[ aws . redshift ]



Creates a new Amazon Redshift subnet group. You must provide a list of one or more subnets in your existing Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) when creating Amazon Redshift subnet group.

For information about subnet groups, go to Amazon Redshift Cluster Subnet Groups in the Amazon Redshift Cluster Management Guide .

--cluster-subnet-group-name (string)

The name for the subnet group. Amazon Redshift stores the value as a lowercase string.


  • Must contain no more than 255 alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
  • Must not be "Default".
  • Must be unique for all subnet groups that are created by your Amazon Web Services account.

Example: examplesubnetgroup

--description (string)

A description for the subnet group.

--subnet-ids (list)

An array of VPC subnet IDs. A maximum of 20 subnets can be modified in a single request.



"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

A list of tag instances.


A tag consisting of a name/value pair for a resource.

Key -> (string)

The key, or name, for the resource tag.

Value -> (string)

The value for the resource tag.

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.
