CreateView - Amazon Connect


Creates a new view with the possible status of SAVED or PUBLISHED.

The views will have a unique name for each connect instance.

It performs basic content validation if the status is SAVED or full content validation if the status is set to PUBLISHED. An error is returned if validation fails. It associates either the $SAVED qualifier or both of the $SAVED and $LATEST qualifiers with the provided view content based on the status. The view is idempotent if ClientToken is provided.
