--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.

--network-id (string)

The unique identifier of the network for which the proposal is made.

--member-id (string)

The unique identifier of the member that is creating the proposal. This identifier is especially useful for identifying the member making the proposal when multiple members exist in a single AWS account.

--actions (structure)

The type of actions proposed, such as inviting a member or removing a member. The types of Actions in a proposal are mutually exclusive. For example, a proposal with Invitations actions cannot also contain Removals actions.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Invitations": [
      "Principal": "string"
  "Removals": [
      "MemberId": "string"

--description (string)

A description for the proposal that is visible to voting members, for example, "Proposal to add Example Corp. as member."

--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.


ProposalId -> (string)

The unique identifier of the proposal.
