create-experiment-template

Description

Creates an experiment template.

To create a template, specify the following information:

  • Targets : A target can be a specific resource in your AWS environment, or one or more resources that match criteria that you specify, for example, resources that have specific tags.
  • Actions : The actions to carry out on the target. You can specify multiple actions, the duration of each action, and when to start each action during an experiment.
  • Stop conditions : If a stop condition is triggered while an experiment is running, the experiment is automatically stopped. You can define a stop condition as a CloudWatch alarm.

For more information, see the AWS Fault Injection Simulator User Guide .

Options

--client-token (string)

Unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request.

--description (string)

A description for the experiment template. Can contain up to 64 letters (A-Z and a-z).

--stop-conditions (list)

The stop conditions.

(structure)

Specifies a stop condition for an experiment template.

source -> (string)

The source for the stop condition. Specify aws:cloudwatch:alarm if the stop condition is defined by a CloudWatch alarm. Specify none if there is no stop condition.

value -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the CloudWatch alarm. This is required if the source is a CloudWatch alarm.

Shorthand Syntax:

source=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "source": "string",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--targets (map)

The targets for the experiment.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

Specifies a target for an experiment. You must specify at least one Amazon Resource Name (ARN) or at least one resource tag. You cannot specify both ARNs and tags.

resourceType -> (string)

The AWS resource type. The resource type must be supported for the specified action.

resourceArns -> (list)

The Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the resources.

(string)

The attribute path for the filter.

values -> (list)

(string)

selectionMode -> (string)

Scopes the identified resources to a specific count of the resources at random, or a percentage of the resources. All identified resources are included in the target.

  • ALL - Run the action on all identified targets. This is the default.
  • COUNT(n) - Run the action on the specified number of targets, chosen from the identified targets at random. For example, COUNT(1) selects one of the targets.
  • PERCENT(n) - Run the action on the specified percentage of targets, chosen from the identified targets at random. For example, PERCENT(25) selects 25% of the targets.

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

--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.

    --cli-input-json file://myfile.json
