create-job

Description

This operation initiates the process of scheduling an upload or download of your data. You include in the request a manifest that describes the data transfer specifics. The response to the request includes a job ID, which you can use in other operations, a signature that you use to identify your storage device, and the address where you should ship your storage device.

Synopsis

  create-job
--job-type <value>
--manifest <value>
[--manifest-addendum <value>]
--validate-only | --no-validate-only
[--api-version <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--job-type (string) Specifies whether the job to initiate is an import or export job.

Possible values:

  • Import
  • Export

--manifest (string) The UTF-8 encoded text of the manifest file.

--manifest-addendum (string) For internal use only.

--validate-only | --no-validate-only (boolean) Validate the manifest and parameter values in the request but do not actually create a job.

--api-version (string) Specifies the version of the client tool.

--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.

Examples

The following command creates an import job from a manifest file:

aws importexport create-job --job-type import --manifest file://manifest --no-validate-only

The file manifest is a YAML formatted text file in the current directory with the following content:

manifestVersion: 2.0;
returnAddress:
name: Jane Roe
company: Example Corp.
street1: 123 Any Street
city: Anytown
stateOrProvince: WA

phoneNumber: 206-555-1111
country: USA
deviceId: 49382
eraseDevice: yes
notificationEmail: john.doe@example.com;jane.roe@example.com
bucket: myBucket

For more information on the manifest file format, see Creating Import Manifests in the AWS Import/Export Developer Guide.

You can also pass the manifest as a string in quotes:

aws importexport create-job --job-type import --manifest 'manifestVersion: 2.0;
 returnAddress:
 name: Jane Roe
 company: Example Corp.
 street1: 123 Any Street
