[ aws . events ]



Creates a new event bus within your account. This can be a custom event bus which you can use to receive events from your own custom applications and services, or it can be a partner event bus which can be matched to a partner event source.


This operation is used by AWS customers, not by SaaS partners.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--name <value>
[--event-source-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name (string)

The name of the new event bus.

The names of custom event buses can't contain the / character. You can't use the name default for a custom event bus because this name is already used for your account's default event bus.

If this is a partner event bus, the name must exactly match the name of the partner event source that this event bus is matched to. This name will include the / character.

--event-source-name (string)

If you're creating a partner event bus, this specifies the partner event source that the new event bus will be matched with.

--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.


EventBusArn -> (string)

The ARN of the new event bus.
