--email-address (string)

The email address of the user that you want to register. The email address serves as a uniquer identifier for each user and cannot be changed after it's created.

--type (string)

The option to indicate the type of user. Use one of the following options to specify this parameter:

  • SUPER_USER – A user with permission to all the functionality and data in FinSpace.
  • APP_USER – A user with specific permissions in FinSpace. The users are assigned permissions by adding them to a permission group.

Possible values:


--first-name (string)

The first name of the user that you want to register.

--last-name (string)

The last name of the user that you want to register.

--api-access (string)

The option to indicate whether the user can use the GetProgrammaticAccessCredentials API to obtain credentials that can then be used to access other FinSpace Data API operations.

  • ENABLED – The user has permissions to use the APIs.
  • DISABLED – The user does not have permissions to use any APIs.

Possible values:


--api-access-principal-arn (string)

The ARN identifier of an AWS user or role that is allowed to call the GetProgrammaticAccessCredentials API to obtain a credentials token for a specific FinSpace user. This must be an IAM role within your FinSpace account.

--client-token (string)

A token that ensures idempotency. This token expires in 10 minutes.

--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.
