--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.

Examples

To create an Amazon RDS DB security group

The following create-db-security-group command creates a new Amazon RDS DB security group:

aws rds create-db-security-group --db-security-group-name mysecgroup --db-security-group-description "My Test Security Group"

In the example, the new DB security group is named mysecgroup and has a description.

Output:

    "DBSecurityGroup": {
        "OwnerId": "123456789012",
        "DBSecurityGroupName": "mysecgroup",
        "DBSecurityGroupDescription": "My Test Security Group",
        "VpcId": "vpc-a1b2c3d4",
        "EC2SecurityGroups": [],
        "IPRanges": [],
        "DBSecurityGroupArn": "arn:aws:rds:us-west-2:123456789012:secgrp:mysecgroup"
