  • AppStream 2.0 fleet - The resource type is fleet and the unique identifier is the fleet name. Example: fleet/sample-fleet.

  • DynamoDB table - The resource type is table and the unique identifier is the resource ID. Example: table/my-table.

  • DynamoDB global secondary index - The resource type is index and the unique identifier is the resource ID. Example: table/my-table/index/my-table-index.

  • Aurora DB cluster - The resource type is cluster and the unique identifier is the cluster name. Example: cluster:my-db-cluster.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1600.
