GetDimensionKeyDetails (new) Link ΒΆ

Get the attributes of the specified dimension group for a DB instance or data source. For example, if you specify a SQL ID, GetDimensionKeyDetails retrieves the full text of the dimension db.sql.statement associated with this ID. This operation is useful because GetResourceMetrics and DescribeDimensionKeys don't support retrieval of large SQL statement text.
