--client-request-token (string)

A unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the operation. An idempotent operation completes no more than one time. This identifier is required only if you make a service request directly using an HTTP client. It is generated automatically if you use an AWS SDK or the AWS CLI.

--name (string)

The name of the network.

--description (string)

An optional description for the network.

--framework (string)

The blockchain framework that the network uses.

Possible values:


--framework-version (string)

The version of the blockchain framework that the network uses.

--framework-configuration (structure)

Configuration properties of the blockchain framework relevant to the network configuration.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Fabric": {
    "Edition": "STARTER"|"STANDARD"

--voting-policy (structure)

The voting rules used by the network to determine if a proposal is approved.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "ApprovalThresholdPolicy": {
    "ThresholdPercentage": integer,
    "ProposalDurationInHours": integer,
    "ThresholdComparator": "GREATER_THAN"|"GREATER_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO"

--member-configuration (structure)

Configuration properties for the first member within the network.

JSON Syntax:

  "Name": "string",
  "Description": "string",
  "FrameworkConfiguration": {
    "Fabric": {
      "AdminUsername": "string",
      "AdminPassword": "string"
  "LogPublishingConfiguration": {
    "Fabric": {
      "CaLogs": {
        "Cloudwatch": {
          "Enabled": true|false

--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.


NetworkId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the network.

MemberId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the first member within the network.
