[ aws . kinesisanalyticsv2 ]



Adds a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) configuration to the application. Applications can use VPCs to store and access resources securely.

Note the following about VPC configurations for Kinesis Data Analytics applications:

  • VPC configurations are not supported for SQL applications.
  • When a VPC is added to a Kinesis Data Analytics application, the application can no longer be accessed from the Internet directly. To enable Internet access to the application, add an Internet gateway to your VPC.

--application-name <value>

[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--application-name (string)

The name of an existing application.

--current-application-version-id (long)

The version of the application to which you want to add the input processing configuration. You can use the DescribeApplication operation to get the current application version. If the version specified is not the current version, the ConcurrentModificationException is returned.

--vpc-configuration (structure)

Description of the VPC to add to the application.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "SubnetIds": ["string", ...],
  "SecurityGroupIds": ["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.
