  • KAFKA - Designates a connection to an Apache Kafka streaming platform.
  • MONGODB - Designates a connection to a MongoDB document database.

SFTP is not supported.

MatchCriteria -> (list)

A list of criteria that can be used in selecting this connection.

(string)

ConnectionProperties -> (map)

These key-value pairs define parameters for the connection.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

PhysicalConnectionRequirements -> (structure)

A map of physical connection requirements, such as virtual private cloud (VPC) and SecurityGroup , that are needed to successfully make this connection.

SubnetId -> (string)

The subnet ID used by the connection.

SecurityGroupIdList -> (list)

The security group ID list used by the connection.

(string)

AvailabilityZone -> (string)

The connection's Availability Zone. This field is redundant because the specified subnet implies the Availability Zone to be used. Currently the field must be populated, but it will be deprecated in the future.

Shorthand Syntax:

Name=string,Description=string,ConnectionType=string,MatchCriteria=string,string,ConnectionProperties={KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string},PhysicalConnectionRequirements={SubnetId=string,SecurityGroupIdList=[string,string],AvailabilityZone=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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
