Provides a list of steps for the cluster in reverse order unless you specify
stepIds with the request or filter by
StepStates . You can specify a maximum of 10
stepIDs . The CLI automatically paginates results to return a list greater than 50 steps. To return more than 50 steps using the CLI, specify a
Marker , which is a pagination token that indicates the next set of steps to retrieve.
See also: AWS API Documentation
list-steps 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
--output text and the
--query argument on a paginated response, the
--query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions:
list-steps --cluster-id <value> [--step-states <value>] [--step-ids <value>] [--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml] [--starting-token <value>] [--max-items <value>] [--generate-cli-skeleton <value>] [--debug] [--endpoint-url <value>] [--no-verify-ssl] [--no-paginate] [--output <value>] [--query <value>] [--profile <value>] [--region <value>] [--version <value>] [--color <value>] [--no-sign-request] [--ca-bundle <value>] [--cli-read-timeout <value>] [--cli-connect-timeout <value>] [--cli-binary-format <value>] [--no-cli-pager] [--cli-auto-prompt] [--no-cli-auto-prompt]
The identifier of the cluster for which to list the steps.
The filter to limit the step list based on certain states.
"string" "string" ... Where valid values are: PENDING CANCEL_PENDING RUNNING COMPLETED CANCELLED FAILED INTERRUPTED
The filter to limit the step list based on the identifier of the steps. You can specify a maximum of ten Step IDs. The character constraint applies to the overall length of the array.
"string" "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
A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the
NextTokenfrom a previously truncated response.
For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .
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
NextTokenis provided in the command’s output. To resume pagination, provide the
NextTokenvalue in the
starting-tokenargument of a subsequent command. Do not use the
NextTokenresponse element directly outside of the AWS CLI.
For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .
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.
To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.
Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .
The following command lists all of the steps in a cluster with the cluster ID
aws emr list-steps --cluster-id j-3SD91U2E1L2QX
Steps -> (list)
The filtered list of steps for the cluster.
The summary of the cluster step.
Id -> (string)The identifier of the cluster step.
Name -> (string)The name of the cluster step.
Config -> (structure)
The Hadoop job configuration of the cluster step.
Jar -> (string)The path to the JAR file that runs during the step.
Properties -> (map)
The list of Java properties that are set when the step runs. You can use these properties to pass key-value pairs to your main function.
key -> (string)
value -> (string)
MainClass -> (string)The name of the main class in the specified Java file. If not specified, the JAR file should specify a main class in its manifest file.
Args -> (list)
The list of command line arguments to pass to the JAR file’s main function for execution.
ActionOnFailure -> (string)The action to take when the cluster step fails. Possible values are TERMINATE_CLUSTER, CANCEL_AND_WAIT, and CONTINUE. TERMINATE_JOB_FLOW is available for backward compatibility.
Status -> (structure)
The current execution status details of the cluster step.
State -> (string)The execution state of the cluster step.
StateChangeReason -> (structure)
The reason for the step execution status change.
Code -> (string)The programmable code for the state change reason. Note: Currently, the service provides no code for the state change.
Message -> (string)The descriptive message for the state change reason.
FailureDetails -> (structure)
The details for the step failure including reason, message, and log file path where the root cause was identified.
Reason -> (string)The reason for the step failure. In the case where the service cannot successfully determine the root cause of the failure, it returns “Unknown Error” as a reason.
Message -> (string)The descriptive message including the error the Amazon EMR service has identified as the cause of step failure. This is text from an error log that describes the root cause of the failure.
LogFile -> (string)The path to the log file where the step failure root cause was originally recorded.
Timeline -> (structure)
The timeline of the cluster step status over time.
CreationDateTime -> (timestamp)The date and time when the cluster step was created.
StartDateTime -> (timestamp)The date and time when the cluster step execution started.
EndDateTime -> (timestamp)The date and time when the cluster step execution completed or failed.
Marker -> (string)
The maximum number of steps that a single
ListStepsaction returns is 50. To return a longer list of steps, use multiple
ListStepsactions along with the
Markerparameter, which is a pagination token that indicates the next set of results to retrieve.
