This class represents one of two things:

Arguments in a call to a service

Use the attributes of this class as arguments to methods. You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the calls that expect this type of object.

As an example, if Att1 is expected to be a Paws::DataPipeline::InstanceIdentity object:

  $service_obj->Method(Att1 => { Document => $value, ..., Signature => $value  });

Results returned from an API call

Use accessors for each attribute. If Att1 is expected to be an Paws::DataPipeline::InstanceIdentity object:

  $result = $service_obj->Method(...);


Identity information for the EC2 instance that is hosting the task runner. You can get this value by calling a metadata URI from the EC2 instance. For more information, see Instance Metadata ( in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide. Passing in this value proves that your task runner is running on an EC2 instance, and ensures the proper AWS Data Pipeline service charges are applied to your pipeline.


Document => Str

  A description of an EC2 instance that is generated when the instance is
launched and exposed to the instance via the instance metadata service
in the form of a JSON representation of an object.

Signature => Str

  A signature which can be used to verify the accuracy and authenticity
of the information provided in the instance identity document.


This class forms part of Paws, describing an object used in Paws::DataPipeline
