--app-monitor-name (string)

The name of the CloudWatch RUM app monitor that will send the metrics.

--destination (string)

Defines the destination to send the metrics to. Valid values are CloudWatch and Evidently . If you specify Evidently , you must also specify the ARN of the CloudWatchEvidently experiment that is to be the destination and an IAM role that has permission to write to the experiment.

Possible values:

  • CloudWatch
  • Evidently

--destination-arn (string)

Use this parameter only if Destination is Evidently . This parameter specifies the ARN of the Evidently experiment that will receive the extended metrics.

--iam-role-arn (string)

This parameter is required if Destination is Evidently . If Destination is CloudWatch , don't use this parameter.

This parameter specifies the ARN of an IAM role that RUM will assume to write to the Evidently experiment that you are sending metrics to. This role must have permission to write to that experiment.

If you specify this parameter, you must be signed on to a role that has PassRole permissions attached to it, to allow the role to be passed. The CloudWatchAmazonCloudWatchRUMFullAccess policy doesn't include PassRole permissions.

--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.
