--accept-language (string)

The language code.

  • jp - Japanese
  • zh - Chinese

--id (string)

The identifier of the constraint.

--description (string)

The updated description of the constraint.

--parameters (string)

The constraint parameters, in JSON format. The syntax depends on the constraint type as follows:


You are required to specify either the RoleArn or the LocalRoleName but can't use both.

Specify the RoleArn property as follows:

{"RoleArn" : "arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/LaunchRole"}

Specify the LocalRoleName property as follows:

{"LocalRoleName": "SCBasicLaunchRole"}

If you specify the LocalRoleName property, when an account uses the launch constraint, the IAM role with that name in the account will be used. This allows launch-role constraints to be account-agnostic so the administrator can create fewer resources per shared account.


The given role name must exist in the account used to create the launch constraint and the account of the user who launches a product with this launch constraint.

You cannot have both a LAUNCH and a STACKSET constraint.

You also cannot have more than one LAUNCH constraint on a product and portfolio.


Specify the NotificationArns property as follows:

{"NotificationArns" : ["arn:aws:sns:us-east-1:123456789012:Topic"]}


Specify the TagUpdatesOnProvisionedProduct property as follows:


The TagUpdatesOnProvisionedProduct property accepts a string value of ALLOWED or NOT_ALLOWED .


Specify the Parameters property as follows:

{"Version": "String", "Properties": {"AccountList": [ "String" ], "RegionList": [ "String" ], "AdminRole": "String", "ExecutionRole": "String"}}

You cannot have both a LAUNCH and a STACKSET constraint.

You also cannot have more than one STACKSET constraint on a product and portfolio.

Products with a STACKSET constraint will launch an CloudFormation stack set.


Specify the Rules property. For more information, see Template Constraint Rules .

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)
