Synopsis

Invokes the RegisterInstance operation against AWS OpsWorks.

Syntax

Register-OPSInstance
-StackId <String>
-InstanceIdentity_Document <String>
-Hostname <String>
-PrivateIp <String>
-PublicIp <String>
-RsaPublicKey <String>
-RsaPublicKeyFingerprint <String>
-InstanceIdentity_Signature <String>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Registers instances that were created outside of AWS OpsWorks Stacks with a specified stack. We do not recommend using this action to register instances. The complete registration operation includes two tasks: installing the AWS OpsWorks Stacks agent on the instance, and registering the instance with the stack. RegisterInstance handles only the second step. You should instead use the AWS CLI register command, which performs the entire registration operation. For more information, see Registering an Instance with an AWS OpsWorks Stacks Stack. Registered instances have the same requirements as instances that are created by using the CreateInstance API. For example, registered instances must be running a supported Linux-based operating system, and they must have a supported instance type. For more information about requirements for instances that you want to register, see Preparing the Instance. Required Permissions: To use this action, an IAM user must have a Manage permissions level for the stack or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information on user permissions, see Managing User Permissions.

Parameters

This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named

-Hostname <String>
The instance's hostname.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-InstanceIdentity_Document <String>
A JSON document that contains the metadata.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

A signature that can be used to verify the document's accuracy and authenticity.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-PrivateIp <String>
The instance's private IP address.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-PublicIp <String>
The instance's public IP address.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-RsaPublicKey <String>
The instances public RSA key. This key is used to encrypt communication between the instance and the service.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-RsaPublicKeyFingerprint <String>
The instances public RSA key fingerprint.
Required?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the StackId parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a String object. The service call response (type Amazon.OpsWorks.Model.RegisterInstanceResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
