVE
  • DELETED

--call-as (string)

[Service-managed permissions] Specifies whether you are acting as an account administrator in the 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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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 .

To list stack sets

The following list-stack-sets example displays the list of stack sets in the current region and account.

aws cloudformation list-stack-sets

Output:

{
    "Summaries": [
        {
            "StackSetName": "enable-config",
            "StackSetId": "enable-config:296a3360-xmpl-40af-be78-9341e95bf743",
            "Description": "Enable AWS Config",
            "Status": "ACTIVE"
        }
    ]
}

Output

Summaries -> (list)

A list of StackSetSummary structures that contain information about the user's stack sets.

(structure)

The structures that contain summary information about the specified stack set.

StackSetName -> (string)

The name of the stack set.

StackSetId -> (string)

The ID of the stack set.

Description -> (string)

A description of the stack set that you specify when the stack set is created or updated.

Status -> (string)

The status of the stack set.

AutoDeployment -> (structure)

[Service-managed permissions] Describes whether StackSets automatically deploys to Organizations accounts that are added to a target 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 .

PermissionModel -> (string)

Describes how the IAM roles required for stack set operations are created.

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.
  • NOT_CHECKED : CloudFormation hasn't checked the stack set for drift.
  • IN_SYNC : All the stack instances belonging to the stack set stack match from the expected template and parameter configuration.
  • UNKNOWN : This value is reserved for future use.

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.

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.

NextToken -> (string)

If the request doesn't return all of the remaining results, NextToken is set to a token. To retrieve the next set of results, call ListStackInstances again and assign that token to the request object's NextToken parameter. If the request returns all results, NextToken is set to null .
