--field-level-encryption-profile-config (structure)

The request to create a field-level encryption profile.

JSON Syntax:

  "Name": "string",
  "CallerReference": "string",
  "Comment": "string",
  "EncryptionEntities": {
    "Quantity": integer,
    "Items": [
        "PublicKeyId": "string",
        "ProviderId": "string",
        "FieldPatterns": {
          "Quantity": integer,
          "Items": ["string", ...]

--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.


FieldLevelEncryptionProfile -> (structure)

Returned when you create a new field-level encryption profile.

Id -> (string)

The ID for a field-level encryption profile configuration which includes a set of profiles that specify certain selected data fields to be encrypted by specific public keys.

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

The last time the field-level encryption profile was updated.

FieldLevelEncryptionProfileConfig -> (structure)

A complex data type that includes the profile name and the encryption entities for the field-level encryption profile.

Name -> (string)

Profile name for the field-level encryption profile.

CallerReference -> (string)

A unique number that ensures that the request can't be replayed.

Comment -> (string)

An optional comment for the field-level encryption profile.

EncryptionEntities -> (structure)

A complex data type of encryption entities for the field-level encryption profile that include the public key ID, provider, and field patterns for specifying which fields to encrypt with this key.

Quantity -> (integer)

Number of field pattern items in a field-level encryption content type-profile mapping.

Items -> (list)

An array of field patterns in a field-level encryption content type-profile mapping.


Complex data type for field-level encryption profiles that includes the encryption key and field pattern specifications.

PublicKeyId -> (string)

The public key associated with a set of field-level encryption patterns, to be used when encrypting the fields that match the patterns.

ProviderId -> (string)

The provider associated with the public key being used for encryption. This value must also be provided with the private key for applications to be able to decrypt data.

FieldPatterns -> (structure)

Field patterns in a field-level encryption content type profile specify the fields that you want to be encrypted. You can provide the full field name, or any beginning characters followed by a wildcard (*). You can't overlap field patterns. For example, you can't have both ABC* and AB*. Note that field patterns are case-sensitive.

Quantity -> (integer)

The number of field-level encryption field patterns.

Items -> (list)

An array of the field-level encryption field patterns.


Location -> (string)

The fully qualified URI of the new profile resource just created. For example: .

ETag -> (string)

The current version of the field level encryption profile. For example: E2QWRUHAPOMQZL .
