Main.Resource_Explorer_2.associate_default_viewMethod
associate_default_view(view_arn)
associate_default_view(view_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Sets the specified view as the default for the Amazon Web Services Region in which you call this operation. When a user performs a Search that doesn't explicitly specify which view to use, then Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer automatically chooses this default view for searches performed in this Amazon Web Services Region. If an Amazon Web Services Region doesn't have a default view configured, then users must explicitly specify a view with every Search operation performed in that Region.

Arguments

  • view_arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view to set as the default for the Amazon Web Services Region and Amazon Web Services account in which you call this operation. The specified view must already exist in the called Region.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.batch_get_viewMethod
batch_get_view()
batch_get_view(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves details about a list of views.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ViewArns": A list of Amazon resource names (ARNs) that identify the views you want details for.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.create_indexMethod
create_index()
create_index(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Turns on Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer in the Amazon Web Services Region in which you called this operation by creating an index. Resource Explorer begins discovering the resources in this Region and stores the details about the resources in the index so that they can be queried by using the Search operation. You can create only one index in a Region. This operation creates only a local index. To promote the local index in one Amazon Web Services Region into the aggregator index for the Amazon Web Services account, use the UpdateIndexType operation. For more information, see Turning on cross-Region search by creating an aggregator index in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. For more details about what happens when you turn on Resource Explorer in an Amazon Web Services Region, see Turn on Resource Explorer to index your resources in an Amazon Web Services Region in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. If this is the first Amazon Web Services Region in which you've created an index for Resource Explorer, then this operation also creates a service-linked role in your Amazon Web Services account that allows Resource Explorer to enumerate your resources to populate the index. Action: resource-explorer-2:CreateIndex Resource: The ARN of the index (as it will exist after the operation completes) in the Amazon Web Services Region and account in which you're trying to create the index. Use the wildcard character () at the end of the string to match the eventual UUID. For example, the following Resource element restricts the role or user to creating an index in only the us-east-2 Region of the specified account. "Resource": "arn:aws:resource-explorer-2:us-west-2:&lt;account-id&gt;:index/" Alternatively, you can use "Resource": "" to allow the role or user to create an index in any Region. Action: iam:CreateServiceLinkedRole Resource: No specific resource (). This permission is required only the first time you create an index to turn on Resource Explorer in the account. Resource Explorer uses this to create the service-linked role needed to index the resources in your account. Resource Explorer uses the same service-linked role for all additional indexes you create afterwards.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ClientToken": This value helps ensure idempotency. Resource Explorer uses this value to prevent the accidental creation of duplicate versions. We recommend that you generate a UUID-type value to ensure the uniqueness of your views.
  • "Tags": The specified tags are attached only to the index created in this Amazon Web Services Region. The tags aren't attached to any of the resources listed in the index.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.create_viewMethod
create_view(view_name)
create_view(view_name, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Creates a view that users can query by using the Search operation. Results from queries that you make using this view include only resources that match the view's Filters. For more information about Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer views, see Managing views in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. Only the principals with an IAM identity-based policy that grants Allow to the Search action on a Resource with the Amazon resource name (ARN) of this view can Search using views you create with this operation.

Arguments

  • view_name: The name of the new view. This name appears in the list of views in Resource Explorer. The name must be no more than 64 characters long, and can include letters, digits, and the dash (-) character. The name must be unique within its Amazon Web Services Region.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "ClientToken": This value helps ensure idempotency. Resource Explorer uses this value to prevent the accidental creation of duplicate versions. We recommend that you generate a UUID-type value to ensure the uniqueness of your views.
  • "Filters": An array of strings that specify which resources are included in the results of queries made using this view. When you use this view in a Search operation, the filter string is combined with the search's QueryString parameter using a logical AND operator. For information about the supported syntax, see Search query reference for Resource Explorer in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. This query string in the context of this operation supports only filter prefixes with optional operators. It doesn't support free-form text. For example, the string region:us* service:ec2 -tag:stage=prod includes all Amazon EC2 resources in any Amazon Web Services Region that begins with the letters us and is not tagged with a key Stage that has the value prod.
  • "IncludedProperties": Specifies optional fields that you want included in search results from this view. It is a list of objects that each describe a field to include. The default is an empty list, with no optional fields included in the results.
  • "Tags": Tag key and value pairs that are attached to the view.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.delete_indexMethod
delete_index(arn)
delete_index(arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Deletes the specified index and turns off Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer in the specified Amazon Web Services Region. When you delete an index, Resource Explorer stops discovering and indexing resources in that Region. Resource Explorer also deletes all views in that Region. These actions occur as asynchronous background tasks. You can check to see when the actions are complete by using the GetIndex operation and checking the Status response value. If the index you delete is the aggregator index for the Amazon Web Services account, you must wait 24 hours before you can promote another local index to be the aggregator index for the account. Users can't perform account-wide searches using Resource Explorer until another aggregator index is configured.

