Appendix 1: Cmdlets in the Amazon connector

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)
The connection from FlexNet Manager Suite to the AWS EC2 service relies on the AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell (as described in Prerequisites and Setting Up). Within that toolset, the Amazon connector uses the following PowerShell cmdlets:
  • Get-AWSRegion — To identify the available AWS geographic regions where your instances may be running
  • Get-EC2Instance — To return the list of the instances (virtual machines) you own, and then collect summary inventory details on each one
  • Get-EC2Host — To identify any dedicated hosts you have available in each region
  • Get-EC2ReservedInstance — To return inventory details on any instance/capacity you have reserved in an Availability Zone
  • Get-IAMUser — Used as a test for connection success
  • Get-IAMPolicy — To retrieve information about the specified managed policy, including the policy's default version and the total number of IAM users, groups, and roles to which the policy is attached
  • Get-IAMPolicyVersion — To retrieve information about the specified version of the specified managed policy, including the policy document
  • Get-IAMAttachedRolePolicyList — Lists all managed policies that are attached to the specified IAM role
  • Get-IAMAttachedUserPolicyList — Lists all managed policies that are attached to the specified IAM user
  • Get-IAMGroupForUser — Lists the IAM groups that the specified IAM user belongs to
  • Get-STSCallerIdentity — To return details about the IAM user or role whose credentials are used to call the operation
  • Get-IAMRole — To retrieves information about the specified role and the role's trust policy that grants permission to assume the role
  • Use-STSRole — To return a set of temporary security credentials that you can use to access AWS resources that you might not normally have access to
  • Set-AWSProxy — Specifies the proxy setting for the following interactions through other cmdlets
