See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--snapshot-id <value>
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--starting-block-index <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--snapshot-id (string)

The ID of the snapshot from which to get block indexes and block tokens.

--next-token (string)

The token to request the next page of results.

--max-results (integer)

The number of results to return.

--starting-block-index (integer)

The block index from which the list should start. The list in the response will start from this block index or the next valid block index in the snapshot.

--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.

--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.
