--domain-name (string)

The name of the domain that you want to update to the latest service software.

--schedule-at (string)

When to start the service software update.

  • NOW - Immediately schedules the update to happen in the current hour if there's capacity available.
  • TIMESTAMP - Lets you specify a custom date and time to apply the update. If you specify this value, you must also provide a value for DesiredStartTime .
  • OFF_PEAK_WINDOW - Marks the update to be picked up during an upcoming off-peak window. There's no guarantee that the update will happen during the next immediate window. Depending on capacity, it might happen in subsequent days.

Default: NOW if you don't specify a value for DesiredStartTime , and TIMESTAMP if you do.

Possible values:

  • NOW

--desired-start-time (long)

The Epoch timestamp when you want the service software update to start. You only need to specify this parameter if you set ScheduleAt to TIMESTAMP .

--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.
