--application-identifier <value>
--environment-identifier <value>
--configuration-profile-identifier <value>
[--required-minimum-poll-interval-in-seconds <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--application-identifier (string)

The application ID or the application name.

--environment-identifier (string)

The environment ID or the environment name.

--configuration-profile-identifier (string)

The configuration profile ID or the configuration profile name.

--required-minimum-poll-interval-in-seconds (integer)

Sets a constraint on a session. If you specify a value of, for example, 60 seconds, then the client that established the session can't call GetLatestConfiguration more frequently then every 60 seconds.

--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.


InitialConfigurationToken -> (string)

Token encapsulating state about the configuration session. Provide this token to the GetLatestConfiguration API to retrieve configuration data.


This token should only be used once in your first call to GetLatestConfiguration . You MUST use the new token in the GetLatestConfiguration response (NextPollConfigurationToken ) in each subsequent call to GetLatestConfiguration .
