Options

--user-name (string)

The name of the user

--filters (list)

Filter to determine the list of users to return.

(structure)

Used to streamline results of a search based on the property being filtered.

Name -> (string)

The property being filtered. For example, UserName.

Values -> (list)

The property values to filter on. For example, "user-123".

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of records to include in the response. If more records exist than the specified MaxResults value, a token is included in the response so that the remaining results can be retrieved.

--next-token (string)

An optional argument to pass in case the total number of records exceeds the value of MaxResults. If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged.

--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 .

To return a list of users

The following describe-users` returns a list of users.

Output

Users -> (list)

A list of users.

(structure)

You create users and assign them specific permissions by using an access string. You assign the users to Access Control Lists aligned with a specific role (administrators, human resources) that are then deployed to one or more MemoryDB clusters.

Name -> (string)

The name of the user

Status -> (string)

Indicates the user status. Can be "active", "modifying" or "deleting".

AccessString -> (string)

Access permissions string used for this user.

ACLNames -> (list)

The names of the Access Control Lists to which the user belongs

(string)

MinimumEngineVersion -> (string)

The minimum engine version supported for the user

Authentication -> (structure)

Denotes whether the user requires a password to authenticate.

Type -> (string)

Indicates whether the user requires a password to authenticate.

PasswordCount -> (integer)

The number of passwords belonging to the user. The maximum is two.

ARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the user.

NextToken -> (string)

An optional argument to pass in case the total number of records exceeds the value of MaxResults. If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged.
