Calling public parameters for Amazon Web Services, Regions, endpoints, Availability Zones, local zones, and Wavelength Zones - 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).

Calling public parameters for Amazon Web Services, Regions, endpoints, Availability Zones, local zones, and Wavelength Zones

You can call the Amazon Web Services Region, service, endpoint, Availability, and Wavelength Zones of public parameters by using the following path.

/aws/service/global-infrastructure

View active Amazon Web Services Regions

You can view a list of all active Amazon Web Services Regions by using the following command in the Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI).
