[ aws . clouddirectory ]

create-index

Description

Creates an index object. See Indexing and search for more information.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-index
--directory-arn <value>
--ordered-indexed-attribute-list <value>
--is-unique | --no-is-unique
[--parent-reference <value>]
[--link-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--directory-arn (string)

The ARN of the directory where the index should be created.

--ordered-indexed-attribute-list (list)

Specifies the attributes that should be indexed on. Currently only a single attribute is supported.

(structure)

A unique identifier for an attribute.

SchemaArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the schema that contains the facet and attribute.

FacetName -> (string)

The name of the facet that the attribute exists within.

Name -> (string)

The name of the attribute.

Shorthand Syntax:

SchemaArn=string,FacetName=string,Name=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "SchemaArn": "string",
    "FacetName": "string",
    "Name": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--is-unique | --no-is-unique (boolean)

Indicates whether the attribute that is being indexed has unique values or not.

--parent-reference (structure)

A reference to the parent object that contains the index object.

Selector -> (string)

A path selector supports easy selection of an object by the parent/child links leading to it from the directory root. Use the link names from each parent/child link to construct the path. Path selectors start with a slash (/) and link names are separated by slashes. For more information about paths, see Access Objects . You can identify an object in one of the following ways:

  • $ObjectIdentifier - An object identifier is an opaque string provided by Amazon Cloud Directory. When creating objects, the system will provide you with the identifier of the created object. An object’s identifier is immutable and no two objects will ever share the same object identifier
  • /some/path - Identifies the object based on path
  • #SomeBatchReference - Identifies the object in a batch call

Shorthand Syntax:

Selector=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Selector": "string"
}

--link-name (string)

The name of the link between the parent object and the index object.

--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.

Output

ObjectIdentifier -> (string)

The ObjectIdentifier of the index created by this operation.
