Getting Information About Your Client Gateways Using OSC CLI

The ReadClientGateways command lists one or more of your client gateways.

Request sample
$ osc-cli api ReadClientGateways --profile "default" \
    --Filters '{
        "ClientGatewayIds": ["cgw-12345678"],
      }'
Request sample
$ osc-cli api ReadClientGateways --profile "default" \
    --Filters '{
        "BgpAsns": [65000],
        "PublicIps": ["192.0.2.0", "198.51.100.0"],
      }'

This command contains the following attributes that you need to specify:

  • DryRun: (optional) If true, checks whether you have the required permissions to perform the action.

  • Filters: (optional) One or more filters.

    • BgpAsns: (optional) The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs) of the connections.

    • ClientGatewayIds: (optional) The IDs of the client gateways.

    • ConnectionTypes: (optional) The types of communication tunnels used by the client gateways (always ipsec.1).

    • PublicIps: (optional) The public IPv4 addresses of the client gateways.

    • States: (optional) The states of the client gateways (pending | available | deleting | deleted).

    • TagKeys: (optional) The keys of the tags associated with the client gateways.

    • TagValues: (optional) The values of the tags associated with the client gateways.

    • Tags: (optional) The key/value combination of the tags associated with the client gateways, in the following format: "Filters":{"Tags":["TAGKEY=TAGVALUE"]}.

  • NextPageToken: (optional) The token to request the next page of results. Each token refers to a specific page.

  • ResultsPerPage: (optional) The maximum number of logs returned in a single response (between 1`and `1000, both included). By default, 100.

The ReadClientGateways command returns the following elements:

  • ClientGateways: Information about one or more client gateways.

    • BgpAsn: The Autonomous System Number (ASN) used by the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to find the path to your client gateway through the Internet.

    • ClientGatewayId: The ID of the client gateway.

    • ConnectionType: The type of communication tunnel used by the client gateway (always ipsec.1).

    • PublicIp: The public IPv4 address of the client gateway (must be a fixed address into a NATed network).

    • State: The state of the client gateway (pending | available | deleting | deleted).

    • Tags: One or more tags associated with the client gateway.

      • Key: The key of the tag, with a minimum of 1 character.

  • NextPageToken: The token to request the next page of results. Each token refers to a specific page.

  • ResponseContext: Information about the context of the response.

    • RequestId: The ID of the request.

Result sample
{
  "ResponseContext": {
    "RequestId": "0475ca1e-d0c5-441d-712a-da55a4175157"
  },
  "ClientGateways": [
    {
      "State": "available",

Getting Information About Your Customer Gateways Using AWS CLI

To get information about one or more customer gateways, use the describe-customer-gateways command following this syntax:

Request sample
$ aws ec2 describe-customer-gateways \
    --profile YOUR_PROFILE \
    --filters Name=X,Values=Y \
    --endpoint https://fcu.eu-west-2.outscale.com

This command contains the following attributes that you need to specify:

  • (optional) profile: The named profile you want to use, created when configuring AWS CLI. For more information, see Installing and Configuring AWS CLI.

  • (optional) customer-gateway-ids: The ID of one or more customer gateways you want to get information about.

  • (optional) filters: One or more filters, in the "Name=X,Values=Y" format.

    You can specify several values for a same filter using the "Name=X,Values=Y, Z" format.

    The following filters are available:

    • state: The state of the customer gateways (pending | available | deleting | deleted). For more information, see About Client Gateways.

    • customer-gateway-id: The ID of the customer gateway.

    • ip-address: The public IP of the customer gateway.

    • bgp-asn: An Autonomous System Number (ASN) used by the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to find the path to your customer gateway through the Internet. For more information, see About Client Gateways.

    • type: The type of VPN connection the customer gateway supports (always ipsec.1).

    • tag-key: The key of a tag associated with the resource.

    • tag-value: The value of a tag associated with the resource.

    • tag:XXXX: The value of a tag associated with the resource, where XXXX is the key of the tag.

      To filter a tag whose key is XXXX and value is YYYY, you can therefore use either of the following two formats:

      • --filters Name=tag-key,Values=XXXX Name=tag-value,Values=YYYY

      • --filters Name=tag:XXXX,Values=YYYY

  • endpoint: The endpoint corresponding to the Region you want to send the request to.

The describe-customer-gateways command returns the following elements:

  • CustomerGateway: Information about one or more customer gateways. This element contains the following information:

  • Tags: One or more tags associated with the customer gateway. This element contains the following information:

    • Key: The key of the tag.

    • Value: The value of the tag.

  • Type: The type of VPN connection the customer gateway supports (always ipsec.1).

  • State: The state of the customer gateway (pending | available | deleting | deleted). For more information, see About Client Gateways.

  • CustomerGatewayId: The ID of the customer gateway.
