[ aws . route53 ]



Creates a delegation set (a group of four name servers) that can be reused by multiple hosted zones. If a hosted zoned ID is specified, create-reusable-delegation-set marks the delegation set associated with that zone as reusable


A reusable delegation set can't be associated with a private hosted zone.

For information on how to use a reusable delegation set to configure white label name servers, see Configuring White Label Name Servers .

--caller-reference (string)

A unique string that identifies the request, and that allows you to retry failed create-reusable-delegation-set requests without the risk of executing the operation twice. You must use a unique CallerReference string every time you submit a create-reusable-delegation-set request. CallerReference can be any unique string, for example a date/time stamp.

--hosted-zone-id (string)

If you want to mark the delegation set for an existing hosted zone as reusable, the ID for that hosted zone.

--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.
