See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-task
--task-arn <value>
[--options <value>]
[--excludes <value>]
[--schedule <value>]
[--name <value>]
[--cloud-watch-log-group-arn <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]

Options

--task-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource name of the task to update.

--options (structure)

Represents the options that are available to control the behavior of a StartTaskExecution operation. Behavior includes preserving metadata such as user ID (UID), group ID (GID), and file permissions, and also overwriting files in the destination, data integrity verification, and so on.

A task has a set of default options associated with it. If you don't specify an option in StartTaskExecution , the default value is used. You can override the defaults options on each task execution by specifying an overriding Options value to StartTaskExecution .

Shorthand Syntax:

VerifyMode=string,OverwriteMode=string,Atime=string,Mtime=string,Uid=string,Gid=string,PreserveDeletedFiles=string,PreserveDevices=string,PosixPermissions=string,BytesPerSecond=long,TaskQueueing=string,LogLevel=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "VerifyMode": "POINT_IN_TIME_CONSISTENT"|"ONLY_FILES_TRANSFERRED"|"NONE",
  "OverwriteMode": "ALWAYS"|"NEVER",
  "Atime": "NONE"|"BEST_EFFORT",
  "Mtime": "NONE"|"PRESERVE",
  "Uid": "NONE"|"INT_VALUE"|"NAME"|"BOTH",
  "Gid": "NONE"|"INT_VALUE"|"NAME"|"BOTH",
  "PreserveDeletedFiles": "PRESERVE"|"REMOVE",
  "PreserveDevices": "NONE"|"PRESERVE",
  "PosixPermissions": "NONE"|"PRESERVE",
  "BytesPerSecond": long,
  "TaskQueueing": "ENABLED"|"DISABLED",
  "LogLevel": "OFF"|"BASIC"|"TRANSFER"
}

--excludes (list)

A list of filter rules that determines which files to exclude from a task. The list should contain a single filter string that consists of the patterns to exclude. The patterns are delimited by "|" (that is, a pipe), for example: "/folder1|/folder2"

Shorthand Syntax:

FilterType=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "FilterType": "SIMPLE_PATTERN",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--schedule (structure)

Specifies a schedule used to periodically transfer files from a source to a destination location. You can configure your task to execute hourly, daily, weekly or on specific days of the week. You control when in the day or hour you want the task to execute. The time you specify is UTC time. For more information, see task-scheduling .

Shorthand Syntax:

ScheduleExpression=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "ScheduleExpression": "string"
}

--name (string)

The name of the task to update.

--cloud-watch-log-group-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource name of the CloudWatch LogGroup.

--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.
