Options

--certificate (string)

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

To request a new public certificate, see Request a public certificate in the Amazon Web ServicesCertificate Manager User Guide .

To import an existing certificate into ACM, see Importing certificates into ACM in the Amazon Web ServicesCertificate Manager User Guide .

To request a private certificate to use FTPS through private IP addresses, see Request a private certificate in the Amazon Web ServicesCertificate Manager User Guide .

Certificates with the following cryptographic algorithms and key sizes are supported:

  • 2048-bit RSA (RSA_2048)
  • 4096-bit RSA (RSA_4096)
  • Elliptic Prime Curve 256 bit (EC_prime256v1)
  • Elliptic Prime Curve 384 bit (EC_secp384r1)
  • Elliptic Prime Curve 521 bit (EC_secp521r1)

Note

The certificate must be a valid SSL/TLS X.509 version 3 certificate with FQDN or IP address specified and information about the issuer.

--protocol-details (structure)

The protocol settings that are configured for your server.

Use the PassiveIp parameter to indicate passive mode (for FTP and FTPS protocols). Enter a single dotted-quad IPv4 address, such as the external IP address of a firewall, router, or load balancer.

PassiveIp -> (string)

Indicates passive mode, for FTP and FTPS protocols. Enter a single dotted-quad IPv4 address, such as the external 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 server for the change to take effect. For details on using Passive IP (PASV) in a NAT environment, see Configuring your FTPS server behind a firewall or NAT with Amazon Web Services Transfer Family .

Shorthand Syntax:

PassiveIp=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "PassiveIp": "string"
}

--endpoint-details (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 it accessible only to resources within your VPC, or you can attach Elastic IP addresses and make it 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)

Shorthand Syntax:

AddressAllocationIds=string,string,SubnetIds=string,string,VpcEndpointId=string,VpcId=string,SecurityGroupIds=string,string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "AddressAllocationIds": ["string", ...],
  "SubnetIds": ["string", ...],
  "VpcEndpointId": "string",
  "VpcId": "string",
  "SecurityGroupIds": ["string", ...]
}

--endpoint-type (string)

The type of endpoint that you want your server to use. You can choose to make your server's endpoint publicly accessible (PUBLIC) or host it inside your VPC. With an endpoint that is hosted in a VPC, you can restrict access to your server and resources only within your VPC or choose to make it internet facing by attaching Elastic IP addresses directly to it.

Note

After May 19, 2021, you won't be able to create a server using EndpointType=VPC_ENDPOINT in your Amazon Web Servicesaccount if your account hasn't already done so before May 19, 2021. If you have already created servers with EndpointType=VPC_ENDPOINT in your Amazon Web Servicesaccount on or before May 19, 2021, you will not be affected. After this date, use EndpointType =``VPC`` .

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

It is recommended that you use VPC as the EndpointType . With this endpoint type, you have the option to directly associate up to three Elastic IPv4 addresses (BYO IP included) with your server's endpoint and use VPC security groups to restrict traffic by the client's public IP address. This is not possible with EndpointType set to VPC_ENDPOINT .

Possible values:

  • PUBLIC
  • VPC
  • VPC_ENDPOINT

--host-key (string)

The RSA private key as generated by ssh-keygen -N "" -m PEM -f my-new-server-key .

Warning

If you aren't planning to migrate existing users from an existing server to a new server, don't update the host key. Accidentally changing a server's host key can be disruptive.

For more information, see Change the host key for your SFTP-enabled server in the Amazon Web ServicesTransfer Family User Guide .

--identity-provider-details (structure)

An array containing all of the information required to call a customer's authentication API method.

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 Amazon Web ServicesDirectory Service directory that you want to stop sharing.

Shorthand Syntax:

Url=string,InvocationRole=string,DirectoryId=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Url": "string",
  "InvocationRole": "string",
  "DirectoryId": "string"
}

--logging-role (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Amazon Web Services Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that allows a server to turn on Amazon CloudWatch logging for Amazon S3 or Amazon EFS events. When set, user activity can be viewed in your CloudWatch logs.

--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:

  • Secure Shell (SSH) File Transfer Protocol (SFTP): File transfer over SSH
  • File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS): File transfer with TLS encryption
  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP): Unencrypted file transfer

Note

If you select FTPS , you must choose a certificate stored in Amazon Web ServicesCertificate Manager (ACM) which will be 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 .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

Where valid values are:
  SFTP
  FTP
  FTPS

--security-policy-name (string)

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

--server-id (string)

OnUpload -> (list)

A trigger that starts a workflow: the workflow begins to execute after a file is uploaded.

(structure)

Specifies the workflow ID for the workflow to assign and the execution role used for executing the workflow.

WorkflowId -> (string)

A unique identifier for the workflow.

ExecutionRole -> (string)

Includes the necessary permissions for S3, EFS, and Lambda operations that Transfer can assume, so that all workflow steps can operate on the required resources

Shorthand Syntax:

OnUpload=[{WorkflowId=string,ExecutionRole=string},{WorkflowId=string,ExecutionRole=string}]

JSON Syntax:

{
  "OnUpload": [
    {
      "WorkflowId": "string",
      "ExecutionRole": "string"
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--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

ServerId -> (string)

A system-assigned unique identifier for a server that the user account is assigned to.
