--credentials (structure)

The credentials QuickSight that uses to connect to your underlying source. Currently, only credentials based on user name and password are supported.

Shorthand Syntax:

CredentialPair={Username=string,Password=string}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "CredentialPair": {
    "Username": "string",
    "Password": "string"
  }
}

--permissions (list)

A list of resource permissions on the data source.

Shorthand Syntax:

Principal=string,Actions=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Principal": "string",
    "Actions": ["string", ...]
  }
  ...
]

--vpc-connection-properties (structure)

Use this parameter only when you want QuickSight to use a VPC connection when connecting to your underlying source.

Shorthand Syntax:

VpcConnectionArn=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "VpcConnectionArn": "string"
}

--ssl-properties (structure)

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) properties that apply when QuickSight connects to your underlying source.

Shorthand Syntax:

DisableSsl=boolean

--tags (list)

Contains a map of the key-value pairs for the resource tag or tags assigned to the data source.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "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.
