Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the DataSync agent to describe.
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
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.
Turn on debug logging.
Override command’s default URL with the given URL.
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.
Disable automatic pagination.
The formatting style for command output.
A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.
Use a specific profile from your credential file.
The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.
Display the version of this tool.
Turn on/off color output.
Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.
The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.
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.
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.
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
Disable cli pager for output.
Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
AgentArn -> (string)
The ARN of the agent.
Name -> (string)
The name of the agent.
Status -> (string)
The status of the agent. If the status is ONLINE, then the agent is configured properly and is available to use. The Running status is the normal running status for an agent. If the status is OFFLINE, the agent’s VM is turned off or the agent is in an unhealthy state. When the issue that caused the unhealthy state is resolved, the agent returns to ONLINE status.
LastConnectionTime -> (timestamp)
The time that the agent last connected to DataSync.
CreationTime -> (timestamp)
The time that the agent was activated (that is, created in your account).
EndpointType -> (string)
The type of endpoint that your agent is connected to. If the endpoint is a VPC endpoint, the agent is not accessible over the public internet.
PrivateLinkConfig -> (structure)
The subnet and the security group that DataSync used to access a VPC endpoint.
VpcEndpointId -> (string)Specifies the ID of the VPC endpoint that your agent connects to.
PrivateLinkEndpoint -> (string)Specifies the VPC endpoint provided by Amazon Web Services PrivateLink that your agent connects to.
SubnetArns -> (list)
Specifies the ARN of the subnet where your VPC endpoint is located. You can only specify one ARN.
SecurityGroupArns -> (list)
Specifies the Amazon Resource Names (ARN) of the security group that provides DataSync access to your VPC endpoint. You can only specify one ARN.
