[ aws . iot ]



Creates a stream for delivering one or more large files in chunks over MQTT. A stream transports data bytes in chunks or blocks packaged as MQTT messages from a source like S3. You can have one or more files associated with a stream. The total size of a file associated with the stream cannot exceed more than 2 MB. The stream will be created with version 0. If a stream is created with the same streamID as a stream that existed and was deleted within last 90 days, we will resurrect that old stream by incrementing the version by 1.

--stream-id (string)

The stream ID.

--description (string)

A description of the stream.

--files (list)

The files to stream.

Shorthand Syntax:

fileId=integer,s3Location={bucket=string,key=string,version=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

    "fileId": integer,
    "s3Location": {
      "bucket": "string",
      "key": "string",
      "version": "string"

--role-arn (string)

An IAM role that allows the IoT service principal assumes to access your S3 files.

--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.
