See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--connector-profile-name <value>]
[--connector-type <value>]
[--entities-path <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--connector-profile-name (string)

The name of the connector profile. The name is unique for each ConnectorProfile in the Amazon Web Services account, and is used to query the downstream connector.

--connector-type (string)

The type of connector, such as Salesforce, Amplitude, and so on.

Possible values:

  • Salesforce
  • Singular
  • Slack
  • Redshift
  • S3
  • Marketo
  • Googleanalytics
  • Zendesk
  • Servicenow
  • Datadog
  • Trendmicro
  • Snowflake
  • Dynatrace
  • Infornexus
  • Amplitude
  • Veeva
  • EventBridge
  • LookoutMetrics
  • Upsolver
  • Honeycode
  • CustomerProfiles
  • SAPOData

--entities-path (string)

This optional parameter is specific to connector implementation. Some connectors support multiple levels or categories of entities. You can find out the list of roots for such providers by sending a request without the entitiesPath parameter. If the connector supports entities at different roots, this initial request returns the list of roots. Otherwise, this request returns all entities supported by the provider.

--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.


connectorEntityMap -> (map)

The response of ListConnectorEntities lists entities grouped by category. This map's key represents the group name, and its value contains the list of entities belonging to that group.

key -> (string)

value -> (list)


The high-level entity that can be queried in Amazon AppFlow. For example, a Salesforce entity might be an Account or Opportunity , whereas a ServiceNow entity might be an Incident .

name -> (string)

The name of the connector entity.

label -> (string)

The label applied to the connector entity.

hasNestedEntities -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the connector entity is a parent or a category and has more entities nested underneath it. If another call is made with entitiesPath = "the_current_entity_name_with_hasNestedEntities_true" , then it returns the nested entities underneath it. This provides a way to retrieve all supported entities in a recursive fashion.
