The unique ID for an Amplify app.

--branch-name (string)

The name for the branch.

--description (string)

The description for the branch.

--stage (string)

Describes the current stage for the branch.

Possible values:

The basic authorization credentials for the branch.

--enable-basic-auth | --no-enable-basic-auth (boolean)

Enables basic authorization for the branch.

--enable-performance-mode | --no-enable-performance-mode (boolean)

Performance mode optimizes for faster hosting performance by keeping content cached at the edge for a longer interval. Enabling performance mode will mean that hosting configuration or code changes can take up to 10 minutes to roll out.

--tags (map)

The tag for the branch.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

--pull-request-environment-name (string)

The Amplify environment name for the pull request.

--backend-environment-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for a backend environment that is part of an Amplify app.

--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.
