test-type

Description

Tests a registered extension to make sure it meets all necessary requirements for being published in the CloudFormation registry.

  • For resource types, this includes passing all contracts tests defined for the type.
  • For modules, this includes determining if the module's model meets all necessary requirements.

For more information, see Testing your public extension prior to publishing in the CloudFormation CLI User Guide .

If you do not specify a version, CloudFormation uses the default version of the extension in your account and region for testing.

To perform testing, CloudFormation assumes the execution role specified when the type was registered. For more information, see RegisterType .

Once you've initiated testing on an extension using TestType , you can use DescribeType to monitor the current test status and test status description for the extension.

An extension must have a test status of PASSED before it can be published. For more information, see Publishing extensions to make them available for public use in the CloudFormation CLI User Guide .

Options

--arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Number (ARN) of the extension.

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

--type (string)

The type of the extension to test.

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

--version-id (string)

The version of the extension to test.

You can specify the version id with either Arn , or with TypeName and Type .

--log-delivery-bucket (string)

The S3 bucket to which CloudFormation delivers the contract test execution logs.

CloudFormation delivers the logs by the time contract testing has completed and the extension has been assigned a test type status of PASSED or FAILED .

The user calling TestType must be able to access items in the specified S3 bucket. Specifically, the user needs the following permissions:

  • GetObject
  • PutObject

For more information, see Actions, Resources, and Condition Keys for Amazon S3 in the Amazon Web Services Identity and Access Management User Guide .

--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

TypeVersionArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Number (ARN) of the extension.
