[ aws . events ]



Lists your archives. You can either list all the archives or you can provide a prefix to match to the archive names. Filter parameters are exclusive.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


[--name-prefix <value>]
[--event-source-arn <value>]
[--state <value>]
[--next-token <value>]
[--limit <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name-prefix (string)

A name prefix to filter the archives returned. Only archives with name that match the prefix are returned.

--event-source-arn (string)

The ARN of the event source associated with the archive.

--state (string)

The state of the archive.

Possible values:







--next-token (string)

The token returned by a previous call to retrieve the next set of results.

--limit (integer)

The maximum number of results to return.

--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.
