[ aws . storagegateway ]

create-nfs-file-share

Description

Creates a Network File System (NFS) file share on an existing S3 File Gateway. In Storage Gateway, a file share is a file system mount point backed by Amazon S3 cloud storage. Storage Gateway exposes file shares using an NFS interface. This operation is only supported for S3 File Gateways.

Warning

S3 File gateway requires Security Token Service (Amazon Web Services STS) to be activated to enable you to create a file share. Make sure Amazon Web Services STS is activated in the Amazon Web Services Region you are creating your S3 File Gateway in. If Amazon Web Services STS is not activated in the Amazon Web Services Region, activate it. For information about how to activate Amazon Web Services STS, see Activating and deactivating Amazon Web Services STS in an Amazon Web Services Region in the Identity and Access Management User Guide .

S3 File Gateways do not support creating hard or symbolic links on a file share.

  "OwnerId": long
}

--gateway-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the S3 File Gateway on which you want to create a file share.

--kms-encrypted | --no-kms-encrypted (boolean)

Set to true to use Amazon S3 server-side encryption with your own KMS key, or false to use a key managed by Amazon S3. Optional.

Valid Values: true | false

--kms-key (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a symmetric customer master key (CMK) used for Amazon S3 server-side encryption. Storage Gateway does not support asymmetric CMKs. This value can only be set when KMSEncrypted is true . Optional.

--role (string)

The ARN of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that an S3 File Gateway assumes when it accesses the underlying storage.

--location-arn (string)

A custom ARN for the backend storage used for storing data for file shares. It includes a resource ARN with an optional prefix concatenation. The prefix must end with a forward slash (/).

Note

You can specify LocationARN as a bucket ARN, access point ARN or access point alias, as shown in the following examples.

Bucket ARN:

arn:aws:s3:::my-bucket/prefix/

Access point ARN:

arn:aws:s3:region:account-id:accesspoint/access-point-name/prefix/

If you specify an access point, the bucket policy must be configured to delegate access control to the access point. For information, see Delegating access control to access points in the Amazon S3 User Guide .

Access point alias:

test-ap-ab123cdef4gehijklmn5opqrstuvuse1a-s3alias

--default-storage-class (string)

The default storage class for objects put into an Amazon S3 bucket by the S3 File Gateway. The default value is S3_INTELLIGENT_TIERING . Optional.

Valid Values: S3_STANDARD | S3_INTELLIGENT_TIERING | S3_STANDARD_IA | S3_ONEZONE_IA

--object-acl (string)

A value that sets the access control list (ACL) permission for objects in the S3 bucket that a S3 File Gateway puts objects into. The default value is private .

Possible values:

  • private
  • public-read
  • public-read-write
  • authenticated-read
  • bucket-owner-read
  • bucket-owner-full-control
  • aws-exec-read

--client-list (list)

The list of clients that are allowed to access the S3 File Gateway. The list must contain either valid IP addresses or valid CIDR blocks.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--squash (string)

A value that maps a user to anonymous user.

Valid values are the following:

  • RootSquash : Only root is mapped to anonymous user.
  • NoSquash : No one is mapped to anonymous user.
  • AllSquash : Everyone is mapped to anonymous user.

--read-only | --no-read-only (boolean)

A value that sets the write status of a file share. Set this value to true to set the write status to read-only, otherwise set to false .

Valid Values: true | false

--guess-mime-type-enabled | --no-guess-mime-type-enabled (boolean)

A value that enables guessing of the MIME type for uploaded objects based on file extensions. Set this value to true to enable MIME type guessing, otherwise set to false . The default value is true .

Valid Values: true | false

--requester-pays | --no-requester-pays (boolean)

A value that sets who pays the cost of the request and the cost associated with data download from the S3 bucket. If this value is set to true , the requester pays the costs; otherwise, the S3 bucket owner pays. However, the S3 bucket owner always pays the cost of storing data.

Note

RequesterPays is a configuration for the S3 bucket that backs the file share, so make sure that the configuration on the file share is the same as the S3 bucket configuration.

Valid Values: true | false

--tags (list)

A list of up to 50 tags that can be assigned to the NFS file share. Each tag is a key-value pair.

Note

Valid characters for key and value are letters, spaces, and numbers representable in UTF-8 format, and the following special characters: + - = . _ : / @. The maximum length of a tag's key is 128 characters, and the maximum length for a tag's value is 256.

(structure)

A key-value pair that helps you manage, filter, and search for your resource. Allowed characters: letters, white space, and numbers, representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : /.

Key -> (string)

Tag key. The key can't start with aws:.

Value -> (string)

Value of the tag key.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

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

--file-share-name (string)

The name of the file share. Optional.

Note

FileShareName must be set if an S3 prefix name is set in LocationARN , or if an access point or access point alias is used.

--cache-attributes (structure)

Specifies refresh cache information for the file share.

CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds -> (integer)

Refreshes a file share's cache by using Time To Live (TTL). TTL is the length of time since the last refresh after which access to the directory would cause the file gateway to first refresh that directory's contents from the Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon FSx file system. The TTL duration is in seconds.

Valid Values:0, 300 to 2,592,000 seconds (5 minutes to 30 days)

Shorthand Syntax:

CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds": integer
}

--notification-policy (string)

The notification policy of the file share. SettlingTimeInSeconds controls the number of seconds to wait after the last point in time a client wrote to a file before generating an ObjectUploaded notification. Because clients can make many small writes to files, it's best to set this parameter for as long as possible to avoid generating multiple notifications for the same file in a small time period.

Note

SettlingTimeInSeconds has no effect on the timing of the object uploading to Amazon S3, only the timing of the notification.

The following example sets NotificationPolicy on with SettlingTimeInSeconds set to 60.

{\"Upload\": {\"SettlingTimeInSeconds\": 60}}

The following example sets NotificationPolicy off.

{}

--vpc-endpoint-dns-name (string)

Specifies the DNS name for the VPC endpoint that the NFS file share uses to connect to Amazon S3.

Note

This parameter is required for NFS file shares that connect to Amazon S3 through a VPC endpoint, a VPC access point, or an access point alias that points to a VPC access point.

--bucket-region (string)

Specifies the Region of the S3 bucket where the NFS file share stores files.

Note

This parameter is required for NFS file shares that connect to Amazon S3 through a VPC endpoint, a VPC access point, or an access point alias that points to a VPC access point.

--audit-destination-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the storage used for audit logs.

--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.

Output

FileShareARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the newly created file share.
