[ aws . mgh ]



Provides identifying details of the resource being migrated so that it can be associated in the Application Discovery Service (ADS)'s repository. This association occurs asynchronously after put-resource-attributes returns.



Because this is an asynchronous call, it will always return 200, whether an association occurs or not. To confirm if an association was found based on the provided details, call list-discovered-resources .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--progress-update-stream <value>
--migration-task-name <value>
--resource-attribute-list <value>
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--progress-update-stream (string)

The name of the ProgressUpdateStream.

--migration-task-name (string)

Unique identifier that references the migration task.

--resource-attribute-list (list)

Information about the resource that is being migrated. This data will be used to map the task to a resource in the Application Discovery Service (ADS)'s repository.


Takes the object array of ResourceAttribute where the Type field is reserved for the following values: IPV4_ADDRESS | IPV6_ADDRESS | MAC_ADDRESS | FQDN | VM_MANAGER_ID | VM_MANAGED_OBJECT_REFERENCE | VM_NAME | VM_PATH | BIOS_ID | MOTHERBOARD_SERIAL_NUMBER where the identifying value can be a string up to 256 characters.


  • If any "VM" related value is set for a ResourceAttribute object, it is required that VM_MANAGER_ID , as a minimum, is always set. If VM_MANAGER_ID is not set, then all "VM" fields will be discarded and "VM" fields will not be used for matching the migration task to a server in Application Discovery Service (ADS)'s repository. See the Example section below for a use case of specifying "VM" related values.
  • If a server you are trying to match has multiple IP or MAC addresses, you should provide as many as you know in separate type/value pairs passed to the resource-attribute-list parameter to maximize the chances of matching.

Shorthand Syntax:

Type=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Value": "string"

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Optional boolean flag to indicate whether any effect should take place. Used to test if the caller has permission to make the call.

--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.

--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.
