ListCommandInvocations - Amazon Systems Manager
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 (PDF).


An invocation is copy of a command sent to a specific managed node. A command can apply to one or more managed nodes. A command invocation applies to one managed node. For example, if a user runs SendCommand against three managed nodes, then a command invocation is created for each requested managed node ID. ListCommandInvocations provide status about command execution.
