[--cli-input-json <value>]

--catalog-id (string)

The ID of the Data Catalog where the function to be retrieved is located. If none is provided, the Amazon Web Services account ID is used by default.

--database-name (string)

The name of the catalog database where the function is located.

--function-name (string)

The name of the function.

--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.
