--template-active-version-request (structure)

Specifies which version of a message template to use as the active version of the template.

Version -> (string)

The version of the message template to use as the active version of the template. Valid values are: latest, for the most recent version of the template; or, the unique identifier for any existing version of the template. If you specify an identifier, the value must match the identifier for an existing template version. To retrieve a list of versions and version identifiers for a template, use the Template Versionsresource.

JSON Syntax:

  "Version": "string"

--template-name (string)

The name of the message template. A template name must start with an alphanumeric character and can contain a maximum of 128 characters. The characters can be alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), or hyphens (-). Template names are case sensitive.

--template-type (string)

The type of channel that the message template is designed for. Valid values are: EMAIL, PUSH, SMS, and VOICE.

--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.
