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.

Name Description
