Options

--description (string)

Information about the OpsItem.

--ops-item-type (string)

The type of OpsItem to create. Currently, the only valid values are /aws/changerequest and /aws/issue .

--operational-data (map)

Operational data is custom data that provides useful reference details about the OpsItem. For example, you can specify log files, error strings, license keys, troubleshooting tips, or other relevant data. You enter operational data as key-value pairs. The key has a maximum length of 128 characters. The value has a maximum size of 20 KB.

Warning

Operational data keys can't begin with the following: amazon , aws , amzn , ssm , /amazon , /aws , /amzn , /ssm .

You can choose to make the data searchable by other users in the account or you can restrict search access. Searchable data means that all users with access to the OpsItem Overview page (as provided by the DescribeOpsItems API operation) can view and search on the specified data. Operational data that isn't searchable is only viewable by users who have access to the OpsItem (as provided by the GetOpsItem API operation).

Use the /aws/resources key in OperationalData to specify a related resource in the request. Use the /aws/automations key in OperationalData to associate an Automation runbook with the OpsItem. To view Amazon Web Services CLI example commands that use these keys, see Creating OpsItems manually in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide .

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

An object that defines the value of the key and its type in the OperationalData map.

Value -> (string)

The value of the OperationalData key.

Type -> (string)

The type of key-value pair. Valid types include SearchableString and String .

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=Value=string,Type=string,KeyName2=Value=string,Type=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": {
      "Value": "string",
      "Type": "SearchableString"|"String"
    }
  ...}

--notifications (list)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an SNS topic where notifications are sent when this OpsItem is edited or changed.

(structure)

A notification about the OpsItem.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) topic where notifications are sent when this OpsItem is edited or changed.

Shorthand Syntax:

Arn=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Arn": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--priority (integer)

The importance of this OpsItem in relation to other OpsItems in the system.

--related-ops-items (list)

One or more OpsItems that share something in common with the current OpsItems. For example, related OpsItems can include OpsItems with similar error messages, impacted resources, or statuses for the impacted resource.

(structure)

An OpsItems that shares something in common with the current OpsItem. For example, related OpsItems can include OpsItems with similar error messages, impacted resources, or statuses for the impacted resource.

OpsItemId -> (string)

The ID of an OpsItem related to the current OpsItem.

Shorthand Syntax:

OpsItemId=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "OpsItemId": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--source (string)

The origin of the OpsItem, such as Amazon EC2 or Systems Manager.

Note

The source name can't contain the following strings: aws , amazon , and amzn .

--title (string)

A short heading that describes the nature of the OpsItem and the impacted resource.

--tags (list)

Optional metadata that you assign to a resource. You can restrict access to OpsItems by using an inline IAM policy that specifies tags. For more information, see Getting started with OpsCenter in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide .

Tags use a key-value pair. For example:

Key=Department,Value=Finance

Warning

To add tags to a new OpsItem, a user must have IAM permissions for both the ssm:CreateOpsItems operation and the ssm:AddTagsToResource operation. To add tags to an existing OpsItem, use the AddTagsToResource operation.

(structure)

Metadata that you assign to your Amazon Web Services resources. Tags enable you to categorize your resources in different ways, for example, by purpose, owner, or environment. In Amazon Web Services Systems Manager, you can apply tags to Systems Manager documents (SSM documents), managed nodes, maintenance windows, parameters, patch baselines, OpsItems, and OpsMetadata.

Key -> (string)

The name of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The value of the tag.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--category (string)

Specify a category to assign to an OpsItem.

--severity (string)

Specify a severity to assign to an OpsItem.

--actual-start-time (timestamp)

--actual-end-time (timestamp)

The time a runbook workflow ended. Currently reported only for the OpsItem type /aws/changerequest .

--planned-start-time (timestamp)

--planned-end-time (timestamp)

The time specified in a change request for a runbook workflow to end. Currently supported only for the OpsItem type /aws/changerequest .

--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.

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 an OpsItems

The following create-ops-item example uses the /aws/resources key in OperationalData to create an OpsItem with an Amazon DynamoDB related resource.

aws ssm create-ops-item \
    --title "EC2 instance disk full" \
    --description "Log clean up may have failed which caused the disk to be full" \
    --priority 2 \
    --source ec2 \
    --operational-data '{"/aws/resources":{"Value":"[{\"arn\": \"arn:aws:dynamodb:us-west-2:12345678:table/OpsItems\"}]","Type":"SearchableString"}}' \
    --notifications Arn="arn:aws:sns:us-west-2:12345678:TestUser"

Output:

{
    "OpsItemId": "oi-1a2b3c4d5e6f"
}

For more information, see Creating OpsItems in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.

Output

OpsItemId -> (string)

The ID of the OpsItem.
