JSON Syntax:

  "ReportName": "string",
  "TimeUnit": "HOURLY"|"DAILY",
  "Format": "textORcsv",
  "Compression": "ZIP"|"GZIP",
  "AdditionalSchemaElements": ["RESOURCES", ...],
  "S3Bucket": "string",
  "S3Prefix": "string",
  "S3Region": "us-east-1"|"us-west-1"|"us-west-2"|"eu-central-1"|"eu-west-1"|"ap-southeast-1"|"ap-southeast-2"|"ap-northeast-1",
  "AdditionalArtifacts": ["REDSHIFT"|"QUICKSIGHT", ...]

--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.
