Describes your VPC endpoints. The default is to describe all your VPC endpoints. Alternatively, you can specify specific VPC endpoint IDs or filter the results to include only the VPC endpoints that match specific criteria.

Request Syntax

response = client.describe_vpc_endpoints(
            'Name': 'string',
            'Values': [
  • 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.

  • VpcEndpointIds (list) –

    The IDs of the VPC endpoints.

    • (string) –

  • Filters (list) –

    The filters.

    • ip-address-type - The IP address type ( ipv4 | ipv6).

    • service-name - The name of the service.

    • tag:<key> - The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Use the tag key in the filter name and the tag value as the filter value. For example, to find all resources that have a tag with the key Owner and the value TeamA, specify tag:Owner for the filter name and TeamA for the filter value.

    • tag-key - The key of a tag assigned to the resource. Use this filter to find all resources assigned a tag with a specific key, regardless of the tag value.

    • vpc-id - The ID of the VPC in which the endpoint resides.

    • vpc-endpoint-id - The ID of the endpoint.

    • vpc-endpoint-state - The state of the endpoint ( pendingAcceptance | pending | available | deleting | deleted | rejected | failed).

    • vpc-endpoint-type - The type of VPC endpoint ( Interface | Gateway | GatewayLoadBalancer).

    • (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) –

  • MaxResults (integer) –

    The maximum number of items to return for this request. The request returns a token that you can specify in a subsequent call to get the next set of results.

    Constraint: If the value is greater than 1,000, we return only 1,000 items.

  • NextToken (string) – The token for the next set of items to return. (You received this token from a prior call.)
