Options

--server-id (string)

A system-assigned unique identifier for a server.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

Server -> (structure)

An array containing the properties of a server with the ServerID you specified.

Arn -> (string)

Specifies the unique Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the server.

Certificate -> (string)

Specifies the ARN of the Amazon Web ServicesCertificate Manager (ACM) certificate. Required when Protocols is set to FTPS .

ProtocolDetails -> (structure)

The protocol settings that are configured for your server.

  • To indicate passive mode (for FTP and FTPS protocols), use the PassiveIp parameter. Enter a single dotted-quad IPv4 address, such as the external IP address of a firewall, router, or load balancer.
  • To ignore the error that is generated when the client attempts to use the SETSTAT command on a file that you are uploading to an Amazon S3 bucket, use the SetStatOption parameter. To have the Transfer Family server ignore the SETSTAT command and upload files without needing to make any changes to your SFTP client, set the value to ENABLE_NO_OP . If you set the SetStatOption parameter to ENABLE_NO_OP , Transfer Family generates a log entry to Amazon CloudWatch Logs, so that you can determine when the client is making a SETSTAT call.
  • To determine whether your Transfer Family server resumes recent, negotiated sessions through a unique session ID, use the TlsSessionResumptionMode parameter.
  • As2Transports indicates the transport method for the AS2 messages. Currently, only HTTP is supported.

PassiveIp -> (string)

Indicates passive mode, for FTP and FTPS protocols. Enter a single IPv4 address, such as the public IP address of a firewall, router, or load balancer. For example:

``aws transfer update-server --protocol-details PassiveIp=*0.0.0.0* ``

Replace `` 0.0.0.0 `` in the example above with the actual IP address you want to use.

Note

If you change the PassiveIp value, you must stop and then restart your Transfer Family server for the change to take effect. For details on using passive mode (PASV) in a NAT environment, see Configuring your FTPS server behind a firewall or NAT with Transfer Family .

TlsSessionResumptionMode -> (string)

A property used with Transfer Family servers that use the FTPS protocol. TLS Session Resumption provides a mechanism to resume or share a negotiated secret key between the control and data connection for an FTPS session. TlsSessionResumptionMode determines whether or not the server resumes recent, negotiated sessions through a unique session ID. This property is available during CreateServer and UpdateServer calls. If a TlsSessionResumptionMode value is not specified during CreateServer , it is set to ENFORCED by default.

  • DISABLED : the server does not process TLS session resumption client requests and creates a new TLS session for each request.
  • ENABLED : the server processes and accepts clients that are performing TLS session resumption. The server doesn't reject client data connections that do not perform the TLS session resumption client processing.
  • ENFORCED : the server processes and accepts clients that are performing TLS session resumption. The server rejects client data connections that do not perform the TLS session resumption client processing. Before you set the value to ENFORCED , test your clients.

Note

Not all FTPS clients perform TLS session resumption. So, if you choose to enforce TLS session resumption, you prevent any connections from FTPS clients that don't perform the protocol negotiation. To determine whether or not you can use the ENFORCED value, you need to test your clients.

SetStatOption -> (string)

Use the SetStatOption to ignore the error that is generated when the client attempts to use SETSTAT on a file you are uploading to an S3 bucket.

Some SFTP file transfer clients can attempt to change the attributes of remote files, including timestamp and permissions, using commands, such as SETSTAT when uploading the file. However, these commands are not compatible with object storage systems, such as Amazon S3. Due to this incompatibility, file uploads from these clients can result in errors even when the file is otherwise successfully uploaded.

Set the value to ENABLE_NO_OP to have the Transfer Family server ignore the SETSTAT command, and upload files without needing to make any changes to your SFTP client. While the SetStatOption ENABLE_NO_OP setting ignores the error, it does generate a log entry in Amazon CloudWatch Logs, so you can determine when the client is making a SETSTAT call.

Note

If you want to preserve the original timestamp for your file, and modify other file attributes using SETSTAT , you can use Amazon EFS as backend storage with Transfer Family.

As2Transports -> (list)

Indicates the transport method for the AS2 messages. Currently, only HTTP is supported.

(string)

Domain -> (string)

Specifies the domain of the storage system that is used for file transfers.

EndpointDetails -> (structure)

The virtual private cloud (VPC) endpoint settings that are configured for your server. When you host your endpoint within your VPC, you can make your endpoint accessible only to resources within your VPC, or you can attach Elastic IP addresses and make your endpoint accessible to clients over the internet. Your VPC's default security groups are automatically assigned to your endpoint.

AddressAllocationIds -> (list)

A list of address allocation IDs that are required to attach an Elastic IP address to your server's endpoint.

Note

This property can only be set when EndpointType is set to VPC and it is only valid in the UpdateServer API.

(string)

SubnetIds -> (list)

A list of subnet IDs that are required to host your server endpoint in your VPC.

Note

This property can only be set when EndpointType is set to VPC .

(string)

VpcEndpointId -> (string)

The ID of the VPC endpoint.

Note

This property can only be set when EndpointType is set to VPC_ENDPOINT .

For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/transfer/latest/userguide/create-server-in-vpc.html#deprecate-vpc-endpoint.

