[ aws . configservice ]



Creates or updates a conformance pack. A conformance pack is a collection of Config rules that can be easily deployed in an account and a region and across Amazon Web Services Organization.

This API creates a service linked role AWSServiceRoleForConfigConforms in your account. The service linked role is created only when the role does not exist in your account.


You must specify either the TemplateS3Uri or the TemplateBody parameter, but not both. If you provide both Config uses the TemplateS3Uri parameter and ignores the TemplateBody parameter.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--conformance-pack-name <value>
[--template-s3-uri <value>]
[--template-body <value>]
[--delivery-s3-bucket <value>]
[--delivery-s3-key-prefix <value>]
[--conformance-pack-input-parameters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--conformance-pack-name (string)

Name of the conformance pack you want to create.

--template-s3-uri (string)

Location of file containing the template body (s3://bucketname/prefix ). The uri must point to the conformance pack template (max size: 300 KB) that is located in an Amazon S3 bucket in the same region as the conformance pack.


You must have access to read Amazon S3 bucket.

--template-body (string)

A string containing full conformance pack template body. Structure containing the template body with a minimum length of 1 byte and a maximum length of 51,200 bytes.


You can only use a YAML template with two resource types: Config rule (AWS::Config::ConfigRule ) and a remediation action (AWS::Config::RemediationConfiguration ).

--delivery-s3-bucket (string)

The name of the Amazon S3 bucket where Config stores conformance pack templates.


This field is optional.

--delivery-s3-key-prefix (string)

The prefix for the Amazon S3 bucket.


This field is optional.

--conformance-pack-input-parameters (list)

A list of ConformancePackInputParameter objects.


Input parameters in the form of key-value pairs for the conformance pack, both of which you define. Keys can have a maximum character length of 255 characters, and values can have a maximum length of 4096 characters.

ParameterName -> (string)

One part of a key-value pair.

ParameterValue -> (string)

Another part of the key-value pair.

Shorthand Syntax:

ParameterName=string,ParameterValue=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "ParameterName": "string",
    "ParameterValue": "string"

--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.


ConformancePackArn -> (string)

ARN of the conformance pack.
