label-parameter-version

Description

A parameter label is a user-defined alias to help you manage different versions of a parameter. When you modify a parameter, Amazon Web Services Systems Manager automatically saves a new version and increments the version number by one. A label can help you remember the purpose of a parameter when there are multiple versions.

Parameter labels have the following requirements and restrictions.

  • A version of a parameter can have a maximum of 10 labels.
  • You can't attach the same label to different versions of the same parameter. For example, if version 1 has the label Production, then you can't attach Production to version 2.
  • You can move a label from one version of a parameter to another.
  • You can't create a label when you create a new parameter. You must attach a label to a specific version of a parameter.
  • If you no longer want to use a parameter label, then you can either delete it or move it to a different version of a parameter.
  • A label can have a maximum of 100 characters.
  • Labels can contain letters (case sensitive), numbers, periods (.), hyphens (-), or underscores (_).
  • Labels can't begin with a number, "aws " or "ssm " (not case sensitive). If a label fails to meet these requirements, then the label isn't associated with a parameter and the system displays it in the list of InvalidLabels.

Options

--name (string)

The parameter name on which you want to attach one or more labels.

--parameter-version (long)

The specific version of the parameter on which you want to attach one or more labels. If no version is specified, the system attaches the label to the latest version.

--labels (list)

One or more labels to attach to the specified parameter version.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To add a label to latest version of a parameter

The following label-parameter-version example adds a label to the latest version of the specified parameter.

aws ssm label-parameter-version \
    --name "MyStringParameter" \
    --labels "ProductionReady"

Output:

{
    "InvalidLabels": [],
    "ParameterVersion": 3
}

For more information, see Working with parameter labels in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.

Example 2: To add a label to a specific version of a parameter

The following label-parameter-version example adds a label to the specified version of a parameter.

aws ssm label-parameter-version \
    --name "MyStringParameter" \
    --labels "ProductionReady" \
    --parameter-version "2" --labels "DevelopmentReady"

For more information, see Working with parameter labels in the AWS Systems Manager User Guide.

Output

InvalidLabels -> (list)

The label doesn't meet the requirements. For information about parameter label requirements, see Labeling parameters in the Amazon Web Services Systems Manager User Guide .

(string)

ParameterVersion -> (long)

The version of the parameter that has been labeled.
