[ aws . ses ]



Creates a configuration set event destination.


When you create or update an event destination, you must provide one, and only one, destination. The destination can be CloudWatch, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, or Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS).

An event destination is the AWS service to which Amazon SES publishes the email sending events associated with a configuration set. For information about using configuration sets, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide .

You can execute this operation no more than once per second.

  "Name": "string",
  "Enabled": true|false,
  "MatchingEventTypes": ["send"|"reject"|"bounce"|"complaint"|"delivery"|"open"|"click"|"renderingFailure", ...],
  "KinesisFirehoseDestination": {
    "IAMRoleARN": "string",
    "DeliveryStreamARN": "string"
  "CloudWatchDestination": {

--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.
