create-license-configuration

Description

Creates a license configuration.

A license configuration is an abstraction of a customer license agreement that can be consumed and enforced by License Manager. Components include specifications for the license type (licensing by instance, socket, CPU, or vCPU), allowed tenancy (shared tenancy, Dedicated Instance, Dedicated Host, or all of these), license affinity to host (how long a license must be associated with a host), and the number of licenses purchased and used.

Options

--name (string)

Name of the license configuration.

--description (string)

Description of the license configuration.

--license-counting-type (string)

Dimension used to track the license inventory.

Possible values:

  • vCPU
  • Instance
  • Core
  • Socket

--license-count (long)

Number of licenses managed by the license configuration.

--license-count-hard-limit | --no-license-count-hard-limit (boolean)

Indicates whether hard or soft license enforcement is used. Exceeding a hard limit blocks the launch of new instances.

--license-rules (list)

License rules. The syntax is #name=value (for example, #allowedTenancy=EC2-DedicatedHost). The available rules vary by dimension, as follows.

  • Sockets dimension: allowedTenancy | licenseAffinityToHost | maximumSockets | minimumSockets
  • vCPUs dimension: allowedTenancy | honorVcpuOptimization | maximumVcpus | minimumVcpus

The unit for licenseAffinityToHost is days and the range is 1 to 180. The possible values for allowedTenancy are EC2-Default , EC2-DedicatedHost , and EC2-DedicatedInstance . The possible values for honorVcpuOptimization are True and False .

Describes product information for a license configuration.

ResourceType -> (string)

Resource type. The possible values are SSM_MANAGED | RDS .

ProductInformationFilterList -> (list)

A Product information filter consists of a ProductInformationFilterComparator which is a logical operator, a ProductInformationFilterName which specifies the type of filter being declared, and a ProductInformationFilterValue that specifies the value to filter on.

Accepted values for ProductInformationFilterName are listed here along with descriptions and valid options for ProductInformationFilterComparator .

The following filters and are supported when the resource type is SSM_MANAGED :

  • Application Name - The name of the application. Logical operator is EQUALS .
  • Application Publisher - The publisher of the application. Logical operator is EQUALS .
  • Application Version - The version of the application. Logical operator is EQUALS .
  • Platform Name - The name of the platform. Logical operator is EQUALS .
  • Platform Type - The platform type. Logical operator is EQUALS .
  • Tag:key - The key of a tag attached to an Amazon Web Services resource you wish to exclude from automated discovery. Logical operator is NOT_EQUALS . The key for your tag must be appended to Tag: following the example: Tag:name-of-your-key . ProductInformationFilterValue is optional if you are not using values for the key.
  • AccountId - The 12-digit ID of an Amazon Web Services account you wish to exclude from automated discovery. Logical operator is NOT_EQUALS .
  • License Included - The type of license included. Logical operators are EQUALS and NOT_EQUALS . Possible values are: sql-server-enterprise | sql-server-standard | sql-server-web | windows-server-datacenter .

The following filters and logical operators are supported when the resource type is RDS :

  • Engine Edition - The edition of the database engine. Logical operator is EQUALS . Possible values are: oracle-ee | oracle-se | oracle-se1 | oracle-se2 .
  • License Pack - The license pack. Logical operator is EQUALS . Possible values are: data guard | diagnostic pack sqlt | tuning pack sqlt | ols | olap .

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To create a license configuration

The following create-license-configuration example creates a license configuration with a hard limit of 10 cores.

aws license-manager create-license-configuration --name my-license-configuration \
    --license-counting-type Core \
    --license-count 10 \
    --license-count-hard-limit

Output:

{
  "LicenseConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:license-manager:us-west-2:123456789012:license-configuration:lic-6eb6586f508a786a2ba41EXAMPLE1111"
}

Example 2: To create a license configuration

The following create-license-configuration example creates a license configuration with a soft limit of 100 vCPUs. It uses a rule to enable vCPU optimization.

aws license-manager create-license-configuration --name my-license-configuration
    --license-counting-type vCPU \
    --license-count 100 \
    --license-rules "#honorVcpuOptimization=true"

Output:

{
  "LicenseConfigurationArn": "arn:aws:license-manager:us-west-2:123456789012:license-configuration:lic-6eb6586f508a786a2ba41EXAMPLE2222"
}

Output

LicenseConfigurationArn -> (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the license configuration.
