This is outstanding, but no glacier??? need that the most!

Mathias Leppich

Great stuff! But it would be great if the new command line tools would provide an output option that matches the output of the old command line tools. See GitHub Issue:


code samples are not viewable on iphone :/


Thanks, aws + jq combo is a killer!

Vitaly Peressada

Can you give an example of using multiple filters? Documentation has an example of single filter with multiple values but I need two filters
Key value pairs, where values are separated by commas.
--filters Name=string1,Values=string1,string2

Below doesn't work
aws ec2 --region=us-east-1 describe-instances --filters Name=group-name,Values=app;Name=instance-state-code,Values=16 | jq '.Reservations[].Instances[] | {PublicDnsName}'

I was waiting for this for so long! Thanks!

Seongchan Moon

Try separating the filters by a space instead of semicolon like this:

aws ec2 describe-instances --filters Name=group-name,Values=app Name=instance-state-code,Values=16


I was waiting for json formatted output for so long. The earlier CLI output was so difficult to parse. Now I can parse the Json the way I want. Beside, no need to setup various CLIs for various services. One CLI for ALL. thanks.


How do I specify a list?

aws elasticbeanstalk --options-settings namespace=aws:ec2:vpc,option_name=DBSubnets,value=subnet-756e791b,subnet-7d6e7913
