The BatchUpdateTableRows API allows you to update one or more rows in a table in a workbook.

You can specify the values to set in some or all of the columns in the table for the specified rows. If a column is not explicitly specified in a particular row, then that column will not be updated for that row. To clear out the data in a specific cell, you need to set the value as an empty string ("").

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--workbook-id <value>
--table-id <value>
--rows-to-update <value>
[--client-request-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--workbook-id (string)

The ID of the workbook where the rows are being updated.

If a workbook with the specified id could not be found, this API throws ResourceNotFoundException.

--table-id (string)

The ID of the table where the rows are being updated.

If a table with the specified id could not be found, this API throws ResourceNotFoundException.

--rows-to-update (list)

The list of rows to update in the table. Each item in this list needs to contain the row id to update along with the map of column id to cell values for each column in that row that needs to be updated. You need to specify at least one row in this list, and for each row, you need to specify at least one column to update.

Note that if one of the row or column ids in the request does not exist in the table, then the request fails and no updates are made to the table.


Data needed to create a single row in a table as part of the BatchCreateTableRows request.

rowId -> (string)

The id of the row that needs to be updated.

cellsToUpdate -> (map)

A map representing the cells to update in the given row. The key is the column id of the cell and the value is the CellInput object that represents the data to set in that cell.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

CellInput object contains the data needed to create or update cells in a table.

fact -> (string)

Fact represents the data that is entered into a cell. This data can be free text or a formula. Formulas need to start with the equals (=) sign.

Shorthand Syntax:

rowId=string,cellsToUpdate={KeyName1={fact=string},KeyName2={fact=string}} ...

JSON Syntax:

    "rowId": "string",
    "cellsToUpdate": {"string": {
          "fact": "string"

--client-request-token (string)

The request token for performing the update action. Request tokens help to identify duplicate requests. If a call times out or fails due to a transient error like a failed network connection, you can retry the call with the same request token. The service ensures that if the first call using that request token is successfully performed, the second call will not perform the action again.

Note that request tokens are valid only for a few minutes. You cannot use request tokens to dedupe requests spanning hours or days.

--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.


workbookCursor -> (long)

The updated workbook cursor after adding the new rows at the end of the table.

failedBatchItems -> (list)

The list of batch items in the request that could not be updated in the table. Each element in this list contains one item from the request that could not be updated in the table along with the reason why that item could not be updated.


A single item in a batch that failed to perform the intended action because of an error preventing it from succeeding.

id -> (string)

The id of the batch item that failed. This is the batch item id for the BatchCreateTableRows and BatchUpsertTableRows operations and the row id for the BatchUpdateTableRows and BatchDeleteTableRows operations.

errorMessage -> (string)

The error message that indicates why the batch item failed.
