--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.

  • SITEWISE_DEFAULT_STORAGE – IoT SiteWise saves your data into the hot tier. The hot tier is a service-managed database.
  • MULTI_LAYER_STORAGE – IoT SiteWise saves your data in both the cold tier and the hot tier. The cold tier is a customer-managed Amazon S3 bucket.

multiLayerStorage -> (structure)

Contains information about the storage destination.

customerManagedS3Storage -> (structure)

For more information, see Data streams in the IoT SiteWise User Guide .

retentionPeriod -> (structure)

The number of days your data is kept in the hot tier. By default, your data is kept indefinitely in the hot tier.

numberOfDays -> (integer)

The number of days that your data is kept.


If you specified a value for this parameter, the unlimited parameter must be false .
