[ aws . chime ]

create-user

Description

Creates a user under the specified Amazon Chime account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-user
--account-id <value>
[--username <value>]
[--email <value>]
[--user-type <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--account-id (string)

The Amazon Chime account ID.

--username (string)

The user name.

--email (string)

The user's email address.

--user-type (string)

The user type.

Possible values:

  • PrivateUser
  • SharedDevice

--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.

Examples

aws chime create-user \
    --account-id 12a3456b-7c89-012d-3456-78901e23fg45 \
    --email roomdevice@example.com \
