See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--name <value>
--expression-type <value>
--expression <value>
[--description <value>]
--role-arn <value>
[--tags <value>]
[--client-request-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name (string)

The name of the new resource.

--expression-type (string)

The type of value in Expression .

Possible values:

  • RuleName
  • MqttTopic

--expression (string)

The rule name or topic rule to send messages to.

--description (string)

The description of the new resource.

--role-arn (string)

The ARN of the IAM Role that authorizes the destination.

--tags (list)

The tags to attach to the new destination. Tags are metadata that you can use to manage a resource.


A simple label consisting of a customer-defined key-value pair

Key -> (string)

The tag's key value.

Value -> (string)

The tag's value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"

--client-request-token (string)

Each resource must have a unique client request token. If you try to create a new resource with the same token as a resource that already exists, an exception occurs. If you omit this value, AWS SDKs will automatically generate a unique client request.

--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.


To create an IoT wireless destination

The following create-destination example creates a destination for mapping a device message to an AWS IoT rule. Before you run this command, you must have created an IAM role that gives AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN the permissions necessary to send data to the AWS IoT rule.

aws iotwireless create-destination \
    --name IoTWirelessDestination \
    --expression-type RuleName \
    --expression IoTWirelessRule \
    --role-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/IoTWirelessDestinationRole


    "Arn": "arn:aws:iotwireless:us-east-1:123456789012:Destination/IoTWirelessDestination",
    "Name": "IoTWirelessDestination"

For more information, see Add destinations to AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN in the AWS IoT Developers Guide.


Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name of the new resource.

Name -> (string)

The name of the new resource.
