describe-backups

Description

Gets information about backups of AWS CloudHSM clusters.

This is a paginated operation, which means that each response might contain only a subset of all the backups. When the response contains only a subset of backups, it includes a NextToken value. Use this value in a subsequent DescribeBackups request to get more backups. When you receive a response with no NextToken (or an empty or null value), that means there are no more backups to get.

See also: AWS API Documentation

describe-backups 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: Backups

Options

--filters (map)

One or more filters to limit the items returned in the response.

Use the backupIds filter to return only the specified backups. Specify backups by their backup identifier (ID).

Use the sourceBackupIds filter to return only the backups created from a source backup. The sourceBackupID of a source backup is returned by the CopyBackupToRegion operation.

Use the clusterIds filter to return only the backups for the specified clusters. Specify clusters by their cluster identifier (ID).

Use the states filter to return only backups that match the specified state.

Use the neverExpires filter to return backups filtered by the value in the neverExpires parameter. True returns all backups exempt from the backup retention policy. False returns all backups with a backup retention policy defined at the cluster.

key -> (string)

value -> (list)

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,string,KeyName2=string,string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": ["string", ...]
  ...}

--sort-ascending | --no-sort-ascending (boolean)

Designates whether or not to sort the return backups by ascending chronological order of generation.

--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.

Output

Backups -> (list)

A list of backups.

(structure)

Contains information about a backup of an AWS CloudHSM cluster. All backup objects contain the BackupId , BackupState , ClusterId , and CreateTimestamp parameters. Backups that were copied into a destination region additionally contain the CopyTimestamp , SourceBackup , SourceCluster , and SourceRegion parameters. A backup that is pending deletion will include the DeleteTimestamp parameter.

BackupId -> (string)

The identifier (ID) of the backup.

BackupState -> (string)

The state of the backup.

ClusterId -> (string)

The identifier (ID) of the cluster that was backed up.

CreateTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the backup was created.

CopyTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the backup was copied from a source backup.

NeverExpires -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the service should exempt a backup from the retention policy for the cluster. True exempts a backup from the retention policy. False means the service applies the backup retention policy defined at the cluster.

SourceRegion -> (string)

The AWS Region that contains the source backup from which the new backup was copied.

SourceBackup -> (string)

The identifier (ID) of the source backup from which the new backup was copied.

SourceCluster -> (string)

The identifier (ID) of the cluster containing the source backup from which the new backup was copied.

DeleteTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the backup will be permanently deleted.

TagList -> (list)

The list of tags for the backup.

(structure)

Contains a tag. A tag is a key-value pair.

Key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

NextToken -> (string)

An opaque string that indicates that the response contains only a subset of backups. Use this value in a subsequent DescribeBackups request to get more backups.
