Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • AuthenticationMethods (list) –

      An array list of authentication methods for the specified application.

      • (dict) –

        A structure that describes an authentication method and its type.

        • AuthenticationMethod (dict) –

          A structure that describes an authentication method. The contents of this structure is determined by the AuthenticationMethodType.


          This is a Tagged Union structure. Only one of the following top level keys will be set: Iam. If a client receives an unknown member it will set SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER as the top level key, which maps to the name or tag of the unknown member. The structure of SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER is as follows:

          'SDK_UNKNOWN_MEMBER': {'name': 'UnknownMemberName'}
          • Iam (dict) –

            A structure that describes details for IAM authentication.

            • ActorPolicy (document) –

              An IAM policy document in JSON.

        • AuthenticationMethodType (string) –

          The type of authentication that is used by this method.

    • NextToken (string) –

      If present, this value indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null. This indicates that this is the last page of results.
