[ aws . grafana ]



Creates a service account for the workspace. A service account can be used to call Grafana HTTP APIs, and run automated workloads. After creating the service account with the correct GrafanaRole for your use case, use CreateWorkspaceServiceAccountToken to create a token that can be used to authenticate and authorize Grafana HTTP API calls.

You can only create service accounts for workspaces that are compatible with Grafana version 9 and above.


For more information about service accounts, see Service accounts in the Amazon Managed Grafana User Guide .

For more information about the Grafana HTTP APIs, see Using Grafana HTTP APIs in the Amazon Managed Grafana User Guide .

--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.
