Creates an empty dataset and adds it to the specified dataset group. Use CreateDatasetImportJob to import your training data to a dataset.

There are three types of datasets:

  • Interactions
  • Items
  • Users

Each dataset type has an associated schema with required field types. Only the Interactions dataset is required in order to train a model (also referred to as creating a solution).

A dataset can be in one of the following states:


To get the status of the dataset, call DescribeDataset .

--name (string)

The name for the dataset.

--schema-arn (string)

The ARN of the schema to associate with the dataset. The schema defines the dataset fields.

--dataset-group-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dataset group to add the dataset to.

--dataset-type (string)

The type of dataset.

One of the following (case insensitive) values:

  • Interactions
  • Items
  • Users

--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.


datasetArn -> (string)

The ARN of the dataset.
