JSON Syntax:

  "summary": "string",
  "status": "Approved"|"Rejected"

--token (string)

The system-generated token used to identify a unique approval request. The token for each open approval request can be obtained using the GetPipelineState action. It is used to validate that the approval request corresponding to this token is still valid.

--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.


approvedAt -> (timestamp)

The timestamp showing when the approval or rejection was submitted.
