--description (string)

The description of the audit suppression.

--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.


To update an audit finding suppression

The following update-audit-suppression example updates an audit finding suppression's expiration date to 2020-09-21.

aws iot update-audit-suppression \
    --resource-identifier deviceCertificateId=c7691e<shortened> \
    --no-suppress-indefinitely \
    --expiration-date 2020-09-21

This command produces no output.
