Request Syntax

response = client.list_aws_default_service_quotas(
  • ServiceCode (string) –


    Specifies the service identifier. To find the service code value for an Amazon Web Services service, use the ListServices operation.

  • NextToken (string) – Specifies a value for receiving additional results after you receive a NextToken response in a previous request. A NextToken response indicates that more output is available. Set this parameter to the value of the previous call’s NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.

  • MaxResults (integer) –

    Specifies the maximum number of results that you want included on each page of the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value appropriate to the operation. If additional items exist beyond those included in the current response, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results.


    An API operation can return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • NextToken (string) –

      If present, indicates that more output is available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null.

    • Quotas (list) –

      Information about the quotas.

      • (dict) –

        Information about a quota.

        • QuotaArn (string) –

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the quota.

        • QuotaCode (string) –

          Specifies the quota identifier. To find the quota code for a specific quota, use the ListServiceQuotas operation, and look for the QuotaCode response in the output for the quota you want.

        • QuotaName (string) –

          Specifies the quota name.

        • Value (float) –

          The quota value.
