Options

--server-hostname (string)

Specifies the domain name or IP address of the object storage server. A DataSync agent uses this hostname to mount the object storage server in a network.

--server-port (integer)

Specifies the port that your object storage server accepts inbound network traffic on (for example, port 443).

--server-protocol (string)

Specifies the protocol that your object storage server uses to communicate.

Possible values:

  • HTTPS
  • HTTP

--subdirectory (string)

Specifies the object prefix for your object storage server. If this is a source location, DataSync only copies objects with this prefix. If this is a destination location, DataSync writes all objects with this prefix.

--bucket-name (string)

Specifies the name of the object storage bucket involved in the transfer.

--access-key (string)

Specifies the access key (for example, a user name) if credentials are required to authenticate with the object storage server.

--secret-key (string)

Specifies the secret key (for example, a password) if credentials are required to authenticate with the object storage server.

--agent-arns (list)

Specifies the Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the DataSync agents that can securely connect with your location.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

Specifies the key-value pair that represents a tag that you want to add to the resource. Tags can help you manage, filter, and search for your resources. We recommend creating a name tag for your location.

(structure)

Represents a single entry in a list of Amazon Web Services resource tags. TagListEntry returns an array that contains a list of tasks when the ListTagsForResource operation is called.

Key -> (string)

The key for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

Value -> (string)

The value for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "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.

Output

LocationArn -> (string)

Specifies the ARN of the object storage system location that you create.
