First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

create-resource

Description

Creates the specified resource. For more information, see Creating a resource in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

After you have initiated a resource creation request, you can monitor the progress of your request by calling GetResourceRequestStatus using the RequestToken of the ProgressEvent type returned by CreateResource .

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-resource
--type-name <value>
[--type-version-id <value>]
[--role-arn <value>]
[--client-token <value>]
--desired-state <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--type-name (string)

The name of the resource type.

--type-version-id (string)

For private resource types, the type version to use in this resource operation. If you do not specify a resource version, CloudFormation uses the default version.

--role-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) for Cloud Control API to use when performing this resource operation. The role specified must have the permissions required for this operation. The necessary permissions for each event handler are defined in the `` handlers `` section of the resource type definition schema .

If you do not specify a role, Cloud Control API uses a temporary session created using your Amazon Web Services user credentials.

For more information, see Specifying credentials in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

--client-token (string)

A unique identifier to ensure the idempotency of the resource request. As a best practice, specify this token to ensure idempotency, so that Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API can accurately distinguish between request retries and new resource requests. You might retry a resource request to ensure that it was successfully received.

A client token is valid for 36 hours once used. After that, a resource request with the same client token is treated as a new request.

If you do not specify a client token, one is generated for inclusion in the request.

For more information, see Ensuring resource operation requests are unique in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

--desired-state (string)

Structured data format representing the desired state of the resource, consisting of that resource's properties and their desired values.

Note

Cloud Control API currently supports JSON as a structured data format.

Specify the desired state as one of the following:

  • A JSON blob
  • A local path containing the desired state in JSON data format

For more information, see Composing the desired state of the resource in the Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API User Guide .

For more information about the properties of a specific resource, refer to the related topic for the resource in the Resource and property types reference in the Amazon Web Services CloudFormation Users Guide .

--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

To create a resource

The following create-resource example creates an AWS::Kinesis::Stream resource, named ResourceExample, with a retention period of 168 hours and a shard count of three.

aws cloudcontrol create-resource \
    --type-name AWS::Kinesis::Stream \
    --desired-state "{\"Name\": \"ResourceExample\",\"RetentionPeriodHours\":168, \"ShardCount\":3}"

Output:

{
    "ProgressEvent": {
        "EventTime": 1632506656.706,
        "TypeName": "AWS::Kinesis::Stream",
        "OperationStatus": "IN_PROGRESS",
        "Operation": "CREATE",
        "Identifier": "ResourceExample",
        "RequestToken": "20999d87-e304-4725-ad84-832dcbfd7fc5"
    }
}

For more information, see Creating a resource in the Cloud Control API User Guide.

Output

ProgressEvent -> (structure)

Represents the current status of the resource creation request.

After you have initiated a resource creation request, you can monitor the progress of your request by calling GetResourceRequestStatus using the RequestToken of the ProgressEvent returned by CreateResource .

TypeName -> (string)

The name of the resource type used in the operation.

Identifier -> (string)

The primary identifier for the resource.

Note

In some cases, the resource identifier may be available before the resource operation has reached a status of SUCCESS .

RequestToken -> (string)

The unique token representing this resource operation request.

Use the RequestToken with GetResourceRequestStatus to return the current status of a resource operation request.

Operation -> (string)

The resource operation type.

OperationStatus -> (string)

The current status of the resource operation request.

  • PENDING : The resource operation has not yet started.
  • IN_PROGRESS : The resource operation is currently in progress.
  • SUCCESS : The resource operation has successfully completed.
  • FAILED : The resource operation has failed. Refer to the error code and status message for more information.
  • CANCEL_IN_PROGRESS : The resource operation is in the process of being canceled.
  • CANCEL_COMPLETE : The resource operation has been canceled.

EventTime -> (timestamp)

When the resource operation request was initiated.

ResourceModel -> (string)

A JSON string containing the resource model, consisting of each resource property and its current value.

StatusMessage -> (string)

Any message explaining the current status.

ErrorCode -> (string)

For requests with a status of FAILED , the associated error code.

For error code definitions, see Handler error codes in the CloudFormation Command Line Interface User Guide for Extension Development .

RetryAfter -> (timestamp)
