Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • ProvisioningArtifactDetail (dict) –

      Information about the provisioning artifact.

      • Id (string) –

        The identifier of the provisioning artifact.

      • Name (string) –

        The name of the provisioning artifact.

        • CLOUD_FORMATION_TEMPLATE - CloudFormation template

        • TERRAFORM_OPEN_SOURCE - Terraform Open Source configuration file

        • TERRAFORM_CLOUD - Terraform Cloud configuration file

        • EXTERNAL - External configuration file

      • CreatedTime (datetime) –

        The UTC time stamp of the creation time.

      • Active (boolean) –

        Indicates whether the product version is active.

      • Guidance (string) –

        Information set by the administrator to provide guidance to end users about which provisioning artifacts to use.

      • SourceRevision (string) –

        Specifies the revision of the external artifact that was used to automatically sync the Service Catalog product and create the provisioning artifact. Service Catalog includes this response parameter as a high level field to the existing ProvisioningArtifactDetail type, which is returned as part of the response for CreateProduct, UpdateProduct, DescribeProductAsAdmin, DescribeProvisioningArtifact, ListProvisioningArtifact, and UpdateProvisioningArticat APIs.

        This field only exists for Repo-Synced products.

    • Info (dict) –

      The URL of the CloudFormation template in Amazon S3 or GitHub in JSON format.

      • (string) –

        • (string) –

    • Status (string) –

      The status of the current request.

    • ProvisioningArtifactParameters (list) –

      Information about the parameters used to provision the product.

      • (dict) –

        Information about a parameter used to provision a product.

        • ParameterKey (string) –

          The parameter key.

        • DefaultValue (string) –

          The default value.

        • ParameterType (string) –

          The parameter type.

        • IsNoEcho (boolean) –

          If this value is true, the value for this parameter is obfuscated from view when the parameter is retrieved. This parameter is used to hide sensitive information.

        • Description (string) –

          The description of the parameter.

        • ParameterConstraints (dict) –

          Constraints that the administrator has put on a parameter.

          • AllowedValues (list) –

            The values that the administrator has allowed for the parameter.

            • (string) –

          • AllowedPattern (string) –

            A regular expression that represents the patterns that allow for String types. The pattern must match the entire parameter value provided.

          • ConstraintDescription (string) –

            A string that explains a constraint when the constraint is violated. For example, without a constraint description, a parameter that has an allowed pattern of [A-Za-z0-9]+ displays the following error message when the user specifies an invalid value:

            Malformed input-Parameter MyParameter must match pattern [A-Za-z0-9]+

            By adding a constraint description, such as must only contain letters (uppercase and lowercase) and numbers, you can display the following customized error message:

            Malformed input-Parameter MyParameter must only contain uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers.

          • MaxLength (string) –

            An integer value that determines the largest number of characters you want to allow for String types.

          • MinLength (string) –

            An integer value that determines the smallest number of characters you want to allow for String types.

          • MaxValue (string) –

            A numeric value that determines the largest numeric value you want to allow for Number types.

          • MinValue (string) –

            A numeric value that determines the smallest numeric value you want to allow for Number types.
