[ aws . license-manager ]



Lists all license usage records for a license configuration, displaying license consumption details by resource at a selected point in time. Use this action to audit the current license consumption for any license inventory and configuration.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

list-usage-for-license-configuration 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: LicenseConfigurationUsageList


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


--license-configuration-arn (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the license configuration.

--filters (list)

Filters to scope the results. The following filters and logical operators are supported:

  • resourceArn - The ARN of the license configuration resource. Logical operators are EQUALS | NOT_EQUALS .

  • resourceType - The resource type (EC2_INSTANCE | EC2_HOST | EC2_AMI | SYSTEMS_MANAGER_MANAGED_INSTANCE). Logical operators are EQUALS | NOT_EQUALS .

  • resourceAccount - The ID of the account that owns the resource. Logical operators are EQUALS | NOT_EQUALS .


A filter name and value pair that is used to return more specific results from a describe operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as tags, attributes, or IDs.

Name -> (string)

Name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

Values -> (list)

Filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive.


Shorthand Syntax:

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

JSON Syntax:

    "Name": "string",
    "Values": ["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 .

--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.


To list the licenses in use for a license configuration

The following list-usage-for-license-configuration example lists information about the resources using licenses for the specified license configuration. For example, if the license type is vCPU, any instances consume one license per vCPU.

aws license-manager list-usage-for-license-configuration \
    --license-configuration-arn arn:aws:license-manager:us-west-2:123456789012:license-configuration:lic-38b658717b87478aaa7c00883EXAMPLE

            "ResourceType": "EC2_INSTANCE",
