Creates a deployment. ''CreateDeployment'' requests are idempotent with respect to the ''X-Amzn-Client-Token'' token and the request parameters.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--amzn-client-token <value>]
[--deployment-id <value>]
--deployment-type <value>
--group-id <value>
[--group-version-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--amzn-client-token (string) A client token used to correlate requests and responses.

--deployment-id (string) The ID of the deployment if you wish to redeploy a previous deployment.

--deployment-type (string) The type of deployment. When used for ''CreateDeployment'', only ''NewDeployment'' and ''Redeployment'' are valid.

Possible values:

  • NewDeployment
  • Redeployment
  • ResetDeployment
  • ForceResetDeployment

--group-id (string) The ID of the Greengrass group.

--group-version-id (string) The ID of the group version to be deployed.

--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.
