--editor-id (string)

The unique identifier of the EMR Notebook to use for notebook execution.

--relative-path (string)

The path and file name of the notebook file for this execution, relative to the path specified for the EMR Notebook. For example, if you specify a path of s3://MyBucket/MyNotebooks when you create an EMR Notebook for a notebook with an ID of e-ABCDEFGHIJK1234567890ABCD (the EditorID of this request), and you specify a RelativePath of my_notebook_executions/notebook_execution.ipynb , the location of the file for the notebook execution is s3://MyBucket/MyNotebooks/e-ABCDEFGHIJK1234567890ABCD/my_notebook_executions/notebook_execution.ipynb .

--notebook-execution-name (string)

An optional name for the notebook execution.

--notebook-params (string)

Input parameters in JSON format passed to the EMR Notebook at runtime for execution.

--execution-engine (structure)

Specifies the execution engine (cluster) that runs the notebook execution.

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier of the execution engine. For an EMR cluster, this is the cluster ID.

Type -> (string)

The type of execution engine. A value of EMR specifies an EMR cluster.

MasterInstanceSecurityGroupId -> (string)

An optional unique ID of an EC2 security group to associate with the master instance of the EMR cluster for this notebook execution. For more information see Specifying EC2 Security Groups for EMR Notebooks in the EMR Management Guide .

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Id": "string",
  "Type": "EMR",
  "MasterInstanceSecurityGroupId": "string"

--service-role (string)

The name or ARN of the IAM role that is used as the service role for Amazon EMR (the EMR role) for the notebook execution.

--notebook-instance-security-group-id (string)

The unique identifier of the Amazon EC2 security group to associate with the EMR Notebook for this notebook execution.

--tags (list)

A list of tags associated with a notebook execution. Tags are user-defined key-value pairs that consist of a required key string with a maximum of 128 characters and an optional value string with a maximum of 256 characters.


A key-value pair containing user-defined metadata that you can associate with an Amazon EMR resource. Tags make it easier to associate clusters in various ways, such as grouping clusters to track your Amazon EMR resource allocation costs. For more information, see Tag Clusters .

Key -> (string)

A user-defined key, which is the minimum required information for a valid tag. For more information, see Tag .

Value -> (string)

A user-defined value, which is optional in a tag. For more information, see Tag Clusters .

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"

--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
