--environment-id (string)

The ID of the environment to change settings.

--name (string)

A replacement name for the environment.

--description (string)

Any new or replacement description for the environment.

--managed-credentials-action (string)

Allows the environment owner to turn on or turn off the Amazon Web Services managed temporary credentials for an Cloud9 environment by using one of the following values:



Only the environment owner can change the status of managed temporary credentials. An AccessDeniedException is thrown if an attempt to turn on or turn off managed temporary credentials is made by an account that's not the environment owner.

Possible values:


--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.