Arguments

  • arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the index that you want to delete.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.delete_viewMethod
delete_view(view_arn)
delete_view(view_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Deletes the specified view. If the specified view is the default view for its Amazon Web Services Region, then all Search operations in that Region must explicitly specify the view to use until you configure a new default by calling the AssociateDefaultView operation.

Arguments

  • view_arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view that you want to delete.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.disassociate_default_viewMethod
disassociate_default_view()
disassociate_default_view(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

After you call this operation, the affected Amazon Web Services Region no longer has a default view. All Search operations in that Region must explicitly specify a view or the operation fails. You can configure a new default by calling the AssociateDefaultView operation. If an Amazon Web Services Region doesn't have a default view configured, then users must explicitly specify a view with every Search operation performed in that Region.

Main.Resource_Explorer_2.get_default_viewMethod
get_default_view()
get_default_view(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the view that is the default for the Amazon Web Services Region in which you call this operation. You can then call GetView to retrieve the details of that view.

Main.Resource_Explorer_2.get_indexMethod
get_index()
get_index(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves details about the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer index in the Amazon Web Services Region in which you invoked the operation.

Main.Resource_Explorer_2.get_viewMethod
get_view(view_arn)
get_view(view_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves details of the specified view.

Arguments

  • view_arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view that you want information about.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.list_indexesMethod
list_indexes()
list_indexes(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves a list of all of the indexes in Amazon Web Services Regions that are currently collecting resource information for Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "MaxResults": The maximum number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value appropriate to the operation. If additional items exist beyond those included in the current response, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. An API operation can return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.
  • "NextToken": The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.
  • "Regions": If specified, limits the response to only information about the index in the specified list of Amazon Web Services Regions.
  • "Type": If specified, limits the output to only indexes of the specified Type, either LOCAL or AGGREGATOR. Use this option to discover the aggregator index for your account.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.list_supported_resource_typesMethod
list_supported_resource_types()
list_supported_resource_types(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Retrieves a list of all resource types currently supported by Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "MaxResults": The maximum number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value appropriate to the operation. If additional items exist beyond those included in the current response, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. An API operation can return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.
  • "NextToken": The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.list_tags_for_resourceMethod
list_tags_for_resource(resource_arn)
list_tags_for_resource(resource_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Lists the tags that are attached to the specified resource.

Arguments

  • resource_arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view or index that you want to attach tags to.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.list_viewsMethod
list_views()
list_views(params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Lists the Amazon resource names (ARNs) of the views available in the Amazon Web Services Region in which you call this operation. Always check the NextToken response parameter for a null value when calling a paginated operation. These operations can occasionally return an empty set of results even when there are more results available. The NextToken response parameter value is null only when there are no more results to display.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "MaxResults": The maximum number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value appropriate to the operation. If additional items exist beyond those included in the current response, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. An API operation can return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.
  • "NextToken": The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.searchMethod
search(query_string)
search(query_string, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Searches for resources and displays details about all resources that match the specified criteria. You must specify a query string. All search queries must use a view. If you don't explicitly specify a view, then Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer uses the default view for the Amazon Web Services Region in which you call this operation. The results are the logical intersection of the results that match both the QueryString parameter supplied to this operation and the SearchFilter parameter attached to the view. For the complete syntax supported by the QueryString parameter, see Search query syntax reference for Resource Explorer. If your search results are empty, or are missing results that you think should be there, see Troubleshooting Resource Explorer search.

