Options

--backup-vault-name (string)

The name of a logical container where backups are stored. Backup vaults are identified by names that are unique to the account used to create them and the Amazon Web Services Region where they are created. They consist of letters, numbers, and hyphens.

--backup-vault-tags (map)

Metadata that you can assign to help organize the resources that you create. Each tag is a key-value pair.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

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

--encryption-key-arn (string)

The server-side encryption key that is used to protect your backups; for example, arn:aws:kms:us-west-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab .

--creator-request-id (string)

A unique string that identifies the request and allows failed requests to be retried without the risk of running the operation twice. This parameter is optional.

If used, this parameter must contain 1 to 50 alphanumeric or '-_.' characters.

--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.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

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

--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 a backup vault

The following create-backup-vault example creates a backup vault with the specified name.

aws backup create-backup-vault
    --backup-vault-name sample-vault

This command produces no output. Output:

{
    "BackupVaultName": "sample-vault",
    "BackupVaultArn": "arn:aws:backup:us-west-2:123456789012:backup-vault:sample-vault",
    "CreationDate": 1568928338.385
}

For more information, see Creating a Backup Vault in the AWS Backup Developer Guide.

Output

BackupVaultName -> (string)

The name of a logical container where backups are stored. Backup vaults are identified by names that are unique to the account used to create them and the Region where they are created. They consist of lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.

BackupVaultArn -> (string)

An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that uniquely identifies a backup vault; for example, arn:aws:backup:us-east-1:123456789012:vault:aBackupVault .

CreationDate -> (timestamp)

The date and time a backup vault is created, in Unix format and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The value of CreationDate is accurate to milliseconds. For example, the value 1516925490.087 represents Friday, January 26, 2018 12:11:30.087 AM.
