[ aws . logs ]



Use this operation to suppress anomaly detection for a specified anomaly or pattern. If you suppress an anomaly, CloudWatch Logs won’t report new occurrences of that anomaly and won't update that anomaly with new data. If you suppress a pattern, CloudWatch Logs won’t report any anomalies related to that pattern.

You must specify either anomalyId or patternId , but you can't specify both parameters in the same operation.

If you have previously used this operation to suppress detection of a pattern or anomaly, you can use it again to cause CloudWatch Logs to end the suppression. To do this, use this operation and specify the anomaly or pattern to stop suppressing, and omit the suppressionType and suppressionPeriod parameters.

--anomaly-id (string)

If you are suppressing or unsuppressing an anomaly, specify its unique ID here. You can find anomaly IDs by using the ListAnomalies operation.

--pattern-id (string)

If you are suppressing or unsuppressing an pattern, specify its unique ID here. You can find pattern IDs by using the ListAnomalies operation.

--anomaly-detector-arn (string)

The ARN of the anomaly detector that this operation is to act on.

--suppression-type (string)

Use this to specify whether the suppression to be temporary or infinite. If you specify LIMITED , you must also specify a suppressionPeriod . If you specify INFINITE , any value for suppressionPeriod is ignored.

Possible values:


--suppression-period (structure)

If you are temporarily suppressing an anomaly or pattern, use this structure to specify how long the suppression is to last.

value -> (integer)

Specifies the number of seconds, minutes or hours to suppress this anomaly. There is no maximum.

suppressionUnit -> (string)

Specifies whether the value of value is in seconds, minutes, or hours.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "value": integer,
  "suppressionUnit": "SECONDS"|"MINUTES"|"HOURS"

--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.
