Options

--disk-name (string)

The unique Lightsail disk name (e.g., my-disk ).

--availability-zone (string)

The Availability Zone where you want to create the disk (e.g., us-east-2a ). Use the same Availability Zone as the Lightsail instance to which you want to attach the disk.

Use the get regions operation to list the Availability Zones where Lightsail is currently available.

--size-in-gb (integer)

The size of the disk in GB (e.g., 32 ).

--tags (list)

The tag keys and optional values to add to the resource during create.

Use the TagResource action to tag a resource after it's created.

(structure)

Describes a tag key and optional value assigned to an Amazon Lightsail resource.

For more information about tags in Lightsail, see the Amazon Lightsail Developer Guide .

key -> (string)

The key of the tag.

Constraints: Tag keys accept a maximum of 128 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Constraints: Tag values accept a maximum of 256 letters, numbers, spaces in UTF-8, or the following characters: + - = . _ : / @

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "key": "string",
    "value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--add-ons (list)

An array of objects that represent the add-ons to enable for the new disk.

(structure)

Describes a request to enable, modify, or disable an add-on for an Amazon Lightsail resource.

Note

An additional cost may be associated with enabling add-ons. For more information, see the Lightsail pricing page .

addOnType -> (string)

The add-on type.

autoSnapshotAddOnRequest -> (structure)

An object that represents additional parameters when enabling or modifying the automatic snapshot add-on.

snapshotTimeOfDay -> (string)

The daily time when an automatic snapshot will be created.

Constraints:

  • Must be in HH:00 format, and in an hourly increment.
  • Specified in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
  • The snapshot will be automatically created between the time specified and up to 45 minutes after.

Shorthand Syntax:

addOnType=string,autoSnapshotAddOnRequest={snapshotTimeOfDay=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "addOnType": "AutoSnapshot",
    "autoSnapshotAddOnRequest": {
      "snapshotTimeOfDay": "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.

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.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--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)

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

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 .

To create a block storage disk

The following create-disk example creates a block storage disk Disk-1 in the specified AWS Region and Availability Zone, with 32 GB of storage space.

aws lightsail create-disk \
    --disk-name Disk-1 \
    --availability-zone us-west-2a \
    --size-in-gb 32
