register-domain

Description

Registers a new domain.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • You cannot use an IAM policy to control domain access for this action. The name of the domain being registered is available as the resource of this action.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller doesn't have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter is set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED . For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide .

Synopsis

  register-domain
--name <value>
[--description <value>]
--workflow-execution-retention-period-in-days <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

Name of the domain to register. The name must be unique in the region that the domain is registered in.

The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f-\u009f ). Also, it must not contain the literal string arn .

--description (string)

A text description of the domain.

--workflow-execution-retention-period-in-days (string)

The duration (in days) that records and histories of workflow executions on the domain should be kept by the service. After the retention period, the workflow execution isn't available in the results of visibility calls.

If you pass the value NONE or 0 (zero), then the workflow execution history isn't retained. As soon as the workflow execution completes, the execution record and its history are deleted.

The maximum workflow execution retention period is 90 days. For more information about Amazon SWF service limits, see: Amazon SWF Service Limits in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide .

--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

Registering a Domain

You can use the AWS CLI to register new domains. Use the swf register-domain command. There are two required parameters, --name, which takes the domain name, and --workflow-execution-retention-period-in-days, which takes an integer to specify the number of days to retain workflow execution data on this domain, up to a maxium period of 90 days (for more information, see the SWF FAQ <http://aws.amazon.com/swf/faqs/#retain_limit>). Workflow execution data will not be retained after the specified number of days have passed.

Here's an example of registering a new domain:

$ aws swf register-domain --name MyNeatNewDomain --workflow-execution-retention-period-in-days 0
""

When you register a domain, nothing is returned (""), but you can use swf list-domains or swf describe-domain to see the new domain. For example:

$ aws swf list-domains --registration-status REGISTERED
{
    "domainInfos": [
        {
            "status": "REGISTERED",
            "name": "DataFrobotz"
        },
        {
            "status": "REGISTERED",
            "name": "MyNeatNewDomain"
        },
        {
            "status": "REGISTERED",
            "name": "erontest"
        }
    ]
}

Using swf describe-domain:

aws swf describe-domain --name MyNeatNewDomain
{
    "domainInfo": {
        "status": "REGISTERED",
        "name": "MyNeatNewDomain"
    },
    "configuration": {
        "workflowExecutionRetentionPeriodInDays": "0"
    }
}
