Request Syntax

response = client.list_associated_assets(
  • assetId (string) --


    The ID of the asset to query.

  • hierarchyId (string) --

    The ID of the hierarchy by which child assets are associated to the asset. To find a hierarchy ID, use the DescribeAsset or DescribeAssetModel operations. This parameter is required if you choose CHILD for traversalDirection .

    For more information, see Asset hierarchies in the IoT SiteWise User Guide .

  • traversalDirection (string) --

    The direction to list associated assets. Choose one of the following options:

    • CHILD – The list includes all child assets associated to the asset. The hierarchyId parameter is required if you choose CHILD .
    • PARENT – The list includes the asset's parent asset.

    Default: CHILD

  • nextToken (string) -- The token to be used for the next set of paginated results.
  • maxResults (integer) --

    The maximum number of results to return for each paginated request.

    Default: 50
