update-asset-model

Description

Updates an asset model and all of the assets that were created from the model. Each asset created from the model inherits the updated asset model's property and hierarchy definitions. For more information, see Updating assets and models in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

Warning

This operation overwrites the existing model with the provided model. To avoid deleting your asset model's properties or hierarchies, you must include their IDs and definitions in the updated asset model payload. For more information, see DescribeAssetModel .

If you remove a property from an asset model or update a property's formula expression, AWS IoT SiteWise deletes all previous data for that property. If you remove a hierarchy definition from an asset model, AWS IoT SiteWise disassociates every asset associated with that hierarchy. You can't change the type or data type of an existing property.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--asset-model-id (string)

The ID of the asset model to update.

--asset-model-name (string)

A unique, friendly name for the asset model.

--asset-model-description (string)

A description for the asset model.

--asset-model-properties (list)

The updated property definitions of the asset model. For more information, see Asset properties in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

You can specify up to 200 properties per asset model. For more information, see Quotas in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

(structure)

Contains information about an asset model property.

id -> (string)

The ID of the asset model property.

name -> (string)

The name of the asset model property.

dataType -> (string)

The data type of the asset model property.

unit -> (string)

The unit of the asset model property, such as Newtons or RPM .

type -> (structure)

The property type (see PropertyType ).

attribute -> (structure)

Specifies an asset attribute property. An attribute generally contains static information, such as the serial number of an IIoT wind turbine.

defaultValue -> (string)

The default value of the asset model property attribute. All assets that you create from the asset model contain this attribute value. You can update an attribute's value after you create an asset. For more information, see Updating attribute values in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

measurement -> (structure)

Specifies an asset measurement property. A measurement represents a device's raw sensor data stream, such as timestamped temperature values or timestamped power values.

transform -> (structure)

Specifies an asset transform property. A transform contains a mathematical expression that maps a property's data points from one form to another, such as a unit conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

expression -> (string)

The mathematical expression that defines the transformation function. You can specify up to 10 variables per expression. You can specify up to 10 functions per expression.

For more information, see Quotas in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

variables -> (list)

The list of variables used in the expression.

(structure)

Contains expression variable information.

name -> (string)

The friendly name of the variable to be used in the expression.

value -> (structure)

The variable that identifies an asset property from which to use values.

propertyId -> (string)

The ID of the property to use as the variable. You can use the property name if it's from the same asset model.

hierarchyId -> (string)

The ID of the hierarchy to query for the property ID. You can use the hierarchy's name instead of the hierarchy's ID.

You use a hierarchy ID instead of a model ID because you can have several hierarchies using the same model and therefore the same propertyId . For example, you might have separately grouped assets that come from the same asset model. For more information, see Asset hierarchies in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

metric -> (structure)

Specifies an asset metric property. A metric contains a mathematical expression that uses aggregate functions to process all input data points over a time interval and output a single data point, such as to calculate the average hourly temperature.

expression -> (string)

The mathematical expression that defines the metric aggregation function. You can specify up to 10 variables per expression. You can specify up to 10 functions per expression.

For more information, see Quotas in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

variables -> (list)

The list of variables used in the expression.

(structure)

Contains expression variable information.

name -> (string)

The friendly name of the variable to be used in the expression.

value -> (structure)

The variable that identifies an asset property from which to use values.

propertyId -> (string)

The ID of the property to use as the variable. You can use the property name if it's from the same asset model.

hierarchyId -> (string)

The ID of the hierarchy to query for the property ID. You can use the hierarchy's name instead of the hierarchy's ID.

You use a hierarchy ID instead of a model ID because you can have several hierarchies using the same model and therefore the same propertyId . For example, you might have separately grouped assets that come from the same asset model. For more information, see Asset hierarchies in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

window -> (structure)

The window (time interval) over which AWS IoT SiteWise computes the metric's aggregation expression. AWS IoT SiteWise computes one data point per window .

tumbling -> (structure)

The tumbling time interval window.

interval -> (string)

The time interval for the tumbling window. Note that w represents weeks, d represents days, h represents hours, and m represents minutes. AWS IoT SiteWise computes the 1w interval the end of Sunday at midnight each week (UTC), the 1d interval at the end of each day at midnight (UTC), the 1h interval at the end of each hour, and so on.

When AWS IoT SiteWise aggregates data points for metric computations, the start of each interval is exclusive and the end of each interval is inclusive. AWS IoT SiteWise places the computed data point at the end of the interval.

--asset-model-hierarchies (list)

The updated hierarchy definitions of the asset model. Each hierarchy specifies an asset model whose assets can be children of any other assets created from this asset model. For more information, see Asset hierarchies in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

You can specify up to 10 hierarchies per asset model. For more information, see Quotas in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

(structure)

Describes an asset hierarchy that contains a hierarchy's name, ID, and child asset model ID that specifies the type of asset that can be in this hierarchy.

id -> (string)

The ID of the asset model hierarchy. This ID is a hierarchyId .

name -> (string)

The name of the asset model hierarchy that you specify by using the CreateAssetModel or UpdateAssetModel API.

childAssetModelId -> (string)

--client-token (string)

A unique case-sensitive identifier that you can provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. Don't reuse this client token if a new idempotent request is required.

--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 update an asset model

The following update-asset-model example updates a wind farm asset model's description. This example includes the model's existing IDs and definitions, because update-asset-model overwrites the existing model with the new model.
