--apply-during-maintenance-window | --no-apply-during-maintenance-window (boolean)

Indicates whether to update the runtime environment during the maintenance window. The default is false. Currently, Amazon Web Services Mainframe Modernization accepts the engineVersion parameter only if applyDuringMaintenanceWindow is true. If any parameter other than engineVersion is provided in UpdateEnvironmentRequest , it will fail if applyDuringMaintenanceWindow is set to true.

--desired-capacity (integer)

The desired capacity for the runtime environment to update. The minimum possible value is 0 and the maximum is 100.

--engine-version (string)

The version of the runtime engine for the runtime environment.

--environment-id (string)

The unique identifier of the runtime environment that you want to update.

--force-update | --no-force-update (boolean)

Forces the updates on the environment. This option is needed if the applications in the environment are not stopped or if there are ongoing application-related activities in the environment.

If you use this option, be aware that it could lead to data corruption in the applications, and that you might need to perform repair and recovery procedures for the applications.

This option is not needed if the attribute being updated is preferredMaintenanceWindow .

--instance-type (string)

The instance type for the runtime environment to update.

--preferred-maintenance-window (string)

Configures the maintenance window that you want for the runtime environment. The maintenance window must have the format ddd:hh24:mi-ddd:hh24:mi and must be less than 24 hours. The following two examples are valid maintenance windows: sun:23:45-mon:00:15 or sat:01:00-sat:03:00 .

If you do not provide a value, a random system-generated value will be assigned.

--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.

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.
