--shortname (string)

For custom layers only, use this parameter to specify the layer's short name, which is used internally by AWS OpsWorks Stacks and by Chef. The short name is also used as the name for the directory where your app files are installed. It can have a maximum of 200 characters and must be in the following format: /A[a-z0-9-_.]+Z/.

The built-in layers' short names are defined by AWS OpsWorks Stacks. For more information, see the Layer Reference

--install-updates-on-boot | --no-install-updates-on-boot (boolean)

Whether to install operating system and package updates when the instance boots. The default value is true . To control when updates are installed, set this value to false . You must then update your instances manually by using create-deployment to run the update_dependencies stack command or manually running yum (Amazon Linux) or apt-get (Ubuntu) on the instances.

Note

We strongly recommend using the default value of true , to ensure that your instances have the latest security updates.

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
