Once you have a ruleset definition (either recommended or your own), you call this operation to evaluate the ruleset against a data source (Glue table). The evaluation computes results which you can retrieve with the GetDataQualityResult API.

--data-source (structure)

The data source (Glue table) associated with this run.

GlueTable -> (structure)

An Glue table.

DatabaseName -> (string)

A database name in the Glue Data Catalog.

TableName -> (string)

A table name in the Glue Data Catalog.

CatalogId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the Glue Data Catalog.

ConnectionName -> (string)

The name of the connection to the Glue Data Catalog.

AdditionalOptions -> (map)

Additional options for the table. Currently there are two keys supported:

  • pushDownPredicate : to filter on partitions without having to list and read all the files in your dataset.
  • catalogPartitionPredicate : to use server-side partition pruning using partition indexes in the Glue Data Catalog.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

    "ConnectionName": "string",
    "AdditionalOptions": {"string": "string"

--role (string)

An IAM role supplied to encrypt the results of the run.

--number-of-workers (integer)

--client-token (string)

Used for idempotency and is recommended to be set to a random ID (such as a UUID) to avoid creating or starting multiple instances of the same resource.

--additional-run-options (structure)

Additional run options you can specify for an evaluation run.

CloudWatchMetricsEnabled -> (boolean)

Whether or not to enable CloudWatch metrics.

ResultsS3Prefix -> (string)

JSON Syntax:

  "CloudWatchMetricsEnabled": true|false,
  "ResultsS3Prefix": "string"

--ruleset-names (list)

A list of ruleset names.



"string" "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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)
