--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.

enablementStatus -> (string)

The current status of the evidence finder feature and the related event data store.

  • ENABLE_IN_PROGRESS means that you requested to enable evidence finder. An event data store is currently being created to support evidence finder queries.
  • ENABLED means that an event data store was successfully created and evidence finder is enabled. We recommend that you wait 7 days until the event data store is backfilled with your past two years’ worth of evidence data. You can use evidence finder in the meantime, but not all data might be available until the backfill is complete.
  • DISABLE_IN_PROGRESS means that you requested to disable evidence finder, and your request is pending the deletion of the event data store.
  • DISABLED means that you have permanently disabled evidence finder and the event data store has been deleted. You can't re-enable evidence finder after this point.

backfillStatus -> (string)

The backfill starts after you enable evidence finder. During this task, Audit Manager populates an event data store with your past two years’ worth of evidence data so that your evidence can be queried.

  • NOT_STARTED means that the backfill hasn’t started yet.
  • IN_PROGRESS means that the backfill is in progress. This can take up to 7 days to complete, depending on the amount of evidence data.

  • If you set the value to DEFAULT , none of your data is deleted at the time of deregistration. However, keep in mind that the Audit Manager data retention policy still applies. As a result, any evidence data will be deleted two years after its creation date. Your other Audit Manager resources will continue to exist indefinitely.
