create-assessment-target

Description

Creates a new assessment target using the ARN of the resource group that is generated by CreateResourceGroup . If resourceGroupArn is not specified, all EC2 instances in the current AWS account and region are included in the assessment target. If the service-linked role isn’t already registered, this action also creates and registers a service-linked role to grant Amazon Inspector access to AWS Services needed to perform security assessments. You can create up to 50 assessment targets per AWS account. You can run up to 500 concurrent agents per AWS account. For more information, see Amazon Inspector Assessment Targets .

Options

--assessment-target-name (string)

The user-defined name that identifies the assessment target that you want to create. The name must be unique within the AWS account.

--resource-group-arn (string)

The ARN that specifies the resource group that is used to create the assessment target. If resourceGroupArn is not specified, all EC2 instances in the current AWS account and region are included in the assessment target.

--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.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.
