register-thing

Description

Provisions a thing in the device registry. RegisterThing calls other AWS IoT control plane APIs. These calls might exceed your account level AWS IoT Throttling Limits and cause throttle errors. Please contact AWS Customer Support to raise your throttling limits if necessary.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  register-thing
--template-body <value>
[--parameters <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--template-body (string)

The provisioning template. See Provisioning Devices That Have Device Certificates for more information.

--parameters (map)

The parameters for provisioning a thing. See Provisioning Templates for more information.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string

JSON 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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To register a thing

The following register-thing example registers a thing using a provisioning template.

aws iot register-thing \
    --template-body '{"Parameters":{"ThingName":{"Type":"String"},"AWS::IoT::Certificate::Id":{"Type":"String"}},"Resources": {"certificate":{"Properties":{"CertificateId":{"Ref":"AWS::IoT::Certificate::Id"},"Status":"Active"},"Type":"AWS::IoT::Certificate"},"policy":{"Properties":{"PolicyName":"MyIotPolicy"},"Type":"AWS::IoT::Policy"},"thing":{"OverrideSettings":{"AttributePayload":"MERGE","ThingGroups":"DO_NOTHING","ThingTypeName":"REPLACE"},"Properties":{"AttributePayload":{},"ThingGroups":[],"ThingName":{"Ref":"ThingName"},"ThingTypeName":"VirtualThings"},"Type":"AWS::IoT::Thing"}}}' \
    --parameters '{"ThingName":"Register-thing-trial-1","AWS::IoT::Certificate::Id":"799a9ea048a1e6aea42b55EXAMPLEf8697b4bafcd77a318a3068e30404b9233c"}'
