--client-id <value>
--client-secret <value>
--start-url <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--client-id (string)

The unique identifier string for the client that is registered with AWS SSO. This value should come from the persisted result of the RegisterClient API operation.

--client-secret (string)

A secret string that is generated for the client. This value should come from the persisted result of the RegisterClient API operation.

--start-url (string)

The URL for the AWS SSO user portal. For more information, see Using the User Portal in the AWS Single Sign-On User Guide .

--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.
