[ aws . discovery ]



Begins the export of discovered data to an S3 bucket.

If you specify agentIds in a filter, the task exports up to 72 hours of detailed data collected by the identified Application Discovery Agent, including network, process, and performance details. A time range for exported agent data may be set by using startTime and endTime . Export of detailed agent data is limited to five concurrently running exports.

If you do not include an agentIds filter, summary data is exported that includes both Amazon Web Services Agentless Discovery Connector data and summary data from Amazon Web Services Discovery Agents. Export of summary data is limited to two exports per day.

--export-data-format (list)

The file format for the returned export data. Default value is CSV . Note: The GRAPHML option has been deprecated.



"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:

--filters (list)

If a filter is present, it selects the single agentId of the Application Discovery Agent for which data is exported. The agentId can be found in the results of the DescribeAgents API or CLI. If no filter is present, startTime and endTime are ignored and exported data includes both Agentless Discovery Connector data and summary data from Application Discovery agents.


Used to select which agent’s data is to be exported. A single agent ID may be selected for export using the StartExportTask action.

name -> (string)

A single ExportFilter name. Supported filters: agentIds .

values -> (list)

A single agent ID for a Discovery Agent. An agent ID can be found using the DescribeAgents action. Typically an ADS agent ID is in the form o-0123456789abcdef0 .


condition -> (string)

Supported condition: EQUALS

Shorthand Syntax:

name=string,values=string,string,condition=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "name": "string",
    "values": ["string", ...],
    "condition": "string"

--start-time (timestamp)

The start timestamp for exported data from the single Application Discovery Agent selected in the filters. If no value is specified, data is exported starting from the first data collected by the agent.

--end-time (timestamp)

The end timestamp for exported data from the single Application Discovery Agent selected in the filters. If no value is specified, exported data includes the most recent data collected by the agent.

--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.


exportId -> (string)

A unique identifier used to query the status of an export request.
