    • VirtualGatewayIds: (optional) The IDs of the virtual gateways.

  • 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 ReadVirtualGateways command returns the following elements:

  • 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.

  • VirtualGateways: Information about one or more virtual gateways.

    • ConnectionType: The type of VPN connection supported by the virtual gateway (always ipsec.1).

    • NetToVirtualGatewayLinks: The Net to which the virtual gateway is attached.

      • NetId: The ID of the Net to which the virtual gateway is attached.

      • State: The state of the attachment (attaching | attached | detaching | detached).

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

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

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

      • Value: The value of the tag, between 0 and 255 characters.

    • VirtualGatewayId: The ID of the virtual gateway.

Getting Information About Your Virtual Private Gateways Using AWS CLI

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

Request sample
$ aws ec2 describe-vpn-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) vpn-gateway-ids: The ID of one or more virtual private 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:

    • attachment.state: The state of the attachment between the virtual private gateway and the VPC, if any (attaching | attached | detaching | detached). For more information, see About Virtual Private Gateways > Lifecycle.

    • attachment.vpc-id: The ID of the attached VPC, if any.

    • state: The state of the virtual private gateway (pending | available | deleting | deleted). For more information, see About Virtual Private Gateways > Lifecycle.

    • 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

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

    • vpn-gateway-id: The ID of the virtual private gateway.

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

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

  • State: The state of the virtual private gateway (pending | available | deleting | deleted). For more information, see About Virtual Private Gateways > Lifecycle.

  • Tags: One or more tags associated with the virtual private 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 that the virtual private gateway supports (always ipsec.1).

  • VpnGatewayId: The ID of the virtual private gateway.

  • VpcAttachments: Information about the VPC the virtual private gateway is attached to, if any. This element contains the following information:

    • State: The state of the attachment (attaching | attached | detaching | detached). For more information, see About Virtual Private Gateways > Lifecycle.

    • VpcId: The ID of the VPC to which the virtual private gateway is attached.
