Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]+

Required: No


(Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items that you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum that you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when more results are available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true, and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 1000.

Required: No

Type: Boolean


When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.
