[ aws . qldb-session ]

send-command

Description

Sends a command to an Amazon QLDB ledger.

Note

Instead of interacting directly with this API, we recommend that you use the Amazon QLDB Driver or the QLDB Shell to execute data transactions on a ledger.

  • If you are working with an AWS SDK, use the QLDB Driver. The driver provides a high-level abstraction layer above this qldbsession data plane and manages SendCommand API calls for you. For information and a list of supported programming languages, see Getting started with the driver in the Amazon QLDB Developer Guide .
  • If you are working with the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), use the QLDB Shell. The shell is a command line interface that uses the QLDB Driver to interact with a ledger. For information, see Accessing Amazon QLDB using the QLDB Shell .

Options

--session-token (string)

Specifies the session token for the current command. A session token is constant throughout the life of the session.

To obtain a session token, run the StartSession command. This SessionToken is required for every subsequent command that is issued during the current session.

--start-session (structure)

Command to start a new session. A session token is obtained as part of the response.

Shorthand Syntax:

LedgerName=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "LedgerName": "string"
}

--start-transaction (structure)

Command to start a new transaction.

JSON Syntax:

{

}

--end-session (structure)

Command to end the current session.

JSON Syntax:

{

}

--commit-transaction (structure)

Command to commit the specified transaction.

Shorthand Syntax:

TransactionId=string,CommitDigest=blob

JSON Syntax:

{
  "TransactionId": "string",
  "CommitDigest": blob
}

--abort-transaction (structure)

Command to abort the current transaction.

JSON Syntax:

{

}

--execute-statement (structure)

Command to execute a statement in the specified transaction.

Shorthand Syntax:

TransactionId=string,Statement=string,Parameters=[{IonBinary=blob,IonText=string},{IonBinary=blob,IonText=string}]

JSON Syntax:

{
  "TransactionId": "string",
  "Statement": "string",
  "Parameters": [
    {
      "IonBinary": blob,
      "IonText": "string"
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--fetch-page (structure)

Command to fetch a page.

Shorthand Syntax:

TransactionId=string,NextPageToken=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "TransactionId": "string",
  "NextPageToken": "string"
}

--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.
