[ aws . workmailmessageflow ]



Updates the raw content of an in-transit email message, in MIME format.

This example describes how to update in-transit email message. For more information and examples for using this API, see Updating message content with AWS Lambda .


Updates to an in-transit message only appear when you call PutRawMessageContent from an AWS Lambda function configured with a synchronous Run Lambda rule. If you call PutRawMessageContent on a delivered or sent message, the message remains unchanged, even though GetRawMessageContent returns an updated message.

--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.
