(*EFS).DescribeFileSystems

Defined in github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/service/efs/api.go

Description

Returns the description of a specific Amazon EFS file system if either the file system CreationToken or the FileSystemId is provided. Otherwise, it returns descriptions of all file systems owned by the caller's AWS account in the AWS Region of the endpoint that you're calling.

When retrieving all file system descriptions, you can optionally specify

the MaxItems parameter to limit the number of descriptions in a response. If more file system descriptions remain, Amazon EFS returns a NextMarker, an opaque token, in the response. In this case, you should send a subsequent request with the Marker request parameter set to the value of NextMarker.

To retrieve a list of your file system descriptions, this operation is used in an iterative process, where DescribeFileSystems is called first without the Marker and then the operation continues to call it with the Marker parameter set to the value of the NextMarker from the previous response until the response has no NextMarker.

The implementation may return fewer than MaxItems file system descriptions while still including a NextMarker value.

The order of file systems returned in the response of one DescribeFileSystems

call and the order of file systems returned across the responses of a multi-call iteration is unspecified.

This operation requires permissions for the elasticfilesystem:DescribeFileSystems

action.
