Describe an instance’s RAID arrays.


This call accepts only one resource-identifying parameter.

Required Permissions : To use this action, an IAM user must have a Show, Deploy, or Manage permissions level for the stack, or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information about user permissions, see Managing User Permissions .

[--instance-id <value>]
[--stack-id <value>]
[--raid-array-ids <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--instance-id (string)

The instance ID. If you use this parameter, DescribeRaidArrays returns descriptions of the RAID arrays associated with the specified instance.

--stack-id (string)

The stack ID.

--raid-array-ids (list)

An array of RAID array IDs. If you use this parameter, DescribeRaidArrays returns descriptions of the specified arrays. Otherwise, it returns a description of every array.



"string" "string" ...

--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.

To describe RAID arrays

The following example describes the RAID arrays attached to the instances in a specified stack.

aws opsworks --region us-east-1 describe-raid-arrays --stack-id d72553d4-8727-448c-9b00-f024f0ba1b06

Output: The following is the output for a stack with one RAID array.

  "RaidArrays": [
      "StackId": "d72553d4-8727-448c-9b00-f024f0ba1b06",
      "AvailabilityZone": "us-west-2a",
      "Name": "Created for php-app1",
      "NumberOfDisks": 2,
      "InstanceId": "9f14adbc-ced5-43b6-bf01-e7d0db6cf2f7",
      "RaidLevel": 0,
      "VolumeType": "standard",
      "RaidArrayId": "f2d4e470-5972-4676-b1b8-bae41ec3e51c",
      "Device": "/dev/md0",
      "MountPoint": "/mnt/workspace",
      "CreatedAt": "2015-02-26T23:53:09+00:00",
      "Size": 100
