    The Ec2Instance option encompasses standalone instances and instances that are part of Auto Scaling groups. The AutoScalingGroup option encompasses only instances that are part of an Auto Scaling group.

    Note

    The valid values for this parameter are Ec2Instance and AutoScalingGroup.

  • scope (dict) –

    An object that describes the scope of the recommendation preference to return.

    • name (string) –

      The name of the scope.

      The following scopes are possible:

      • Organization - Specifies that the recommendation preference applies at the organization level, for all member accounts of an organization.

      • AccountId - Specifies that the recommendation preference applies at the account level, for all resources of a given resource type in an account.

      • ResourceArn - Specifies that the recommendation preference applies at the individual resource level.

    • value (string) –

      The value of the scope.

      If you specified the name of the scope as:

      • Organization - The value must be ALL_ACCOUNTS.

      • AccountId - The value must be a 12-digit Amazon Web Services account ID.

      • ResourceArn - The value must be the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an EC2 instance or an Auto Scaling group.

      Only EC2 instance and Auto Scaling group ARNs are currently supported.

  • nextToken (string) – The token to advance to the next page of recommendation preferences.

  • maxResults (integer) –

    The maximum number of recommendation preferences to return with a single request.

    To retrieve the remaining results, make another request with the returned nextToken value.
