Options

--user-name (string)

The email address of the user.

Note

Users' email addresses are case-sensitive. During login, if they specify an email address that doesn't use the same capitalization as the email address specified when their user pool account was created, a "user does not exist" error message displays.

--message-action (string)

The action to take for the welcome email that is sent to a user after the user is created in the user pool. If you specify SUPPRESS, no email is sent. If you specify RESEND, do not specify the first name or last name of the user. If the value is null, the email is sent.

Note

The temporary password in the welcome email is valid for only 7 days. If users don’t set their passwords within 7 days, you must send them a new welcome email.

Possible values:

  • SUPPRESS
  • RESEND

--first-name (string)

The first name, or given name, of the user.

--last-name (string)

The last name, or surname, of the user.

--authentication-type (string)

The authentication type for the user. You must specify USERPOOL.

Possible values:

  • API
  • SAML
  • USERPOOL

--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.
