create-table

Description

The CreateTable operation adds a new table to the specified keyspace. Within a keyspace, table names must be unique.

CreateTable is an asynchronous operation. When the request is received, the status of the table is set to CREATING . You can monitor the creation status of the new table by using the GetTable operation, which returns the current status of the table. You can start using a table when the status is ACTIVE .

For more information, see Creating tables in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--keyspace-name (string)

The name of the keyspace that the table is going to be created in.

--table-name (string)

The name of the table.

--schema-definition (structure)

The schemaDefinition consists of the following parameters.

For each column to be created:

  • name - The name of the column.
  • type - An Amazon Keyspaces data type. For more information, see Data types in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide .

The primary key of the table consists of the following columns:

  • partitionKeys - The partition key can be a single column, or it can be a compound value composed of two or more columns. The partition key portion of the primary key is required and determines how Amazon Keyspaces stores your data.
  • name - The name of each partition key column.
  • clusteringKeys - The optional clustering column portion of your primary key determines how the data is clustered and sorted within each partition.
  • name - The name of the clustering column.
  • orderBy - Sets the ascendant (ASC ) or descendant (DESC ) order modifier.

To define a column as static use staticColumns - Static columns store values that are shared by all rows in the same partition:

  • name - The name of the column.
  • type - An Amazon Keyspaces data type.

Amazon Web Services-assigned tag names and values are automatically assigned the aws: prefix, which the user cannot assign. Amazon Web Services-assigned tag names do not count towards the tag limit of 50. User-assigned tag names have the prefix user: in the Cost Allocation Report. You cannot backdate the application of a tag.

For more information, see Adding tags and labels to Amazon Keyspaces resources in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide .

--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.

Output

resourceArn -> (string)

The unique identifier of the table in the format of an Amazon Resource Name (ARN).
