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 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

    "FacetName": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--object-attribute-list (list)

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

Shorthand 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.
