  • TransitGatewayRouteTableId (string) –


    The ID of the transit gateway route table.

  • Filters (list) –


    One or more filters. The possible values are:

    • attachment.transit-gateway-attachment-id- The id of the transit gateway attachment.

    • attachment.resource-id - The resource id of the transit gateway attachment.

    • attachment.resource-type - The attachment resource type. Valid values are vpc | vpn | direct-connect-gateway | peering | connect.

    • prefix-list-id - The ID of the prefix list.

    • route-search.exact-match - The exact match of the specified filter.

    • route-search.longest-prefix-match - The longest prefix that matches the route.

    • route-search.subnet-of-match - The routes with a subnet that match the specified CIDR filter.

    • route-search.supernet-of-match - The routes with a CIDR that encompass the CIDR filter. For example, if you have and routes in your route table and you specify supernet-of-match as, then the result returns

    • state - The state of the route ( active | blackhole).

    • type - The type of route ( propagated | static).

    • (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 routes to return. If a value is not provided, the default is 1000.

  • 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.
