create-case

Description

Creates a case in the Amazon Web Services Support Center. This operation is similar to how you create a case in the Amazon Web Services Support Center Create Case page.

The Amazon Web Services Support API doesn't support requesting service limit increases. You can submit a service limit increase in the following ways:

A successful CreateCase request returns an Amazon Web Services Support case number. You can use the DescribeCases operation and specify the case number to get existing Amazon Web Services Support cases. After you create a case, use the AddCommunicationToCase operation to add additional communication or attachments to an existing case.

The caseId is separate from the displayId that appears in the Amazon Web Services Support Center . Use the DescribeCases operation to get the displayId .

Note

  • You must have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan to use the Amazon Web Services Support API.
  • If you call the Amazon Web Services Support API from an account that does not have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan, the SubscriptionRequiredException error message appears. For information about changing your support plan, see Amazon Web Services Support .

Options

--subject (string)

The title of the support case. The title appears in the Subject field on the Amazon Web Services Support Center Create Case page.

--service-code (string)

The code for the Amazon Web Services service. You can use the DescribeServices operation to get the possible serviceCode values.

--severity-code (string)

A value that indicates the urgency of the case. This value determines the response time according to your service level agreement with Amazon Web Services Support. You can use the DescribeSeverityLevels operation to get the possible values for severityCode .

For more information, see SeverityLevel and Choosing a Severity in the Amazon Web Services Support User Guide .

Note

The availability of severity levels depends on the support plan for the Amazon Web Services account.

--category-code (string)

The category of problem for the support case. You also use the DescribeServices operation to get the category code for a service. Each Amazon Web Services service defines its own set of category codes.

--communication-body (string)

The communication body text that describes the issue. This text appears in the Description field on the Amazon Web Services Support Center Create Case page.

--cc-email-addresses (list)

A list of email addresses that Amazon Web Services Support copies on case correspondence. Amazon Web Services Support identifies the account that creates the case when you specify your Amazon Web Services credentials in an HTTP POST method or use the Amazon Web Services SDKs .

--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.
