AWS EC2 Describe Availability Zones VERSION 1

Returns a set of availability zones and details for each of those zones. If no availability zones are specified in the input, all zones and their details are returned. The zone details are returned as a JSON object that maps the zone names to another JSON object containing the zone details. The available details are currently 'zonename','state','regionname', and 'messages'.

The Dry Run parameter validates user permissions and inputs. If it is set to true, an error will always be thrown by the handler before completing the handler action. Error response will be 'DryRunOperation' if the account has proper permissions and inputs; 'UnauthorizedOperation' if the account does not have proper permissions.


Dry RunDry run validates user permissions and inputs without completing the EC2 action (true or false).
Zone NamesThe names of one or more availability zones, comma separated. Leave blank to return data on all availability zones.
