User Guide

First time using the AWS CLI? See the User Guide for help getting started.

Note: You are viewing the documentation for an older major version of the AWS CLI (version 1).

AWS CLI version 2, the latest major version of AWS CLI, is now stable and recommended for general use. To view this page for the AWS CLI version 2, click here. For more information see the AWS CLI version 2 installation instructions and migration guide.

[ aws . rekognition ]



Adds or updates one or more entries (images) in a dataset. An entry is a JSON Line which contains the information for a single image, including the image location, assigned labels, and object location bounding boxes. For more information, see Image-Level labels in manifest files and Object localization in manifest files in the Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels Developer Guide .

If the source-ref field in the JSON line references an existing image, the existing image in the dataset is updated. If source-ref field doesn't reference an existing image, the image is added as a new image to the dataset.

You specify the changes that you want to make in the Changes input parameter. There isn't a limit to the number JSON Lines that you can change, but the size of Changes must be less than 5MB.

UpdateDatasetEntries returns immediatly, but the dataset update might take a while to complete. Use DescribeDataset to check the current status. The dataset updated successfully if the value of Status is UPDATE_COMPLETE .

To check if any non-terminal errors occured, call ListDatasetEntries and check for the presence of errors lists in the JSON Lines.

Dataset update fails if a terminal error occurs (Status = UPDATE_FAILED ). Currently, you can't access the terminal error information from the Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels SDK.

This operation requires permissions to perform the rekognition:UpdateDatasetEntries action.

--dataset-arn <value>
--changes <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--dataset-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the dataset that you want to update.

--changes (structure)

The changes that you want to make to the dataset.

GroundTruth -> (blob)

A Base64-encoded binary data object containing one or JSON lines that either update the dataset or are additions to the dataset. You change a dataset by calling UpdateDatasetEntries . If you are using an AWS SDK to call UpdateDatasetEntries , you don't need to encode Changes as the SDK encodes the data for you.

For example JSON lines, see Image-Level labels in manifest files and and Object localization in manifest files in the Amazon Rekognition Custom Labels Developer Guide .

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "GroundTruth": blob

--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.
