[ aws . honeycode ]



The GetScreenData API allows retrieval of data from a screen in a Honeycode app. The API allows setting local variables in the screen to filter, sort or otherwise affect what will be displayed on the screen.

--workbook-id (string)

The ID of the workbook that contains the screen.

--app-id (string)

The ID of the app that contains the screen.

--screen-id (string)

The ID of the screen.

--variables (map)

Variables are optional and are needed only if the screen requires them to render correctly. Variables are specified as a map where the key is the name of the variable as defined on the screen. The value is an object which currently has only one property, rawValue, which holds the value of the variable to be passed to the screen.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

The input variables to the app to be used by the InvokeScreenAutomation action request.

rawValue -> (string)

Raw value of the variable.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": {
      "rawValue": "string"

--max-results (integer)

The number of results to be returned on a single page. Specify a number between 1 and 100. The maximum value is 100.

This parameter is optional. If you don’t specify this parameter, the default page size is 100.

--next-token (string)

This parameter is optional. If a nextToken is not specified, the API returns the first page of data.

Pagination tokens expire after 1 hour. If you use a token that was returned more than an hour back, the API will throw ValidationException.

--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.


results -> (map)

A map of all the rows on the screen keyed by block name.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

ResultSet contains the results of the request for a single block or list defined on the screen.

headers -> (list)

List of headers for all the data cells in the block. The header identifies the name and default format of the data cell. Data cells appear in the same order in all rows as defined in the header. The names and formats are not repeated in the rows. If a particular row does not have a value for a data cell, a blank value is used.

For example, a task list that displays the task name, due date and assigned person might have headers [ { “name”: “Task Name”}, {“name”: “Due Date”, “format”: “DATE”}, {“name”: “Assigned”, “format”: “CONTACT”} ]. Every row in the result will have the task name as the first item, due date as the second item and assigned person as the third item. If a particular task does not have a due date, that row will still have a blank value in the second element and the assigned person will still be in the third element.


Metadata for column in the table.

name -> (string)

The name of the column.

format -> (string)

The format of the column.

rows -> (list)

List of rows returned by the request. Each row has a row Id and a list of data cells in that row. The data cells will be present in the same order as they are defined in the header.


A single row in the ResultSet.

rowId -> (string)

The ID for a particular row.

dataItems -> (list)

List of all the data cells in a row.


The data in a particular data cell defined on the screen.

overrideFormat -> (string)

The overrideFormat is optional and is specified only if a particular row of data has a different format for the data than the default format defined on the screen or the table.

rawValue -> (string)

The raw value of the data. e.g. jsmith@example.com

formattedValue -> (string)

The formatted value of the data. e.g. John Smith.

workbookCursor -> (long)

Indicates the cursor of the workbook at which the data returned by this workbook is read. Workbook cursor keeps increasing with every update and the increments are not sequential.

nextToken -> (string)

Provides the pagination token to load the next page if there are more results matching the request. If a pagination token is not present in the response, it means that all data matching the query has been loaded.
