--table-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) associated with the table that was imported to.

--page-size (integer)

The number of ImportSummary objects returned in a single page.

--next-token (string)

An optional string that, if supplied, must be copied from the output of a previous call to ListImports . When provided in this manner, the API fetches the next page of results.

--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.
