--type (string)

The wireless device type.

Possible values:

  • Sidewalk
  • LoRaWAN

--name (string)

The name of the new resource.

--description (string)

The description of the new resource.

--destination-name (string)

The name of the destination to assign to the new wireless device.

--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.

--tags (list)

The tags to attach to the new wireless device. 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 ...

--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.
