The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the SAML provider resource object in IAM to get information about.

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.
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 .
To retrieve the SAML provider metadocument
This example retrieves the details about the SAML 2.0 provider whose ARM is
The response includes the metadata document that you got from the identity provider to create the AWS SAML provider entity as well
as the creation and expiration dates:
aws iam get-saml-provider --saml-provider-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:saml-provider/SAMLADFS
For more information, see Using SAML Providers in the Using IAM guide.
SAMLMetadataDocument -> (string)
The XML metadata document that includes information about an identity provider.
CreateDate -> (timestamp)
The date and time when the SAML provider was created.
ValidUntil -> (timestamp)
The expiration date and time for the SAML provider.
Tags -> (list)
A list of tags that are attached to the specified IAM SAML provider. The returned list of tags is sorted by tag key. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide .
A structure that represents user-provided metadata that can be associated with an IAM resource. For more information about tagging, see Tagging IAM resources in the IAM User Guide .
Key -> (string)The key name that can be used to look up or retrieve the associated value. For example,
Cost Centerare common choices.
Value -> (string)
The value associated with this tag. For example, tags with a key name of
Departmentcould have values such as
Support. Tags with a key name of
Cost Centermight have values that consist of the number associated with the different cost centers in your company. Typically, many resources have tags with the same key name but with different values.
NoteAmazon Web Services always interprets the tag
Valueas a single string. If you need to store an array, you can store comma-separated values in the string. However, you must interpret the value in your code.
