Description

Creates an empty cluster. Each cluster supports five nodes. You use the CreateJob action separately to create the jobs for each of these nodes. The cluster does not ship until these five node jobs have been created.

Options

--job-type (string)

The type of job for this cluster. Currently, the only job type supported for clusters is LOCAL_USE .

Possible values:

  • IMPORT
  • EXPORT
  • LOCAL_USE

--resources (structure)

The resources associated with the cluster job. These resources include Amazon S3 buckets and optional AWS Lambda functions written in the Python language.

S3Resources -> (list)

An array of S3Resource objects.

(structure)

Each S3Resource object represents an Amazon S3 bucket that your transferred data will be exported from or imported into. For export jobs, this object can have an optional KeyRange value. The length of the range is defined at job creation, and has either an inclusive BeginMarker , an inclusive EndMarker , or both. Ranges are UTF-8 binary sorted.

BucketArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon S3 bucket.

KeyRange -> (structure)

For export jobs, you can provide an optional KeyRange within a specific Amazon S3 bucket. The length of the range is defined at job creation, and has either an inclusive BeginMarker , an inclusive EndMarker , or both. Ranges are UTF-8 binary sorted.

BeginMarker -> (string)

The key that starts an optional key range for an export job. Ranges are inclusive and UTF-8 binary sorted.

EndMarker -> (string)

The key that ends an optional key range for an export job. Ranges are inclusive and UTF-8 binary sorted.

LambdaResources -> (list)

The Python-language Lambda functions for this job.

(structure)

Identifies

LambdaArn -> (string)

An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that represents an AWS Lambda function to be triggered by PUT object actions on the associated local Amazon S3 resource.

EventTriggers -> (list)

The array of ARNs for S3Resource objects to trigger the LambdaResource objects associated with this job.

(structure)

The container for the EventTriggerDefinition$EventResourceARN .

EventResourceARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for any local Amazon S3 resource that is an AWS Lambda function's event trigger associated with this job.

Ec2AmiResources -> (list)

The Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) associated with this job.

(structure)

A JSON-formatted object that contains the IDs for an Amazon Machine Image (AMI), including the Amazon EC2 AMI ID and the Snowball Edge AMI ID. Each AMI has these two IDs to simplify identifying the AMI in both the AWS Cloud and on the device.

AmiId -> (string)

The ID of the AMI in Amazon EC2.

SnowballAmiId -> (string)

The ID of the AMI on the Snowball Edge device.

JSON Syntax:

{
  "S3Resources": [
    {
      "BucketArn": "string",
      "KeyRange": {
        "BeginMarker": "string",
        "EndMarker": "string"
      }
    }
    ...
  ],
  "LambdaResources": [
    {
      "LambdaArn": "string",
      "EventTriggers": [
        {
          "EventResourceARN": "string"

  "Ec2AmiResources": [
    {
      "AmiId": "string",
      "SnowballAmiId": "string"
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--description (string)

An optional description of this specific cluster, for example Environmental Data Cluster-01 .

--address-id (string)

The ID for the address that you want the cluster shipped to.

--kms-key-arn (string)

The KmsKeyARN value that you want to associate with this cluster. KmsKeyARN values are created by using the CreateKey API action in AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS).

--role-arn (string)

The RoleARN that you want to associate with this cluster. RoleArn values are created by using the CreateRole API action in AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).

--snowball-type (string)

The type of AWS Snowball device to use for this cluster.

Note

For cluster jobs, AWS Snowball currently supports only the EDGE device type.

Possible values:

  • STANDARD
  • EDGE
  • EDGE_C
  • EDGE_CG
  • EDGE_S
  • SNC1_HDD

--shipping-option (string)

The shipping speed for each node in this cluster. This speed doesn't dictate how soon you'll get each Snowball Edge device, rather it represents how quickly each device moves to its destination while in transit. Regional shipping speeds are as follows:

  • In Australia, you have access to express shipping. Typically, Snowballs shipped express are delivered in about a day.
  • In the European Union (EU), you have access to express shipping. Typically, Snowballs shipped express are delivered in about a day. In addition, most countries in the EU have access to standard shipping, which typically takes less than a week, one way.
  • In India, Snowballs are delivered in one to seven days.
  • In the United States of America (US), you have access to one-day shipping and two-day shipping.
  • In Australia, you have access to express shipping. Typically, devices shipped express are delivered in about a day.
  • In the European Union (EU), you have access to express shipping. Typically, Snowball Edges shipped express are delivered in about a day. In addition, most countries in the EU have access to standard shipping, which typically takes less than a week, one way.
  • In India, Snowball Edges are delivered in one to seven days.
  • In the US, you have access to one-day shipping and two-day shipping.

Possible values:

  • SECOND_DAY
  • NEXT_DAY
  • EXPRESS
  • STANDARD

--notification (structure)

SnsTopicARN -> (string)

The new SNS TopicArn that you want to associate with this job. You can create Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) for topics by using the CreateTopic Amazon SNS API action.

You can subscribe email addresses to an Amazon SNS topic through the AWS Management Console, or by using the Subscribe AWS Simple Notification Service (SNS) API action.

JobStatesToNotify -> (list)

The list of job states that will trigger a notification for this job.

(string)

NotifyAll -> (boolean)

Any change in job state will trigger a notification for this job.

Shorthand Syntax:

SnsTopicARN=string,JobStatesToNotify=string,string,NotifyAll=boolean

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SnsTopicARN": "string",
  "JobStatesToNotify": ["New"|"PreparingAppliance"|"PreparingShipment"|"InTransitToCustomer"|"WithCustomer"|"InTransitToAWS"|"WithAWSSortingFacility"|"WithAWS"|"InProgress"|"Complete"|"Cancelled"|"Listing"|"Pending", ...],
  "NotifyAll": true|false

--forwarding-address-id (string)

The forwarding address ID for a cluster. This field is not supported in most regions.

--tax-documents (structure)

The tax documents required in your AWS Region.

IND -> (structure)

The tax documents required in AWS Regions in India.

GSTIN -> (string)

IND={GSTIN=string}

JSON Syntax:

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

ClusterId -> (string)

The automatically generated ID for a cluster.
