Paws::EC2::DescribeVolumes - Arguments for method DescribeVolumes on Paws::EC2


This class represents the parameters used for calling the method DescribeVolumes on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud service. Use the attributes of this class as arguments to method DescribeVolumes.

You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the call to DescribeVolumes.


    my $ec2 = Paws->service('EC2');
    # To describe all volumes
    # This example describes all of your volumes in the default region.
    my $DescribeVolumesResult = $ec2->DescribeVolumes();

    # Results:
    my $NextToken = $DescribeVolumesResult->NextToken;
    my $Volumes   = $DescribeVolumesResult->Volumes;

    # Returns a L<Paws::EC2::DescribeVolumesResult> object.
    # To describe volumes that are attached to a specific instance
    # This example describes all volumes that are both attached to the instance
    # with the ID i-1234567890abcdef0 and set to delete when the instance
    # terminates.
    my $DescribeVolumesResult = $ec2->DescribeVolumes(
      'Filters' => [

          'Name'   => 'attachment.instance-id',
          'Values' => ['i-1234567890abcdef0']

          'Name'   => 'attachment.delete-on-termination',
          'Values' => ['true']

    # Results:
    my $Volumes = $DescribeVolumesResult->Volumes;

    # Returns a L<Paws::EC2::DescribeVolumesResult> object.

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see


DryRun => Bool

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation. Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation.

Filters => ArrayRef[Paws::EC2::Filter]

The filters.

  • attachment.attach-time - The time stamp when the attachment initiated.

  • attachment.delete-on-termination - Whether the volume is deleted on instance termination.

  • attachment.device - The device name specified in the block device mapping (for example, /dev/sda1).

  • attachment.instance-id - The ID of the instance the volume is attached to.

  • attachment.status - The attachment state (attaching | attached | detaching).

  • availability-zone - The Availability Zone in which the volume was created.

  • create-time - The time stamp when the volume was created.

  • encrypted - Indicates whether the volume is encrypted (true | false)

  • size - The size of the volume, in GiB.

  • snapshot-id - The snapshot from which the volume was created.

  • status - The status of the volume (creating | available | in-use | deleting | deleted | error).

  • tag:<key> - The key/value combination of a tag assigned to the resource. Use the tag key in the filter name and the tag value as the filter value. For example, to find all resources that have a tag with the key Owner and the value TeamA, specify tag:Owner for the filter name and TeamA for the filter value.

  • tag-key - The key of a tag assigned to the resource. Use this filter to find all resources assigned a tag with a specific key, regardless of the tag value.

  • volume-id - The volume ID.

  • volume-type - The Amazon EBS volume type. This can be gp2 for General Purpose SSD, io1 for Provisioned IOPS SSD, st1 for Throughput Optimized HDD, sc1 for Cold HDD, or standard for Magnetic volumes.

MaxResults => Int

The maximum number of volume results returned by DescribeVolumes in paginated output. When this parameter is used, DescribeVolumes only returns MaxResults results in a single page along with a NextToken response element. The remaining results of the initial request can be seen by sending another DescribeVolumes request with the returned NextToken value. This value can be between 5 and 500; if MaxResults is given a value larger than 500, only 500 results are returned. If this parameter is not used, then DescribeVolumes returns all results. You cannot specify this parameter and the volume IDs parameter in the same request.

NextToken => Str

The NextToken value returned from a previous paginated DescribeVolumes request where MaxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the NextToken value. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

VolumeIds => ArrayRef[Str|Undef]

The volume IDs.
