Description

Creates a new hardware security module (HSM) in the specified AWS CloudHSM cluster.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-hsm
--cluster-id <value>
--availability-zone <value>
[--ip-address <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--cluster-id (string)

The identifier (ID) of the HSM's cluster. To find the cluster ID, use DescribeClusters .

--availability-zone (string)

The Availability Zone where you are creating the HSM. To find the cluster's Availability Zones, use DescribeClusters .

--ip-address (string)

The HSM's IP address. If you specify an IP address, use an available address from the subnet that maps to the Availability Zone where you are creating the HSM. If you don't specify an IP address, one is chosen for you from that subnet.

--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.
