[ aws . deploy ]



Gets a list of names for one or more on-premises instances.

Unless otherwise specified, both registered and deregistered on-premises instance names are listed. To list only registered or deregistered on-premises instance names, use the registration status parameter.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-on-premises-instances 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: instanceNames


[--registration-status <value>]
[--tag-filters <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--registration-status (string)

The registration status of the on-premises instances:

  • Deregistered : Include deregistered on-premises instances in the resulting list.

  • Registered : Include registered on-premises instances in the resulting list.

Possible values:

  • Registered

  • Deregistered

--tag-filters (list)

The on-premises instance tags that are used to restrict the on-premises instance names returned.


Information about an on-premises instance tag filter.

Key -> (string)

The on-premises instance tag filter key.

Value -> (string)

The on-premises instance tag filter value.

Type -> (string)

The on-premises instance tag filter type:

  • KEY_ONLY: Key only.

  • VALUE_ONLY: Value only.

  • KEY_AND_VALUE: Key and value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string,Type=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string",

--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 .

--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.


To get information about one or more on-premises instances

The following list-on-premises-instances example retrieves a list of available on-premises instance names for instances that are registered in AWS CodeDeploy and also have the specified on-premises instance tag associated in AWS CodeDeploy with the instance.

aws deploy list-on-premises-instances \
    --registration-status Registered \
    --tag-filters Key=Name,Value=CodeDeployDemo-OnPrem,Type=KEY_AND_VALUE


    "instanceNames": [


instanceNames -> (list)

The list of matching on-premises instance names.


nextToken -> (string)

If a large amount of information is returned, an identifier is also returned. It can be used in a subsequent list on-premises instances call to return the next set of on-premises instances in the list.