VpcId -> (string)

The VPC ID of the VPC in which a server's endpoint will be hosted.

Note

This property can only be set when EndpointType is set to VPC .

SecurityGroupIds -> (list)

A list of security groups IDs that are available to attach to your server's endpoint.

Note

This property can only be set when EndpointType is set to VPC .

You can edit the SecurityGroupIds property in the UpdateServer API only if you are changing the EndpointType from PUBLIC or VPC_ENDPOINT to VPC . To change security groups associated with your server's VPC endpoint after creation, use the Amazon EC2 ModifyVpcEndpoint API.

(string)

EndpointType -> (string)

Defines the type of endpoint that your server is connected to. If your server is connected to a VPC endpoint, your server isn't accessible over the public internet.

HostKeyFingerprint -> (string)

Specifies the Base64-encoded SHA256 fingerprint of the server's host key. This value is equivalent to the output of the ssh-keygen -l -f my-new-server-key command.

IdentityProviderDetails -> (structure)

Specifies information to call a customer-supplied authentication API. This field is not populated when the IdentityProviderType of a server is AWS_DIRECTORY_SERVICE or SERVICE_MANAGED .

Url -> (string)

Provides the location of the service endpoint used to authenticate users.

InvocationRole -> (string)

Provides the type of InvocationRole used to authenticate the user account.

DirectoryId -> (string)

The identifier of the Directory Service directory that you want to stop sharing.

Function -> (string)

The ARN for a lambda function to use for the Identity provider.

IdentityProviderType -> (string)

The mode of authentication for a server. The default value is SERVICE_MANAGED , which allows you to store and access user credentials within the Transfer Family service.

Use AWS_DIRECTORY_SERVICE to provide access to Active Directory groups in Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory or Microsoft Active Directory in your on-premises environment or in Amazon Web Services using AD Connector. This option also requires you to provide a Directory ID by using the IdentityProviderDetails parameter.

Use the API_GATEWAY value to integrate with an identity provider of your choosing. The API_GATEWAY setting requires you to provide an Amazon API Gateway endpoint URL to call for authentication by using the IdentityProviderDetails parameter.

Use the AWS_LAMBDA value to directly use an Lambda function as your identity provider. If you choose this value, you must specify the ARN for the Lambda function in the Function parameter or the IdentityProviderDetails data type.

LoggingRole -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that allows a server to turn on Amazon CloudWatch logging for Amazon S3 or Amazon EFSevents. When set, you can view user activity in your CloudWatch logs.

PostAuthenticationLoginBanner -> (string)

Specifies a string to display when users connect to a server. This string is displayed after the user authenticates.

Note

The SFTP protocol does not support post-authentication display banners.

PreAuthenticationLoginBanner -> (string)

Specifies a string to display when users connect to a server. This string is displayed before the user authenticates. For example, the following banner displays details about using the system:

This system is for the use of authorized users only. Individuals using this computer system without authority, or in excess of their authority, are subject to having all of their activities on this system monitored and recorded by system personnel.

Protocols -> (list)

Specifies the file transfer protocol or protocols over which your file transfer protocol client can connect to your server's endpoint. The available protocols are:

  • SFTP (Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol): File transfer over SSH
  • FTPS (File Transfer Protocol Secure): File transfer with TLS encryption
  • FTP (File Transfer Protocol): Unencrypted file transfer
  • AS2 (Applicability Statement 2): used for transporting structured business-to-business data

Note

  • If you select FTPS , you must choose a certificate stored in Certificate Manager (ACM) which is used to identify your server when clients connect to it over FTPS.
  • If Protocol includes either FTP or FTPS , then the EndpointType must be VPC and the IdentityProviderType must be AWS_DIRECTORY_SERVICE or API_GATEWAY .
  • If Protocol includes FTP , then AddressAllocationIds cannot be associated.
  • If Protocol is set only to SFTP , the EndpointType can be set to PUBLIC and the IdentityProviderType can be set to SERVICE_MANAGED .
  • If Protocol includes AS2 , then the EndpointType must be VPC , and domain must be Amazon S3.

(string)

SecurityPolicyName -> (string)

Specifies the name of the security policy that is attached to the server.

ServerId -> (string)

Specifies the unique system-assigned identifier for a server that you instantiate.

State -> (string)

The condition of the server that was described. A value of ONLINE indicates that the server can accept jobs and transfer files. A State value of OFFLINE means that the server cannot perform file transfer operations.

The states of STARTING and STOPPING indicate that the server is in an intermediate state, either not fully able to respond, or not fully offline. The values of START_FAILED or STOP_FAILED can indicate an error condition.

Tags -> (list)

Specifies the key-value pairs that you can use to search for and group servers that were assigned to the server that was described.

(structure)

Creates a key-value pair for a specific resource. Tags are metadata that you can use to search for and group a resource for various purposes. You can apply tags to servers, users, and roles. A tag key can take more than one value. For example, to group servers for accounting purposes, you might create a tag called Group and assign the values Research and Accounting to that group.

Key -> (string)

The name assigned to the tag that you create.

Value -> (string)

Contains one or more values that you assigned to the key name you create.

UserCount -> (integer)

Specifies the number of users that are assigned to a server you specified with the ServerId .
