--cluster-id (string)

A unique string that identifies a cluster. The create-cluster command returns this identifier. You can use the list-clusters command to get cluster IDs.

--visible-to-all-users | --no-visible-to-all-users (boolean)

Specifies whether the cluster is visible to all IAM users of the AWS account associated with the cluster. If a user has the proper policy permissions set, they can also manage the cluster.

Visibility is on by default. The --no-visible-to-all-users option is no longer supported. To restrict cluster visibility, use an IAM policy.

--termination-protected | --no-termination-protected (boolean) Set termination protection on or off

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
