--instance-id <value>
--type-name <value>
[--filters <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--max-results <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--instance-id (string)

The instance ID for which you want inventory information.

--type-name (string)

The type of inventory item for which you want information.

--filters (list)

One or more filters. Use a filter to return a more specific list of results.


One or more filters. Use a filter to return a more specific list of results.

Key -> (string)

The name of the filter key.

Values -> (list)

Inventory filter values. Example: inventory filter where instance IDs are specified as values Key=AWS:InstanceInformation.InstanceId,Values= i-a12b3c4d5e6g, i-1a2b3c4d5e6,Type=Equal


Type -> (string)

The type of filter.


The Exists filter must be used with aggregators. For more information, see Aggregating inventory data in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide .

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Values=string,string,Type=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Values": ["string", ...],
    "Type": "Equal"|"NotEqual"|"BeginWith"|"LessThan"|"GreaterThan"|"Exists"

--next-token (string)

The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a previous call.)

--max-results (integer)

The maximum number of items to return for this call. The call also returns a token that you can specify in a subsequent call to get the next set of results.

--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.
