create-group

Description

Creates a resource group with the specified name and description. You can optionally include a resource query, or a service configuration. For more information about constructing a resource query, see Create a tag-based group in Resource Groups . For more information about service configurations, see Service configurations for resource groups .

Minimum permissions

To run this command, you must have the following permissions:

  • resource-groups:CreateGroup

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-group
--name <value>
[--description <value>]
[--resource-query <value>]
[--tags <value>]
[--configuration <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--name (string)

The name of the group, which is the identifier of the group in other operations. You can't change the name of a resource group after you create it. A resource group name can consist of letters, numbers, hyphens, periods, and underscores. The name cannot start with AWS or aws ; these are reserved. A resource group name must be unique within each AWS Region in your AWS account.

--description (string)

The description of the resource group. Descriptions can consist of letters, numbers, hyphens, underscores, periods, and spaces.

--resource-query (structure)

The resource query that determines which AWS resources are members of this group. For more information about resource queries, see Create a tag-based group in Resource Groups .

Note

A resource group can contain either a ResourceQuery or a Configuration , but not both.

Type -> (string)

The type of the query. You can use the following values:

  • *CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: * Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.
  • ``TAG_FILTERS_1_0:`` * Specifies that the ``Query`` parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the `` `GetResources <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html>`__ `` operation, but uses only the `` `ResourceTypeFilters <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html#resourcegrouptagging-GetResources-request-ResourceTypeFilters>`__ `` and `` `TagFilters <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html#resourcegrouptagging-GetResources-request-TagFiltersTagFilters>`__ `` fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches *any of the specified values. For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version , with two values each: [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}] The results of this query could include the following.
    • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"} , and {"Version":"2"}
    • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"} , and {"Version":"1"}

The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

  • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"} . The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.
  • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"} The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.

Query -> (string)

The query that defines a group or a search.

Shorthand Syntax:

Type=string,Query=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Type": "TAG_FILTERS_1_0"|"CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0",
  "Query": "string"
}

--tags (map)

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"
  ...}

--configuration (list)

A configuration associates the resource group with an AWS service and specifies how the service can interact with the resources in the group. A configuration is an array of GroupConfigurationItem elements. For details about the syntax of service configurations, see Service configurations for resource groups .

Note

A resource group can contain either a Configuration or a ResourceQuery , but not both.

(structure)

An item in a group configuration. A group service configuration can have one or more items. For details about group service configuration syntax, see Service configurations for resource groups .

Type -> (string)

Specifies the type of group configuration item. Each item must have a unique value for type . For the list of types that you can specify for a configuration item, see Supported resource types and parameters .

Parameters -> (list)

A collection of parameters for this group configuration item. For the list of parameters that you can use with each configuration item type, see Supported resource types and parameters .

(structure)

A parameter for a group configuration item. For details about group service configuration syntax, see Service configurations for resource groups .

Name -> (string)

The name of the group configuration parameter. For the list of parameters that you can use with each configuration item type, see Supported resource types and parameters .

Values -> (list)

The value or values to be used for the specified parameter. For the list of values you can use with each parameter, see Supported resource types and parameters .

(string)

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Type": "string",
    "Parameters": [
      {
        "Name": "string",
        "Values": ["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.

Examples

Example 1: To create a tag-based resource group

The following create-group example creates a tag-based resource group of Amazon EC2 instances in the current region. It's based on a query for resources that are tagged with the key Name, and the value WebServers. The group name is tbq-WebServer. The query is in a separate JSON file that is passed to the command.

aws resource-groups create-group \
    --name tbq-WebServer \
    --resource-query file://query.json

Contents of query.json:

{
    "Type": "TAG_FILTERS_1_0",
    "Query": "{\"ResourceTypeFilters\":[\"AWS::EC2::Instance\"],\"TagFilters\":[{\"Key\":\"Name\", \"Values\":[\"WebServers\"]}]}"
}

Output:

{
    "Group": {
        "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/tbq-WebServer",
        "Name": "tbq-WebServer"
    },
    "ResourceQuery": {
        "Type": "TAG_FILTERS_1_0",
        "Query": "{\"ResourceTypeFilters\":[\"AWS::EC2::Instance\"],\"TagFilters\":[{\"Key\":\"Name\", \"Values\":[\"WebServers\"]}]}"
    }
}

Example 2: To create a CloudFormation stack-based resource group

The following create-group example creates an AWS CloudFormation stack-based resource group named sampleCFNstackgroup. The query includes all resources in the specified CloudFormation stack that are supported by AWS Resource Groups.

aws resource-groups create-group \
    --name cbq-CFNstackgroup \
    --resource-query file://query.json

Contents of query.json:

{
    "Type": "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0",
    "Query": "{\"ResourceTypeFilters\":[\"AWS::AllSupported\"],\"StackIdentifier\":\"arn:aws:cloudformation:us-west-2:123456789012:stack/MyCFNStack/1415z9z0-z39z-11z8-97z5-500z212zz6fz\"}"
}

Output:

{
    "Group": {
        "GroupArn": "arn:aws:resource-groups:us-west-2:123456789012:group/cbq-CFNstackgroup",
        "Name": "cbq-CFNstackgroup"
    },
    "ResourceQuery": {
        "Type": "CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0",
        "Query": "{\"ResourceTypeFilters\":[\"AWS::AllSupported\"],\"StackIdentifier\":\"arn:aws:cloudformation:us-east-2:123456789012:stack/MyCFNStack/1415z9z0-z39z-11z8-97z5-500z212zz6fz\"}"}'
    }
}

The description of the resource group.

ResourceQuery -> (structure)

The resource query associated with the group. For more information about resource queries, see Create a tag-based group in Resource Groups .

Type -> (string)

The type of the query. You can use the following values:

  • *CLOUDFORMATION_STACK_1_0: * Specifies that the Query contains an ARN for a CloudFormation stack.
  • ``TAG_FILTERS_1_0:`` * Specifies that the ``Query`` parameter contains a JSON string that represents a collection of simple tag filters for resource types and tags. The JSON string uses a syntax similar to the `` `GetResources <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html>`__ `` operation, but uses only the `` `ResourceTypeFilters <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html#resourcegrouptagging-GetResources-request-ResourceTypeFilters>`__ `` and `` `TagFilters <https://docs.aws.amazon.com/resourcegroupstagging/latest/APIReference/API_GetResources.html#resourcegrouptagging-GetResources-request-TagFiltersTagFilters>`__ `` fields. If you specify more than one tag key, only resources that match all tag keys, and at least one value of each specified tag key, are returned in your query. If you specify more than one value for a tag key, a resource matches the filter if it has a tag key value that matches *any of the specified values. For example, consider the following sample query for resources that have two tags, Stage and Version , with two values each: [{"Stage":["Test","Deploy"]},{"Version":["1","2"]}] The results of this query could include the following.
    • An EC2 instance that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Deploy"} , and {"Version":"2"}
    • An S3 bucket that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Test"} , and {"Version":"1"}

The query would not include the following items in the results, however.

  • An EC2 instance that has only the following tag: {"Stage":"Deploy"} . The instance does not have all of the tag keys specified in the filter, so it is excluded from the results.
  • An RDS database that has the following two tags: {"Stage":"Archived"} and {"Version":"4"} The database has all of the tag keys, but none of those keys has an associated value that matches at least one of the specified values in the filter.
