AWS Services — How to list all services in IAM format per region

Really quick post :)

There was interesting question in AWS Community Builders, how to get all AWS services list in IAM format.

There are many Github repositories, which maintain static list, but I wanted something dynamic. Investigating code for AWS services page, I was thinking it is indeed JSON list of services, constantly updating. Here is link to page.

Scripts are available at GitHub

Parsing file:

Note: I assume we downloaded file and saved to services.json

All services in all regions, including People’s Republic of China:

cat services.json |jq -r ‘.prices[]|.id as $d|([$d]|@csv)’

Particular service FSX Lustre:

cat services.json |jq -r ‘.prices[]|.id as $d|([$d]|@csv)’ |grep lustre

If you want to print with service full name — not elegant but works:

cat services.json |jq -r ‘.prices[]|.id as $d|([.attributes|tostring ,$d]|@csv)’|awk -F ‘,’ ‘{print $2, $4}’

Not all services are available in every region

Thanks to Ken Robbins from AWS Community Builders, adding aws ssm part:

Get all regions:

aws ssm get-parameters-by-path — path /aws/service/global-infrastructure/regions — output json|jq .Parameters[].Name

Get all services:

aws ssm get-parameters-by-path — path /aws/service/global-infrastructure/services — output json|jq .Parameters[].Name

Get services in specific region:

aws ssm get-parameters-by-path \
--path /aws/service/global-infrastructure/regions/us-east-1/services --output json | \
jq .Parameters[].Name