Arguments

  • query_string: A string that includes keywords and filters that specify the resources that you want to include in the results. For the complete syntax supported by the QueryString parameter, see Search query syntax reference for Resource Explorer. The search is completely case insensitive. You can specify an empty string to return all results up to the limit of 1,000 total results. The operation can return only the first 1,000 results. If the resource you want is not included, then use a different value for QueryString to refine the results.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "MaxResults": The maximum number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value appropriate to the operation. If additional items exist beyond those included in the current response, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. An API operation can return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.
  • "NextToken": The parameter for receiving additional results if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.
  • "ViewArn": Specifies the Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view to use for the query. If you don't specify a value for this parameter, then the operation automatically uses the default view for the Amazon Web Services Region in which you called this operation. If the Region either doesn't have a default view or if you don't have permission to use the default view, then the operation fails with a 401 Unauthorized exception.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.tag_resourceMethod
tag_resource(resource_arn)
tag_resource(resource_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Adds one or more tag key and value pairs to an Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer view or index.

Arguments

  • resource_arn: The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the view or index that you want to attach tags to.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "Tags": A list of tag key and value pairs that you want to attach to the specified view or index.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.untag_resourceMethod
untag_resource(resource_arn, tag_keys)
untag_resource(resource_arn, tag_keys, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Removes one or more tag key and value pairs from an Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer view or index.

Arguments

  • resource_arn: The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the view or index that you want to remove tags from.
  • tag_keys: A list of the keys for the tags that you want to remove from the specified view or index.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.update_index_typeMethod
update_index_type(arn, type)
update_index_type(arn, type, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Changes the type of the index from one of the following types to the other. For more information about indexes and the role they perform in Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer, see Turning on cross-Region search by creating an aggregator index in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. AGGREGATOR index type The index contains information about resources from all Amazon Web Services Regions in the Amazon Web Services account in which you've created a Resource Explorer index. Resource information from all other Regions is replicated to this Region's index. When you change the index type to AGGREGATOR, Resource Explorer turns on replication of all discovered resource information from the other Amazon Web Services Regions in your account to this index. You can then, from this Region only, perform resource search queries that span all Amazon Web Services Regions in the Amazon Web Services account. Turning on replication from all other Regions is performed by asynchronous background tasks. You can check the status of the asynchronous tasks by using the GetIndex operation. When the asynchronous tasks complete, the Status response of that operation changes from UPDATING to ACTIVE. After that, you can start to see results from other Amazon Web Services Regions in query results. However, it can take several hours for replication from all other Regions to complete. You can have only one aggregator index per Amazon Web Services account. Before you can promote a different index to be the aggregator index for the account, you must first demote the existing aggregator index to type LOCAL. LOCAL index type The index contains information about resources in only the Amazon Web Services Region in which the index exists. If an aggregator index in another Region exists, then information in this local index is replicated to the aggregator index. When you change the index type to LOCAL, Resource Explorer turns off the replication of resource information from all other Amazon Web Services Regions in the Amazon Web Services account to this Region. The aggregator index remains in the UPDATING state until all replication with other Regions successfully stops. You can check the status of the asynchronous task by using the GetIndex operation. When Resource Explorer successfully stops all replication with other Regions, the Status response of that operation changes from UPDATING to ACTIVE. Separately, the resource information from other Regions that was previously stored in the index is deleted within 30 days by another background task. Until that asynchronous task completes, some results from other Regions can continue to appear in search results. After you demote an aggregator index to a local index, you must wait 24 hours before you can promote another index to be the new aggregator index for the account.

Arguments

  • arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the index that you want to update.
  • type: The type of the index. To understand the difference between LOCAL and AGGREGATOR, see Turning on cross-Region search in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide.
Main.Resource_Explorer_2.update_viewMethod
update_view(view_arn)
update_view(view_arn, params::Dict{String,<:Any})

Modifies some of the details of a view. You can change the filter string and the list of included properties. You can't change the name of the view.

Arguments

  • view_arn: The Amazon resource name (ARN) of the view that you want to modify.

Optional Parameters

Optional parameters can be passed as a params::Dict{String,<:Any}. Valid keys are:

  • "Filters": An array of strings that specify which resources are included in the results of queries made using this view. When you use this view in a Search operation, the filter string is combined with the search's QueryString parameter using a logical AND operator. For information about the supported syntax, see Search query reference for Resource Explorer in the Amazon Web Services Resource Explorer User Guide. This query string in the context of this operation supports only filter prefixes with optional operators. It doesn't support free-form text. For example, the string region:us* service:ec2 -tag:stage=prod includes all Amazon EC2 resources in any Amazon Web Services Region that begins with the letters us and is not tagged with a key Stage that has the value prod.
  • "IncludedProperties": Specifies optional fields that you want included in search results from this view. It is a list of objects that each describe a field to include. The default is an empty list, with no optional fields included in the results.
