On AWS CLI, I have a script to get the instance details, There are many ways we can generate the instance information I preferred to chose "JQ", Here is the script

I am not able to figure out the issue, Can someone help....

JSON_STATUS=`aws ec2 describe-instances --filter Name=tag:Name,Values=EHI-*--output json`
INSTANCE_COUNT=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq '.Reservations | length' 2>&1`
echo "Running instances: $INSTANCE_COUNT"
for (( INSTANCE_IDX=0; INSTANCE_IDX<$INSTANCE_COUNT; INSTANCE_IDX++ ))
do
        INSTANCE_STATUS=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].State.Name"`
        INSTANCE_NAME=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].InstanceId"`
        INSTANCE_NAME1=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq  ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains("Name") ) | .Value"`
        INSTANCE_IP=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].NetworkInterfaces[0].PrivateIpAddress"`
        INSTANCE_DATE_UP=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].LaunchTime"`
        echo "INSTANCE $INSTANCE_IDX [$INSTANCE_NAME]: $INSTANCE_NAME1  $INSTANCE_STATUS @ $INSTANCE_IP "
done

You need to escape your double quotes around Name : contains(\"Name\")

JSON_STATUS=`aws ec2 describe-instances --filter Name=tag:Name,Values=EHI-* --output json`
INSTANCE_COUNT=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq '.Reservations | length' 2>&1`
echo "Running instances: $INSTANCE_COUNT"
for (( INSTANCE_IDX=0; INSTANCE_IDX<$INSTANCE_COUNT; INSTANCE_IDX++ ))
do
        INSTANCE_STATUS=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].State.Name"`
        INSTANCE_NAME=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].InstanceId"`
        INSTANCE_NAME1=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq  ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(\"Name\") ) | .Value"`
        INSTANCE_IP=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].NetworkInterfaces[0].PrivateIpAddress"`
        INSTANCE_DATE_UP=`echo $JSON_STATUS | jq ".Reservations[$INSTANCE_IDX].Instances[0].LaunchTime"`
        echo "INSTANCE $INSTANCE_IDX [$INSTANCE_NAME]: $INSTANCE_NAME1  $INSTANCE_STATUS @ $INSTANCE_IP "
done

Work with single quotes for the jq parameter and double quotes around Name :
MBP-de-leakim:Downloads leakim$ echo $JSON_STATUS | /Users/leakim/bin/jq '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains("Name") ) | .Value'
"TEST-1"

Open in new window

Doesn't work escaping the single quotes...
MBP-de-leakim:Downloads leakim$ echo $JSON_STATUS | /Users/leakim/bin/jq '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(\'Name\') ) | .Value'
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `)'

Open in new window

Doesn't work not putting quotes :
MBP-de-leakim:Downloads leakim$ echo $JSON_STATUS | /Users/leakim/bin/jq '.Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(Name) ) | .Value'
jq: error: Name/0 is not defined at <top-level>, line 1:
.Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(Name) ) | .Value                                                                
jq: 1 compile error

Open in new window

Don't work using double quotes for jq command and not escaping the double around the Name :
MBP-de-leakim:Downloads leakim$ echo $JSON_STATUS | /Users/leakim/bin/jq ".Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains("Name") ) | .Value"
jq: error: Name/0 is not defined at <top-level>, line 1:
.Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(Name) ) | .Value                                                                
jq: 1 compile error

Open in new window

Work with double quotes escaped :
MBP-de-leakim:Downloads leakim$ echo $JSON_STATUS | /Users/leakim/bin/jq ".Reservations[0].Instances[0].Tags[] | select ( .Key | contains(\"Name\") ) | .Value"
"TEST-1"
