[--note <value>]

--page-id (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the engagement to a contact channel.

--contact-channel-id (string)

The ARN of the contact channel.

--accept-type (string)

The type indicates if the page was DELIVERED or READ .

Possible values:

  • READ

--note (string)

Information provided by the user when the user acknowledges the page.

--accept-code (string)

The accept code is a 6-digit code used to acknowledge the page.

--accept-code-validation (string)

An optional field that Incident Manager uses to ENFORCE AcceptCode validation when acknowledging an page. Acknowledgement can occur by replying to a page, or when entering the AcceptCode in the console. Enforcing AcceptCode validation causes Incident Manager to verify that the code entered by the user matches the code sent by Incident Manager with the page.

Incident Manager can also IGNORE AcceptCode validation. Ignoring AcceptCode validation causes Incident Manager to accept any value entered for the AcceptCode .

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.
