create-job

Description

Creates a job to import or export data between Amazon S3 and your on-premises data center. Your AWS account must have the right trust policies and permissions in place to create a job for a Snow device. If you're creating a job for a node in a cluster, you only need to provide the clusterId value; the other job attributes are inherited from the cluster.

Note

Only the Snowball; Edge device type is supported when ordering clustered jobs.

The device capacity is optional.

Availability of device types differ by AWS Region. For more information about Region availability, see AWS Regional Services .
