create-private-dns-namespace

Description

Creates a private namespace based on DNS, which is visible only inside a specified Amazon VPC. The namespace defines your service naming scheme. For example, if you name your namespace example.com and name your service backend , the resulting DNS name for the service is backend.example.com . Service instances that are registered using a private DNS namespace can be discovered using either a DiscoverInstances request or using DNS. For the current quota on the number of namespaces that you can create using the same account, see Cloud Map quotas in the Cloud Map Developer Guide .

Options

--name (string)

The name that you want to assign to this namespace. When you create a private DNS namespace, Cloud Map automatically creates an Amazon Route 53 private hosted zone that has the same name as the namespace.

--creator-request-id (string)

A unique string that identifies the request and that allows failed CreatePrivateDnsNamespace requests to be retried without the risk of running the operation twice. CreatorRequestId can be any unique string (for example, a date/timestamp).

--description (string)

A description for the namespace.

--vpc (string)

The ID of the Amazon VPC that you want to associate the namespace with.

--tags (list)

The tags to add to the namespace. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value that you define. Tags keys can be up to 128 characters in length, and tag values can be up to 256 characters in length.

(structure)

A custom key-value pair that's associated with a resource.

Key -> (string)

The key identifier, or name, of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The string value that's associated with the key of the tag. You can set the value of a tag to an empty string, but you can't set the value of a tag to null.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--properties (structure)

Properties for the private DNS namespace.

DnsProperties -> (structure)

DNS properties for the private DNS namespace.

SOA -> (structure)

Fields for the Start of Authority (SOA) record for the hosted zone for the private DNS namespace.

TTL -> (long)

The time to live (TTL) for purposes of negative caching.

Shorthand Syntax:

DnsProperties={SOA={TTL=long}}

JSON Syntax:

{
  "DnsProperties": {
    "SOA": {
      "TTL": long
    }
  }
}

--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)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create a private DNS namespace

The following create-private-dns-namespace example creates a private DNS namespace.

aws servicediscovery create-private-dns-namespace \
    --name example.com \
    --vpc vpc-1c56417b

Output:

{
    "OperationId": "gv4g5meo7ndmeh4fqskygvk23d2fijwa-k9302yzd"
}

To confirm that the operation succeeded, you can run get-operation. For more information, see get-operation .

For more information, see Creating namespaces in the AWS Cloud Map Developer Guide.

Output

OperationId -> (string)

A value that you can use to determine whether the request completed successfully. To get the status of the operation, see GetOperation .
