create-dataset

Description

Creates a data set. A data set stores data retrieved from a data store by applying a "queryAction" (a SQL query) or a "containerAction" (executing a containerized application). This operation creates the skeleton of a data set. The data set can be populated manually by calling "CreateDatasetContent" or automatically according to a "trigger" you specify.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

--actions (list)

A list of actions that create the data set contents.

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "actionName": "string",
    "queryAction": {
      "sqlQuery": "string",
      "filters": [
        {

        ...
      ]
    }
  }
  ...
]

--triggers (list)

A list of triggers. A trigger causes data set contents to be populated at a specified time interval or when another data set's contents are created. The list of triggers can be empty or contain up to five DataSetTrigger objects.

Shorthand Syntax:

schedule={expression=string},dataset={name=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "schedule": {
      "expression": "string"
    },
    "dataset": {
      "name": "string"
    }
  }
  ...
]

--content-delivery-rules (list)

When data set contents are created they are delivered to destinations specified here.

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "entryName": "string",
    "destination": {
      "iotEventsDestinationConfiguration": {
        "inputName": "string",
        "roleArn": "string"
      },
      "s3DestinationConfiguration": {
        "bucket": "string",
        "key": "string",
        "glueConfiguration": {
          "tableName": "string",
          "databaseName": "string"
        },
        "roleArn": "string"
      }
    }
  }
  ...
]

--retention-period (structure)

[Optional] How long, in days, versions of data set contents are kept for the data set. If not specified or set to null, versions of data set contents are retained for at most 90 days. The number of versions of data set contents retained is determined by the versioningConfiguration parameter. (For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/iotanalytics/latest/userguide/getting-started.html#aws-iot-analytics-dataset-versions)

Shorthand Syntax:

unlimited=boolean,numberOfDays=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "unlimited": true|false,
  "numberOfDays": integer
}

--versioning-configuration (structure)

[Optional] How many versions of data set contents are kept. If not specified or set to null, only the latest version plus the latest succeeded version (if they are different) are kept for the time period specified by the "retentionPeriod" parameter. (For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/iotanalytics/latest/userguide/getting-started.html#aws-iot-analytics-dataset-versions)

Shorthand Syntax:

unlimited=boolean,maxVersions=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "unlimited": true|false,
  "maxVersions": integer
}

--tags (list)

Metadata which can be used to manage the data set.

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "string",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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.

Examples

To create a dataset

The following create-dataset example creates a dataset. A dataset stores data retrieved from a data store by applying a queryAction (a SQL query) or a containerAction (executing a containerized application). This operation creates the skeleton of a dataset. You can populate the dataset manually by calling CreateDatasetContent or automatically according to a trigger you specify.

aws iotanalytics create-dataset \
    --cli-input-json file://create-dataset.json

Contents of create-dataset.json:

{
    "datasetName": "mydataset",
    "actions": [
        {
            "actionName": "myDatasetAction",
            "queryAction": {
                "sqlQuery": "SELECT * FROM mydatastore"
            }
        }
    ],
    "retentionPeriod": {
        "unlimited": true
    },
    "tags": [
        {
            "key": "Environment",
            "value": "Production"
        }
    ]
}

Output:

{
    "datasetName": "mydataset",
    "retentionPeriod": {
        "unlimited": true
    },
    "datasetArn": "arn:aws:iotanalytics:us-west-2:123456789012:dataset/mydataset"
}

For more information, see CreateDataset in the AWS IoT Analytics API Reference.

Output

datasetName -> (string)

The name of the data set.

datasetArn -> (string)

The ARN of the data set.

retentionPeriod -> (structure)

How long, in days, data set contents are kept for the data set.

unlimited -> (boolean)

If true, message data is kept indefinitely.

numberOfDays -> (integer)

The number of days that message data is kept. The "unlimited" parameter must be false.
