aws cloudformation get-template

Returns the template body for a specified stack. You can get the template for running or deleted stacks. For deleted stacks, GetTemplate returns the template for up to 90 days after the stack has been deleted. If the template does not exist, a ValidationError is returned


--stack-name <string>The name or the unique stack ID that is associated with the stack, which are not always interchangeable: Running stacks: You can specify either the stack's name or its unique stack ID. Deleted stacks: You must specify the unique stack ID. Default: There is no default value
--change-set-name <string>The name or Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a change set for which AWS CloudFormation returns the associated template. If you specify a name, you must also specify the StackName
--template-stage <string>For templates that include transforms, the stage of the template that AWS CloudFormation returns. To get the user-submitted template, specify Original. To get the template after AWS CloudFormation has processed all transforms, specify Processed. If the template doesn't include transforms, Original and Processed return the same template. By default, AWS CloudFormation specifies Original
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
