[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--directory-id (string)

The identifier of the directory.

--next-token (string)

A token for requesting another page of certificates if the NextToken response element indicates that more certificates are available. Use the value of the returned NextToken element in your request until the token comes back as null . Pass null if this is the first call.

--limit (integer)

The number of items that should show up on one page

--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.
