Options

--lens-alias (string)

The alias of the lens.

For Amazon Web Services official lenses, this is either the lens alias, such as serverless , or the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-west-2::lens/serverless .

For custom lenses, this is the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-east-1:123456789012:lens/my-lens .

Each lens is identified by its LensSummary$LensAlias .

--json-string (string)

The JSON representation of a lens.

--client-request-token (string)

A unique case-sensitive string used to ensure that this request is idempotent (executes only once).

You should not reuse the same token for other requests. If you retry a request with the same client request token and the same parameters after it has completed successfully, the result of the original request is returned.

Warning

This token is listed as required, however, if you do not specify it, the Amazon Web Services SDKs automatically generate one for you. If you are not using the Amazon Web Services SDK or the CLI, you must provide this token or the request will fail.

--tags (map)

Tags to associate to a lens.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)
