--name (string)

The name that you want to assign to this namespace. When you create a namespace, Amazon Route 53 automatically creates a 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 create-private-dns-namespace requests to be retried without the risk of executing the operation twice. CreatorRequestId can be any unique string, for example, a date/time stamp.

--description (string)

A description for the namespace.

--vpc (string)

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

--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.

--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.


OperationId -> (string)

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