Listing parameter groups by name - Amazon MemoryDB for Redis
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Listing parameter groups by name

You can list the parameter groups using the MemoryDB console, the Amazon CLI, or the MemoryDB API.

Listing parameter groups by name (Console)

The following procedure shows how to view a list of the parameter groups using the MemoryDB console.

To list parameter groups using the MemoryDB console

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Web Services Management Console and open the MemoryDB for Redis console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/memorydb/.

  2. To see a list of all available parameter groups, in the left hand navigation pane choose Parameter Groups.

Listing parameter groups by name (Amazon CLI)

To generate a list of parameter groups using the Amazon CLI, use the command describe-parameter-groups. If you provide a parameter group's name, only that parameter group will be listed. If you do not provide a parameter group's name, up to --max-results parameter groups will be listed. In either case, the parameter group's name, family, and description are listed.

The following sample code lists the parameter group myRedis6x.

For Linux, OS X, or Unix:

aws memorydb describe-parameter-groups \ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

For Windows:

aws memorydb describe-parameter-groups ^ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

The output of this command will look something like this, listing the name, family, and description for the parameter group.

{ "ParameterGroups": [ { "Name": "myRedis6x", "Family": "memorydb_redis6", "Description": "My first parameter group", "ARN": "arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/myredis6x" } ] }

The following sample code lists the parameter group myRedis6x for parameter groups running on Redis engine version 5.0.6 onwards.

For Linux, OS X, or Unix:

aws memorydb describe-parameter-groups \ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

For Windows:

aws memorydb describe-parameter-groups ^ --parameter-group-name myRedis6x

The output of this command will look something like this, listing the name, family and description for the parameter group.

{ "ParameterGroups": [ { "Name": "myRedis6x", "Family": "memorydb_redis6", "Description": "My first parameter group", "ARN": "arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/myredis6x" } ] }

The following sample code lists up to 20 parameter groups.

aws memorydb describe-parameter-groups --max-results 20

The JSON output of this command will look something like this, listing the name, family and description for each parameter group.

{ "ParameterGroups": [ { "ParameterGroupName": "default.memorydb-redis6", "Family": "memorydb_redis6", "Description": "Default parameter group for memorydb_redis6", "ARN": "arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/default.memorydb-redis6" }, ... ] }

For more information, see describe-parameter-groups.

Listing parameter groups by name (MemoryDB API)

To generate a list of parameter groups using the MemoryDB API, use the DescribeParameterGroups action. If you provide a parameter group's name, only that parameter group will be listed. If you do not provide a parameter group's name, up to MaxResults parameter groups will be listed. In either case, the parameter group's name, family, and description are listed.

The following sample code lists up to 20 parameter groups.

https://memory-db.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/ ?Action=DescribeParameterGroups &MaxResults=20 &SignatureVersion=4 &SignatureMethod=HmacSHA256 &Timestamp=20210802T192317Z &Version=2021-01-01 &X-Amz-Credential=<credential>

The response from this action will look something like this, listing the name, family and description in the case of memorydb_redis6, for each parameter group.

<DescribeParameterGroupsResponse xmlns="http://memory-db.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/doc/2021-01-01/"> <DescribeParameterGroupsResult> <ParameterGroups> <ParameterGroup> <Name>myRedis6x</Name> <Family>memorydb_redis6</Family> <Description>My custom Redis 6 parameter group</Description> <ARN>arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/myredis6x</ARN> </ParameterGroup> <ParameterGroup> <Name>default.memorydb-redis6</Name> <Family>memorydb_redis6</Family> <Description>Default parameter group for memorydb_redis6</Description> <ARN>arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/default.memorydb-redis6</ARN> </ParameterGroup> </ParameterGroups> </DescribeParameterGroupsResult> <ResponseMetadata> <RequestId>3540cc3d-af48-11e0-97f9-279771c4477e</RequestId> </ResponseMetadata> </DescribeParameterGroupsResponse>

The following sample code lists the parameter group myRedis6x.

The response from this action will look something like this, listing the name, family, and description.

<DescribeParameterGroupsResponse xmlns="http://memory-db.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/doc/2021-01-01/"> <DescribeParameterGroupsResult> <ParameterGroups> <ParameterGroup> <Name>myRedis6x</Name> <Family>memorydb_redis6</Family> <Description>My custom Redis 6 parameter group</Description> <ARN>arn:aws:memorydb:us-east-1:012345678912:parametergroup/myredis6x</ARN> </ParameterGroup> </ParameterGroups> </DescribeParameterGroupsResult> <ResponseMetadata> <RequestId>3540cc3d-af48-11e0-97f9-279771c4477e</RequestId> </ResponseMetadata> </DescribeParameterGroupsResponse>
