Description

Registers a target with a maintenance window.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  register-target-with-maintenance-window
--window-id <value>
--resource-type <value>
--targets <value>
[--owner-information <value>]
[--name <value>]
[--description <value>]
[--client-token <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--window-id (string)

The ID of the maintenance window the target should be registered with.

--resource-type (string)

The type of target being registered with the maintenance window.

Possible values:

  • INSTANCE
  • RESOURCE_GROUP

--targets (list)

The targets to register with the maintenance window. In other words, the instances to run commands on when the maintenance window runs.

You can specify targets using instance IDs, resource group names, or tags that have been applied to instances.

Example 1 : Specify instance IDs

``Key=InstanceIds,Values=*instance-id-1* ,*instance-id-2* ,*instance-id-3* ``

Example 2 : Use tag key-pairs applied to instances

``Key=tag:my-tag-key ,Values=*my-tag-value-1* ,*my-tag-value-2* ``

Example 3 : Use tag-keys applied to instances

``Key=tag-key,Values=*my-tag-key-1* ,*my-tag-key-2* ``

Example 4 : Use resource group names

``Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=*resource-group-name* ``

Example 5 : Use filters for resource group types

``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*resource-type-1* ,*resource-type-2* ``

Note

For Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters , specify resource types in the following format

``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*AWS::EC2::INSTANCE* ,*AWS::EC2::VPC* ``

For more information about these examples formats, including the best use case for each one, see Examples: Register targets with a maintenance window in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide .

(structure)

An array of search criteria that targets instances using a Key,Value combination that you specify.

Supported formats include the following.

  • ``Key=InstanceIds,Values=*instance-id-1* ,*instance-id-2* ,*instance-id-3* ``
  • ``Key=tag:my-tag-key ,Values=*my-tag-value-1* ,*my-tag-value-2* ``
  • ``Key=tag-key,Values=*my-tag-key-1* ,*my-tag-key-2* ``
  • Run Command and Maintenance window targets only : ``Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=*resource-group-name* ``
  • Maintenance window targets only : ``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*resource-type-1* ,*resource-type-2* ``
  • Automation targets only : ``Key=ResourceGroup;Values=*resource-group-name* ``

For example:

  • Key=InstanceIds,Values=i-02573cafcfEXAMPLE,i-0471e04240EXAMPLE,i-07782c72faEXAMPLE
  • Key=tag:CostCenter,Values=CostCenter1,CostCenter2,CostCenter3
  • Key=tag-key,Values=Name,Instance-Type,CostCenter
  • Run Command and Maintenance window targets only : Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=ProductionResourceGroup This example demonstrates how to target all resources in the resource group ProductionResourceGroup in your maintenance window.
  • Maintenance window targets only : ``Key=resource-groups:ResourceTypeFilters,Values=*AWS::EC2::INSTANCE* ,*AWS::EC2::VPC* `` This example demonstrates how to target only EC2 instances and VPCs in your maintenance window.
  • Automation targets only : Key=ResourceGroup,Values=MyResourceGroup
  • State Manager association targets only : Key=InstanceIds,Values=* This example demonstrates how to target all managed instances in the AWS Region where the association was created.

For more information about how to send commands that target instances using Key,Value parameters, see Targeting multiple instances in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide .

Key -> (string)

User-defined criteria for sending commands that target instances that meet the criteria.

Values -> (list)

User-defined criteria that maps to Key . For example, if you specified tag:ServerRole , you could specify value:WebServer to run a command on instances that include EC2 tags of ServerRole,WebServer .

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Values=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--owner-information (string)

User-provided value that will be included in any CloudWatch events raised while running tasks for these targets in this maintenance window.

--name (string)

An optional name for the target.

--description (string)

An optional description for the target.

--client-token (string)

User-provided idempotency token.

--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

Example 1: To register a single target with a maintenance window

The following register-target-with-maintenance-window example registers an instance with a maintenance window.

aws ssm register-target-with-maintenance-window \
    --window-id "mw-ab12cd34ef56gh78" \
    --target "Key=InstanceIds,Values=i-0000293ffd8c57862" \
    --owner-information "Single instance" \
    --resource-type "INSTANCE"

Output:

{
    "WindowTargetId":"1a2b3c4d-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b3c4d-1a2"
}

Example 2: To register multiple targets with a maintenance window using instance IDs

The following register-target-with-maintenance-window example registers two instances with a maintenance window by specifying their instance IDs.

aws ssm register-target-with-maintenance-window \
    --window-id "mw-ab12cd34ef56gh78" \
    --target "Key=InstanceIds,Values=i-0000293ffd8c57862,i-0cb2b964d3e14fd9f" \
    --owner-information "Two instances in a list" \
    --resource-type "INSTANCE"

Output:

{
    "WindowTargetId":"1a2b3c4d-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b3c4d-1a2"
}

Example 3: To register targets with a maintenance window using resource tags

The following register-target-with-maintenance-window example registers instances with a maintenance window by specifying resource tags that have been applied to the instances.

aws ssm register-target-with-maintenance-window \
    --window-id "mw-06cf17cbefcb4bf4f" \
    --targets "Key=tag:Environment,Values=Prod" "Key=Role,Values=Web" \
    --owner-information "Production Web Servers" \
    --resource-type "INSTANCE"

Output:

{
    "WindowTargetId":"1a2b3c4d-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b3c4d-1a2"
}

Example 4: To register targets using a group of tag keys

The following register-target-with-maintenance-window example register instances that all have one or more tag keys assigned to them, regardless of their key values.

aws ssm register-target-with-maintenance-window \
    --window-id "mw-0c50858d01EXAMPLE" \
    --resource-type "INSTANCE" \
    --target "Key=tag-key,Values=Name,Instance-Type,CostCenter"

Output:

{
    "WindowTargetId":"1a2b3c4d-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b3c4d-1a2"
}

Example 5: To register targets using a resource group name

The following register-target-with-maintenance-window example register a specified resource group, regardless of the type of resources it contains.

aws ssm register-target-with-maintenance-window \
    --window-id "mw-0c50858d01EXAMPLE" \
    --resource-type "RESOURCE_GROUP" \
    --target "Key=resource-groups:Name,Values=MyResourceGroup"

Output:

{
    "WindowTargetId":"1a2b3c4d-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b-1a2b3c4d-1a2"
}

For more information, see Register a Target Instance with the Maintenance Window (AWS CLI) in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.

Output

WindowTargetId -> (string)

The ID of the target definition in this maintenance window.
