[ aws . ds ]

create-alias

Description

Creates an alias for a directory and assigns the alias to the directory. The alias is used to construct the access URL for the directory, such as http://alias.awsapps.com .

Warning

After an alias has been created, it cannot be deleted or reused, so this operation should only be used when absolutely necessary.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-alias
--directory-id <value>
--alias <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--directory-id (string)

The identifier of the directory for which to create the alias.

--alias (string)

The requested alias.

The alias must be unique amongst all aliases in AWS. This operation throws an EntityAlreadyExistsException error if the alias already exists.

--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

DirectoryId -> (string)

The identifier of the directory.

Alias -> (string)

The alias for the directory.
