"string" "string" ...

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.


To disable metrics collection for an Auto Scaling group

This example disables collecting data for the GroupDesiredCapacity metric for the specified Auto Scaling group:

aws autoscaling disable-metrics-collection --auto-scaling-group-name my-auto-scaling-group --metrics GroupDesiredCapacity
