parameter_validation - AWS SDKs and Tools Shared Configuration and Credentials

parameter_validation

Specifies whether the SDK or tool attempts to validate command line parameters before sending them to the AWS service endpoint.

Details

Default: true

Valid values:

  • true – The default. The SDK or tool performs client-side validation of command line parameters. This enables the SDK or tool to ensure that parameters are valid and catch some errors. The SDK or tool can reject invalid requests before sending requests to the AWS service endpoint.

  • false – The SDK or tool doesn't validate command line parameters before sending them to the AWS service endpoint. The AWS service endpoint is responsible for validating all requests and rejecting invalid requests.
