User Guide

First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . apigatewayv2 ]



Puts an Api resource.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--api-id <value>
[--basepath <value>]
--body <value>
[--fail-on-warnings | --no-fail-on-warnings]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--api-id (string)

The API identifier.

--basepath (string)

Specifies how to interpret the base path of the API during import. Valid values are ignore, prepend, and split. The default value is ignore. To learn more, see Set the OpenAPI basePath Property . Supported only for HTTP APIs.

--body (string)

The OpenAPI definition. Supported only for HTTP APIs.

--fail-on-warnings | --no-fail-on-warnings (boolean)

Specifies whether to rollback the API creation when a warning is encountered. By default, API creation continues if a warning is encountered.

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


To reimport an HTTP API

The following reimport-api example updates an existing HTTP API to use the OpenAPI 3.0 definition specified in api-definition.yaml.

aws apigatewayv2 reimport-api \
    --body file://api-definition.yaml \
    --api-id a1b2c3d4

Contents of api-definition.yaml:

openapi: 3.0.1
    title: My Lambda API
    version: v1.0
                payloadFormatVersion: 2.0
                type: aws_proxy
                httpMethod: POST
                uri: arn:aws:apigateway:us-west-2:lambda:path/2015-03-31/functions/arn:aws:lambda:us-west-2:12356789012:function:hello/invocations
                connectionType: INTERNET


    "ApiEndpoint": "",
    "ApiId": "a1b2c3d4",
    "ApiKeySelectionExpression": "$request.header.x-api-key",
    "CreatedDate": "2020-04-08T17:19:38+00:00",

For more information, see Working with OpenAPI definitions for HTTP APIs in the Amazon API Gateway Developer Guide.


ApiEndpoint -> (string)

The URI of the API, of the form {api-id}.execute-api.{region} The stage name is typically appended to this URI to form a complete path to a deployed API stage.

ApiGatewayManaged -> (boolean)

Specifies whether an API is managed by API Gateway. You can't update or delete a managed API by using API Gateway. A managed API can be deleted only through the tooling or service that created it.

ApiId -> (string)


ApiKeySelectionExpression -> (string)

An API key selection expression. Supported only for WebSocket APIs. See API Key Selection Expressions .

CorsConfiguration -> (structure)

A CORS configuration. Supported only for HTTP APIs.

AllowCredentials -> (boolean)

Specifies whether credentials are included in the CORS request. Supported only for HTTP APIs.

AllowHeaders -> (list)

Represents a collection of allowed headers. Supported only for HTTP APIs.


AllowMethods -> (list)

Represents a collection of allowed HTTP methods. Supported only for HTTP APIs.


A string with a length between [1-64].

AllowOrigins -> (list)

Represents a collection of allowed origins. Supported only for HTTP APIs.


ExposeHeaders -> (list)

Represents a collection of exposed headers. Supported only for HTTP APIs.


MaxAge -> (integer)

The number of seconds that the browser should cache preflight request results. Supported only for HTTP APIs.

CreatedDate -> (timestamp)

The timestamp when the API was created.

Description -> (string)

The description of the API.

DisableSchemaValidation -> (boolean)

Avoid validating models when creating a deployment. Supported only for WebSocket APIs.

DisableExecuteApiEndpoint -> (boolean)

Specifies whether clients can invoke your API by using the default execute-api endpoint. By default, clients can invoke your API with the default https://{api_id}.execute-api.{region} endpoint. To require that clients use a custom domain name to invoke your API, disable the default endpoint.

ImportInfo -> (list)

The validation information during API import. This may include particular properties of your OpenAPI definition which are ignored during import. Supported only for HTTP APIs.


Name -> (string)

The name of the API.

ProtocolType -> (string)

The API protocol.

RouteSelectionExpression -> (string)

The route selection expression for the API. For HTTP APIs, the routeSelectionExpression must be ${request.method} ${request.path}. If not provided, this will be the default for HTTP APIs. This property is required for WebSocket APIs.

Tags -> (map)

A collection of tags associated with the API.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

A string with a length between [0-1600].

Version -> (string)

A version identifier for the API.

Warnings -> (list)

The warning messages reported when failonwarnings is turned on during API import.
