Options

--attachment (structure)

Information about the interface attachment. If modifying the delete on termination attribute, you must specify the ID of the interface attachment.

AttachmentId -> (string)

The ID of the network interface attachment.

DeleteOnTermination -> (boolean)

Indicates whether the network interface is deleted when the instance is terminated.

Shorthand Syntax:

AttachmentId=string,DeleteOnTermination=boolean

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AttachmentId": "string",
  "DeleteOnTermination": true|false
}

--description (structure)

A description for the network interface.

Value -> (string)

The attribute value. The value is case-sensitive.

--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 .

--groups (list)

Changes the security groups for the network interface. The new set of groups you specify replaces the current set. You must specify at least one group, even if it's just the default security group in the VPC. You must specify the ID of the security group, not the name.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--network-interface-id (string)

The ID of the network interface.

--source-dest-check | --no-source-dest-check (structure)

Enable or disable source/destination checks, which ensure that the instance is either the source or the destination of any traffic that it receives. If the value is true , source/destination checks are enabled; otherwise, they are disabled. The default value is true . You must disable source/destination checks if the instance runs services such as network address translation, routing, or firewalls.

Value -> (boolean)

The attribute value. The valid values are true or false .

--ena-srd-specification (structure)

Updates the ENA Express configuration for the network interface that’s attached to the instance.

EnaSrdEnabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether ENA Express is enabled for the network interface.

EnaSrdUdpSpecification -> (structure)

Configures ENA Express for UDP network traffic.

EnaSrdUdpEnabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether UDP traffic uses ENA Express. To specify this setting, you must first enable ENA Express.

Shorthand Syntax:

EnaSrdEnabled=boolean,EnaSrdUdpSpecification={EnaSrdUdpEnabled=boolean}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "EnaSrdEnabled": true|false,
  "EnaSrdUdpSpecification": {
    "EnaSrdUdpEnabled": true|false
  }
}

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
