User Guide

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.

import-stacks-to-stack-set

Description

Import existing stacks into a new stack sets. Use the stack import operation to import up to 10 stacks into a new stack set in the same account as the source stack or in a different administrator account and Region, by specifying the stack ID of the stack you intend to import.

Note

ImportStacksToStackSet is only supported by self-managed permissions.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  import-stacks-to-stack-set
--stack-set-name <value>
--stack-ids <value>
[--operation-preferences <value>]
[--operation-id <value>]
[--call-as <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--stack-set-name (string)

The name of the stack set. The name must be unique in the Region where you create your stack set.

--stack-ids (list)

The IDs of the stacks you are importing into a stack set. You import up to 10 stacks per stack set at a time.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--operation-preferences (structure)

The user-specified preferences for how CloudFormation performs a stack set operation.

For more information on maximum concurrent accounts and failure tolerance, see Stack set operation options .

RegionConcurrencyType -> (string)

The concurrency type of deploying StackSets operations in Regions, could be in parallel or one Region at a time.

RegionOrder -> (list)

The order of the Regions in where you want to perform the stack operation.

(string)

FailureToleranceCount -> (integer)

The number of accounts, per Region, for which this operation can fail before CloudFormation stops the operation in that Region. If the operation is stopped in a Region, CloudFormation doesn't attempt the operation in any subsequent Regions.

Conditional: You must specify either FailureToleranceCount or FailureTolerancePercentage (but not both).

By default, 0 is specified.

FailureTolerancePercentage -> (integer)

The percentage of accounts, per Region, for which this stack operation can fail before CloudFormation stops the operation in that Region. If the operation is stopped in a Region, CloudFormation doesn't attempt the operation in any subsequent Regions.

When calculating the number of accounts based on the specified percentage, CloudFormation rounds down to the next whole number.

Conditional: You must specify either FailureToleranceCount or FailureTolerancePercentage , but not both.

By default, 0 is specified.

MaxConcurrentCount -> (integer)

The maximum number of accounts in which to perform this operation at one time. This is dependent on the value of FailureToleranceCount . MaxConcurrentCount is at most one more than the FailureToleranceCount .

Note that this setting lets you specify the maximum for operations. For large deployments, under certain circumstances the actual number of accounts acted upon concurrently may be lower due to service throttling.

Conditional: You must specify either MaxConcurrentCount or MaxConcurrentPercentage , but not both.

By default, 1 is specified.

MaxConcurrentPercentage -> (integer)

The maximum percentage of accounts in which to perform this operation at one time.

When calculating the number of accounts based on the specified percentage, CloudFormation rounds down to the next whole number. This is true except in cases where rounding down would result is zero. In this case, CloudFormation sets the number as one instead.

Note that this setting lets you specify the maximum for operations. For large deployments, under certain circumstances the actual number of accounts acted upon concurrently may be lower due to service throttling.

Conditional: You must specify either MaxConcurrentCount or MaxConcurrentPercentage , but not both.

By default, 1 is specified.

Shorthand Syntax:

RegionConcurrencyType=string,RegionOrder=string,string,FailureToleranceCount=integer,FailureTolerancePercentage=integer,MaxConcurrentCount=integer,MaxConcurrentPercentage=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "RegionConcurrencyType": "SEQUENTIAL"|"PARALLEL",
  "RegionOrder": ["string", ...],
  "FailureToleranceCount": integer,
  "FailureTolerancePercentage": integer,
  "MaxConcurrentCount": integer,
  "MaxConcurrentPercentage": integer
}

--operation-id (string)

A unique, user defined, identifier for the stack set operation.

--call-as (string)

By default, SELF is specified. Use SELF for stack sets with self-managed permissions.

  • If you are signed in to the management account, specify SELF .
  • For service managed stack sets, specify DELEGATED_ADMIN .

Possible values:

  • SELF
  • DELEGATED_ADMIN

--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

OperationId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the stack set operation.
