Request Syntax

response = client.describe_client_vpn_connections(
            'Name': 'string',
            'Values': [
  • ClientVpnEndpointId (string) –


    The ID of the Client VPN endpoint.

  • Filters (list) –

    One or more filters. Filter names and values are case-sensitive.

    • connection-id - The ID of the connection.

    • username - For Active Directory client authentication, the user name of the client who established the client connection.

    • (dict) –

      A filter name and value pair that is used to return a more specific list of results from a describe operation. Filters can be used to match a set of resources by specific criteria, such as tags, attributes, or IDs.

      If you specify multiple filters, the filters are joined with an AND, and the request returns only results that match all of the specified filters.

      • Name (string) –

        The name of the filter. Filter names are case-sensitive.

      • Values (list) –

        The filter values. Filter values are case-sensitive. If you specify multiple values for a filter, the values are joined with an OR, and the request returns all results that match any of the specified values.

        • (string) –

  • NextToken (string) – The token to retrieve the next page of results.

  • MaxResults (integer) – The maximum number of results to return for the request in a single page. The remaining results can be seen by sending another request with the nextToken value.

  • DryRun (boolean) – Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation. Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation.
