--datastore-name (string)

The name of the data store to be updated.

--retention-period (structure)

How long, in days, message data is kept for the data store. The retention period cannot be updated if the data store's S3 storage is customer-managed.

JSON Syntax:

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

--datastore-storage (structure)

Where data store data is stored. You may choose one of "serviceManagedS3" or "customerManagedS3" storage. If not specified, the default is "serviceManagedS3". This cannot be changed after the data store is created.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "serviceManagedS3": {

  "customerManagedS3": {
    "bucket": "string",
    "keyPrefix": "string",
    "roleArn": "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.
