  • ResourceQuery (dict) –


    The search query, using the same formats that are supported for resource group definition. For more information, see CreateGroup.

    • Type (string) – [REQUIRED]

      The type of the query to perform. This can have one of two values:

      • CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: Specifies that you want the group to contain the members of an CloudFormation stack. The Query contains a StackIdentifier element with an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.

      • TAG_FILTERS_1_0: Specifies that you want the group to include resource that have tags that match the query.

    • Query (string) – [REQUIRED]

      The query that defines a group or a search. The contents depends on the value of the Type element.

      • ResourceTypeFilters – Applies to all ResourceQuery objects of either Type. This element contains one of the following two items:

        • The value AWS::AllSupported. This causes the ResourceQuery to match resources of any resource type that also match the query.

        • A list (a JSON array) of resource type identifiers that limit the query to only resources of the specified types. For the complete list of resource types that you can use in the array value for ResourceTypeFilters, see Resources you can use with Resource Groups and Tag Editor in the Resource Groups User Guide.

      Example: "ResourceTypeFilters": ["AWS::AllSupported"] or "ResourceTypeFilters": ["AWS::EC2::Instance", "AWS::S3::Bucket"]

      • TagFilters – applicable only if Type = TAG_FILTERS_1_0. The Query contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the GetResources operation, but uses only the ResourceTypeFilters and TagFilters fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches any of the specified values. For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version, with two values each: [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}] The results of this resource query could include the following.

        • An Amazon EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"}, and {"Version":"2"}

        • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"}, and {"Version":"1"}

      The resource query results would not include the following items in the results, however.

      • An Amazon EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"}. The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.

      • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"} The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

      Example: "TagFilters": [ { "Key": "Stage", "Values": [ "Gamma", "Beta" ] }

      • StackIdentifier – applicable only if Type = CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0. The value of this parameter is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CloudFormation stack whose resources you want included in the group.

  • PaginationConfig (dict) –

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) –

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) –

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) –

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.

Return type:
