update-thing-group

Description

Update a thing group.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  update-thing-group
--thing-group-name <value>
--thing-group-properties <value>
[--expected-version <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--thing-group-name (string)

The thing group to update.

--thing-group-properties (structure)

The thing group properties.

Shorthand Syntax:

thingGroupDescription=string,attributePayload={attributes={KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string},merge=boolean}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "thingGroupDescription": "string",
  "attributePayload": {
    "attributes": {"string": "string"
      ...},
    "merge": true|false
  }
}

--expected-version (long)

The expected version of the thing group. If this does not match the version of the thing group being updated, the update will fail.

--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.
