--instance-arn (string)

The ARN of the SSO instance under which the operation will be executed. For more information about ARNs, see Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) and AWS Service Namespaces in the AWS General Reference .

--permission-set-arn (string)

The ARN of the permission set.

TargetID is an AWS account identifier, typically a 10-12 digit string (For example, 123456789012).

--target-type (string)

The entity type for which the assignment will be created.

Possible values:


--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.
