[ aws . opsworks ]



Describes Amazon ECS clusters that are registered with a stack. If you specify only a stack ID, you can use the MaxResults and NextToken parameters to paginate the response. However, AWS OpsWorks Stacks currently supports only one cluster per layer, so the result set has a maximum of one element.

Required Permissions : To use this action, an IAM user must have a Show, Deploy, or Manage permissions level for the stack or an attached policy that explicitly grants permission. For more information about user permissions, see Managing User Permissions .

This call accepts only one resource-identifying parameter.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

describe-ecs-clusters 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: EcsClusters


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


--ecs-cluster-arns (list)

A list of ARNs, one for each cluster to be described.



"string" "string" ...

--stack-id (string)

A stack ID. DescribeEcsClusters returns a description of the cluster that is registered with the stack.

--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.


EcsClusters -> (list)

A list of EcsCluster objects containing the cluster descriptions.


Describes a registered Amazon ECS cluster.

EcsClusterArn -> (string)

The cluster’s ARN.

EcsClusterName -> (string)

The cluster name.

StackId -> (string)

The stack ID.

RegisteredAt -> (string)

The time and date that the cluster was registered with the stack.

NextToken -> (string)

If a paginated request does not return all of the remaining results, this parameter is set to a token that you can assign to the request object’s NextToken parameter to retrieve the next set of results. If the previous paginated request returned all of the remaining results, this parameter is set to null .
