[ aws . connectcases ]



Creates a template in the Cases domain. This template is used to define the case object model (that is, to define what data can be captured on cases) in a Cases domain. A template must have a unique name within a domain, and it must reference existing field IDs and layout IDs. Additionally, multiple fields with same IDs are not allowed within the same Template. A template can be either Active or Inactive, as indicated by its status. Inactive templates cannot be used to create cases.

--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.
