Options

--name (string)

The name you give to the Qualification type. The type name is used to represent the Qualification to Workers, and to find the type using a Qualification type search. It must be unique across all of your Qualification types.

--keywords (string)

One or more words or phrases that describe the Qualification type, separated by commas. The keywords of a type make the type easier to find during a search.

--description (string)

A long description for the Qualification type. On the Amazon Mechanical Turk website, the long description is displayed when a Worker examines a Qualification type.

--qualification-type-status (string)

The initial status of the Qualification type.

Constraints: Valid values are: Active | Inactive

Possible values:

  • Active
  • Inactive

--retry-delay-in-seconds (long)

The number of seconds that a Worker must wait after requesting a Qualification of the Qualification type before the worker can retry the Qualification request.

Constraints: None. If not specified, retries are disabled and Workers can request a Qualification of this type only once, even if the Worker has not been granted the Qualification. It is not possible to disable retries for a Qualification type after it has been created with retries enabled. If you want to disable retries, you must delete existing retry-enabled Qualification type and then create a new Qualification type with retries disabled.

--test (string)

The questions for the Qualification test a Worker must answer correctly to obtain a Qualification of this type. If this parameter is specified, TestDurationInSeconds must also be specified.

Constraints: Must not be longer than 65535 bytes. Must be a QuestionForm data structure. This parameter cannot be specified if AutoGranted is true.

Constraints: None. If not specified, the Worker may request the Qualification without answering any questions.

--answer-key (string)

The answers to the Qualification test specified in the Test parameter, in the form of an AnswerKey data structure.

Constraints: Must not be longer than 65535 bytes.

Constraints: None. If not specified, you must process Qualification requests manually.

--test-duration-in-seconds (long)

The number of seconds the Worker has to complete the Qualification test, starting from the time the Worker requests the Qualification.

--auto-granted | --no-auto-granted (boolean)

Specifies whether requests for the Qualification type are granted immediately, without prompting the Worker with a Qualification test.

Constraints: If the Test parameter is specified, this parameter cannot be true.

--auto-granted-value (integer)

The Qualification value to use for automatically granted Qualifications. This parameter is used only if the AutoGranted parameter is true.

--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.

Output

QualificationType -> (structure)

The created Qualification type, returned as a QualificationType data structure.

QualificationTypeId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the Qualification type. A Qualification type is given a Qualification type ID when you call the CreateQualificationType operation.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time the Qualification type was created.

Name -> (string)

The name of the Qualification type. The type name is used to identify the type, and to find the type using a Qualification type search.

Description -> (string)

A long description for the Qualification type.

Keywords -> (string)

One or more words or phrases that describe theQualification type, separated by commas. The Keywords make the type easier to find using a search.

QualificationTypeStatus -> (string)

The status of the Qualification type. A Qualification type's status determines if users can apply to receive a Qualification of this type, and if HITs can be created with requirements based on this type. Valid values are Active | Inactive.

Test -> (string)

The questions for a Qualification test associated with this Qualification type that a user can take to obtain a Qualification of this type. This parameter must be specified if AnswerKey is present. A Qualification type cannot have both a specified Test parameter and an AutoGranted value of true.

TestDurationInSeconds -> (long)

The amount of time, in seconds, given to a Worker to complete the Qualification test, beginning from the time the Worker requests the Qualification.

AnswerKey -> (string)

The answers to the Qualification test specified in the Test parameter.

RetryDelayInSeconds -> (long)

The amount of time, in seconds, Workers must wait after taking the Qualification test before they can take it again. Workers can take a Qualification test multiple times if they were not granted the Qualification from a previous attempt, or if the test offers a gradient score and they want a better score. If not specified, retries are disabled and Workers can request a Qualification only once.

IsRequestable -> (boolean)

Specifies whether the Qualification type is one that a user can request through the Amazon Mechanical Turk web site, such as by taking a Qualification test. This value is False for Qualifications assigned automatically by the system. Valid values are True | False.

AutoGranted -> (boolean)

Specifies that requests for the Qualification type are granted immediately, without prompting the Worker with a Qualification test. Valid values are True | False.

AutoGrantedValue -> (integer)

The Qualification integer value to use for automatically granted Qualifications, if AutoGranted is true. This is 1 by default.
