--virtual-gateway-id (string)

The ID of the virtual private gateway.

--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.

Examples

To associate a virtual private gateway with a Direct Connect gateway

The following example associates virtual private gateway vgw-6efe725e with Direct Connect gateway 5f294f92-bafb-4011-916d-9b0bexample. You must run the command in the region in which the virtual private gateway is located.

Command:

aws directconnect create-direct-connect-gateway-association --direct-connect-gateway-id 5f294f92-bafb-4011-916d-9b0bexample --virtual-gateway-id vgw-6efe725e

Output:

{
  "directConnectGatewayAssociation": {
      "associationState": "associating",
      "virtualGatewayOwnerAccount": "123456789012",
      "directConnectGatewayId": "5f294f92-bafb-4011-916d-9b0bexample",
      "virtualGatewayId": "vgw-6efe725e",
      "virtualGatewayRegion": "us-east-2"
