create-environment

Description

Creates an environment. For each application, you define one or more environments. An environment is a deployment group of AppConfig targets, such as applications in a Beta or Production environment. You can also define environments for application subcomponents such as the Web , Mobile and Back-end components for your application. You can configure Amazon CloudWatch alarms for each environment. The system monitors alarms during a configuration deployment. If an alarm is triggered, the system rolls back the configuration.

Options

--application-id (string)

The application ID.

--name (string)

A name for the environment.

--description (string)

A description of the environment.

--monitors (list)

Amazon CloudWatch alarms to monitor during the deployment process.

(structure)

Amazon CloudWatch alarms to monitor during the deployment process.

AlarmArn -> (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon CloudWatch alarm.

AlarmRoleArn -> (string)

ARN of an Identity and Access Management (IAM) role for AppConfig to monitor AlarmArn .

Shorthand Syntax:

AlarmArn=string,AlarmRoleArn=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "AlarmArn": "string",
    "AlarmRoleArn": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--tags (map)

Metadata to assign to the environment. Tags help organize and categorize your AppConfig resources. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create an environment

The following create-environment example creates an AWS AppConfig environment named Example-Environment using the application you created using create-application.

aws appconfig create-environment \
    --application-id "339ohji" \
    --name "Example-Environment"

Output:

{
    "ApplicationId": "339ohji",
    "Description": null,
    "Id": "54j1r29",
    "Monitors": null,
    "Name": "Example-Environment",
    "State": "ReadyForDeployment"
}

For more information, see Step 2: Creating an environment in the AWS AppConfig User Guide.
