[ aws . clouddirectory ]

create-object

Description

Creates an object in a Directory . Additionally attaches the object to a parent, if a parent reference and LinkName is specified. An object is simply a collection of Facet attributes. You can also use this API call to create a policy object, if the facet from which you create the object is a policy facet.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-object
--directory-arn <value>
--schema-facets <value>
[--object-attribute-list <value>]
[--parent-reference <value>]
[--link-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--directory-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that is associated with the Directory in which the object will be created. For more information, see arns .

--schema-facets (list)

A list of schema facets to be associated with the object. Do not provide minor version components. See SchemaFacet for details.

(structure)

A facet.

SchemaArn -> (string)

The ARN of the schema that contains the facet with no minor component. See arns and In-Place Schema Upgrade for a description of when to provide minor versions.

FacetName -> (string)

The name of the facet.

Shorthand Syntax:

SchemaArn=string,FacetName=string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--object-attribute-list (list)

The attribute map whose attribute ARN contains the key and attribute value as the map value.

(structure)

The combination of an attribute key and an attribute value.

Key -> (structure)

The key of the 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.

Value -> (structure)

The value of the attribute.

StringValue -> (string)

A string data value.

BinaryValue -> (blob)

A binary data value.

BooleanValue -> (boolean)

A Boolean data value.

NumberValue -> (string)

A number data value.

DatetimeValue -> (timestamp)

A date and time value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key={SchemaArn=string,FacetName=string,Name=string},Value={StringValue=string,BinaryValue=blob,BooleanValue=boolean,NumberValue=string,DatetimeValue=timestamp} ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": {
      "SchemaArn": "string",
      "FacetName": "string",
      "Name": "string"
    },
    "Value": {
      "StringValue": "string",
      "BinaryValue": blob,
      "BooleanValue": true|false,
      "NumberValue": "string",
      "DatetimeValue": timestamp
    }
  }
  ...
]

--parent-reference (structure)

If specified, the parent reference to which this object will be attached.

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 link that is used to attach this object to a parent.

--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 identifier that is associated with the object.
