--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.

Examples

To create a WorkSpace

This example creates a WorkSpace for user jimsmith in the specified directory, from the specified bundle.

Command:

aws workspaces create-workspaces --cli-input-json file://create-workspaces.json

Input:

This is the contents of the create-workspaces.json file:

{
  "Workspaces" : [
    {
      "DirectoryId" : "d-906732325d",
      "UserName" : "jimsmith",
      "BundleId" : "wsb-b0s22j3d7"
    }
  ]
}

Output:

{
  "PendingRequests" : [
    {
      "UserName" : "jimsmith",
      "DirectoryId" : "d-906732325d",
      "State" : "PENDING",
      "WorkspaceId" : "ws-0d4y2sbl5",
      "BundleId" : "wsb-b0s22j3d7"
    }
