Request Syntax

response = client.list_account_aliases(
  • Marker (string) -- Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.
  • MaxItems (integer) --

    Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true .

    If you do not include this parameter, the number of items defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true , and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Return type



Response Syntax

    'AccountAliases': [
    'IsTruncated': True|False,
    'Marker': 'string'

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    Contains the response to a successful ListAccountAliases request.

    • AccountAliases (list) --

      A list of aliases associated with the account. Amazon Web Services supports only one alias per account.

      • (string) --
    • IsTruncated (boolean) --

      A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all your results.

    • Marker (string) --

      When IsTruncated is true , this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.


  • IAM.Client.exceptions.ServiceFailureException
