[ aws . connect ]



Gets details and status of a phone number that’s claimed to your Amazon Connect instance or traffic distribution group.


If the number is claimed to a traffic distribution group, and you are calling in the Amazon Web Services Region where the traffic distribution group was created, you can use either a phone number ARN or UUID value for the PhoneNumberId URI request parameter. However, if the number is claimed to a traffic distribution group and you are calling this API in the alternate Amazon Web Services Region associated with the traffic distribution group, you must provide a full phone number ARN. If a UUID is provided in this scenario, you will receive a ResourceNotFoundException .

--phone-number-id (string)

A unique identifier for the phone number.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.


ClaimedPhoneNumberSummary -> (structure)

Information about a phone number that’s been claimed to your Amazon Connect instance or traffic distribution group.

PhoneNumberId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the phone number.

PhoneNumberArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the phone number.

PhoneNumber -> (string)

The phone number. Phone numbers are formatted [+] [country code] [subscriber number including area code] .

PhoneNumberCountryCode -> (string)

The ISO country code.

PhoneNumberType -> (string)

The type of phone number.

PhoneNumberDescription -> (string)

The description of the phone number.

TargetArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for Amazon Connect instances or traffic distribution groups that phone numbers are claimed to.

Tags -> (map)

The tags used to organize, track, or control access for this resource. For example, { “tags”: {“key1”:”value1”, “key2”:”value2”} }.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

PhoneNumberStatus -> (structure)

The status of the phone number.

  • CLAIMED means the previous ClaimedPhoneNumber or UpdatePhoneNumber operation succeeded.
  • IN_PROGRESS means a ClaimedPhoneNumber or UpdatePhoneNumber operation is still in progress and has not yet completed. You can call DescribePhoneNumber at a later time to verify if the previous operation has completed.
  • FAILED indicates that the previous ClaimedPhoneNumber or UpdatePhoneNumber operation has failed. It will include a message indicating the failure reason. A common reason for a failure may be that the TargetArn value you are claiming or updating a phone number to has reached its limit of total claimed numbers. If you received a FAILED status from a ClaimPhoneNumber API call, you have one day to retry claiming the phone number before the number is released back to the inventory for other customers to claim.


You will not be billed for the phone number during the 1-day period if number claiming fails.

Status -> (string)

The status.

Message -> (string)
