[ aws . datasync ]



Returns a list of agents owned by an AWS account in the AWS Region specified in the request. The returned list is ordered by agent Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

By default, this operation returns a maximum of 100 agents. This operation supports pagination that enables you to optionally reduce the number of agents returned in a response.

If you have more agents than are returned in a response (that is, the response returns only a truncated list of your agents), the response contains a marker that you can specify in your next request to fetch the next page of agents.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-agents 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: Agents


[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


Agents -> (list)

A list of agents in your account.


Represents a single entry in a list of agents. AgentListEntry returns an array that contains a list of agents when the ListAgents operation is called.

AgentArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the agent.

Name -> (string)

The name of the agent.

Status -> (string)

The status of the agent.

NextToken -> (string)

An opaque string that indicates the position at which to begin returning the next list of agents.
