Description

Specifies the configuration data for a registered CloudFormation extension, in the given account and region.

To view the current configuration data for an extension, refer to the ConfigurationSchema element of DescribeType . For more information, see Configuring extensions at the account level in the CloudFormation User Guide .

Warning

It's strongly recommended that you use dynamic references to restrict sensitive configuration definitions, such as third-party credentials. For more details on dynamic references, see Using dynamic references to specify template values in the CloudFormation User Guide .

Options

--type-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the extension, in this account and region.

For public extensions, this will be the ARN assigned when you activate the type in this account and region. For private extensions, this will be the ARN assigned when you register the type in this account and region.

Do not include the extension versions suffix at the end of the ARN. You can set the configuration for an extension, but not for a specific extension version.

--configuration (string)

The configuration data for the extension, in this account and region.

The configuration data must be formatted as JSON, and validate against the schema returned in the ConfigurationSchema response element of API_DescribeType . For more information, see Defining account-level configuration data for an extension in the CloudFormation CLI User Guide .

--configuration-alias (string)

An alias by which to refer to this extension configuration data.

Conditional: Specifying a configuration alias is required when setting a configuration for a resource type extension.

--type-name (string)

The name of the extension.

Conditional: You must specify ConfigurationArn , or Type and TypeName .

--type (string)

The type of extension.

Conditional: You must specify ConfigurationArn , or Type and TypeName .

Possible values:

  • RESOURCE
  • MODULE
  • HOOK

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To configure data

The following set-type-configuration example specifies the configuration data for a registered CloudFormation extension, in the given account and Region.

aws cloudformation set-type-configuration \
    --region us-west-2 \
    --type RESOURCE \
    --type-name Example::Test::Type \
    --configuration-alias default \
    --configuration "{\"CredentialKey\": \"testUserCredential\"}"

Output:

{
    "ConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:cloudformation:us-west-2:123456789012:type-configuration/resource/Example-Test-Type/default"
}

For more information, see Using the AWS CloudFormation registry in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

Output

ConfigurationArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the configuration data, in this account and region.

Conditional: You must specify ConfigurationArn , or Type and TypeName .
