Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

AgentArns

The Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the agents that are used to connect to the HDFS cluster.

Type: Array of strings

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item. Maximum number of 4 items.

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: ^arn:(aws|aws-cn|aws-us-gov|aws-iso|aws-iso-b):datasync:[a-z\-0-9]+:[0-9]{12}:agent/agent-[0-9a-z]{17}$

Required: Yes

AuthenticationType

The type of authentication used to determine the identity of the user.

Type: String

Valid Values: SIMPLE | KERBEROS

Required: Yes

BlockSize

The size of data blocks to write into the HDFS cluster. The block size must be a multiple of 512 bytes. The default block size is 128 mebibytes (MiB).

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1048576. Maximum value of 1073741824.

Required: No

KerberosKeytab

The Kerberos key table (keytab) that contains mappings between the defined Kerberos principal and the encrypted keys. You can load the keytab from a file by providing the file's address. If you're using the AWS CLI, it performs base64 encoding for you. Otherwise, provide the base64-encoded text.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType, this parameter is required.

Type: Base64-encoded binary data object

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 65536.

Required: No

KerberosKrb5Conf

The krb5.conf file that contains the Kerberos configuration information. You can load the krb5.conf file by providing the file's address. If you're using the AWS CLI, it performs the base64 encoding for you. Otherwise, provide the base64-encoded text.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType, this parameter is required.

Type: Base64-encoded binary data object

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 131072.

Required: No

KerberosPrincipal

The Kerberos principal with access to the files and folders on the HDFS cluster.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType, this parameter is required.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Pattern: ^.+$

Required: No

KmsKeyProviderUri

The URI of the HDFS cluster's Key Management Server (KMS).

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 255.

Pattern: ^kms:\/\/http[s]?@(([a-zA-Z0-9\-]*[a-zA-Z0-9])\.)*([A-Za-z0-9\-]*[A-Za-z0-9])(;(([a-zA-Z0-9\-]*[a-zA-Z0-9])\.)*([A-Za-z0-9\-]*[A-Za-z0-9]))*:[0-9]{1,5}\/kms$

Required: No

NameNodes

The NameNode that manages the HDFS namespace. The NameNode performs operations such as opening, closing, and renaming files and directories. The NameNode contains the information to map blocks of data to the DataNodes. You can use only one NameNode.

Type: Array of HdfsNameNode objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item.

Required: Yes

QopConfiguration

The Quality of Protection (QOP) configuration specifies the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and data transfer protection settings configured on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) cluster. If QopConfiguration isn't specified, RpcProtection and DataTransferProtection default to PRIVACY. If you set RpcProtection or DataTransferProtection, the other parameter assumes the same value.

Type: QopConfiguration object

Required: No

ReplicationFactor

The number of DataNodes to replicate the data to when writing to the HDFS cluster. By default, data is replicated to three DataNodes.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 512.

Required: No

SimpleUser

The user name used to identify the client on the host operating system.

Note

If SIMPLE is specified for AuthenticationType, this parameter is required.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 256.

Pattern: ^[_.A-Za-z0-9][-_.A-Za-z0-9]*$

Required: No

Subdirectory

A subdirectory in the HDFS cluster. This subdirectory is used to read data from or write data to the HDFS cluster. If the subdirectory isn't specified, it will default to /.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 4096.

Pattern: ^[a-zA-Z0-9_\-\+\./\(\)\$\p{Zs}]+$

Required: No

Tags

The key-value pair that represents the tag that you want to add to the location. The value can be an empty string. We recommend using tags to name your resources.

Type: Array of TagListEntry objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 0 items. Maximum number of 50 items.

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "LocationArn": "string" }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

LocationArn

The ARN of the source HDFS cluster location that's created.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 128.

Pattern: ^arn:(aws|aws-cn|aws-us-gov|aws-iso|aws-iso-b):datasync:[a-z\-0-9]+:[0-9]{12}:location/loc-[0-9a-z]{17}$
