[ aws . clouddirectory ]



Creates a new schema in a development state. A schema can exist in three phases:

  • Development: This is a mutable phase of the schema. All new schemas are in the development phase. Once the schema is finalized, it can be published.
  • Published: Published schemas are immutable and have a version associated with them.
  • Applied: Applied schemas are mutable in a way that allows you to add new schema facets. You can also add new, nonrequired attributes to existing schema facets. You can apply only published schemas to directories.

--name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name (string)

The name that is associated with the schema. This is unique to each account and in each region.

--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.


SchemaArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that is associated with the schema. For more information, see arns .
