--dataset-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Items dataset you are adding the item or items to.

--items (list)

A list of item data.


Represents item metadata added to an Items dataset using the PutItems API. For more information see Importing Items Incrementally .

itemId -> (string)

The ID associated with the item.

properties -> (string)

A string map of item-specific metadata. Each element in the map consists of a key-value pair. For example, {"numberOfRatings": "12"} .

The keys use camel case names that match the fields in the schema for the Items dataset. In the previous example, the numberOfRatings matches the 'NUMBER_OF_RATINGS' field defined in the Items schema. For categorical string data, to include multiple categories for a single item, separate each category with a pipe separator (| ). For example, \"Horror|Action\" .

Shorthand Syntax:

itemId=string,properties=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "itemId": "string",
    "properties": "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.
