--group-name (string)

The name of the Availability Zone group, Local Zone group, or Wavelength Zone group.

--opt-in-status (string)

Indicates whether you are opted in to the Local Zone group or Wavelength Zone group. The only valid value is opted-in . You must contact Amazon Web Services Support to opt out of a Local Zone or Wavelength Zone group.

Possible values:

  • opted-in
  • not-opted-in

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--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.
