Synopsis

Calls the AWS OpsWorksCM ExportServerEngineAttribute API operation.

Syntax

Export-OWCMServerEngineAttribute
-ServerName <String>
-ExportAttributeName <String>
-InputAttribute <EngineAttribute[]>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Exports a specified server engine attribute as a base64-encoded string. For example, you can export user data that you can use in EC2 to associate nodes with a server. This operation is synchronous. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid. A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when the server does not exist. An InvalidStateException is thrown when the server is in any of the following states: CREATING, TERMINATED, FAILED or DELETING.

Parameters

-ExportAttributeName <String>
The name of the export attribute. Currently, the supported export attribute is Userdata. This exports a user data script that includes parameters and values provided in the InputAttributes list.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-InputAttribute <EngineAttribute[]>
The list of engine attributes. The list type is EngineAttribute. An EngineAttribute list item is a pair that includes an attribute name and its value. For the Userdata ExportAttributeName, the following are supported engine attribute names.
  • RunList In Chef, a list of roles or recipes that are run in the specified order. In Puppet, this parameter is ignored.
  • OrganizationName In Chef, an organization name. AWS OpsWorks for Chef Automate always creates the organization default. In Puppet, this parameter is ignored.
  • NodeEnvironment In Chef, a node environment (for example, development, staging, or one-box). In Puppet, this parameter is ignored.
  • NodeClientVersion In Chef, the version of the Chef engine (three numbers separated by dots, such as 13.8.5). If this attribute is empty, OpsWorks for Chef Automate uses the most current version. In Puppet, this parameter is ignored.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
AliasesInputAttributes
-ServerName <String>
The name of the server from which you are exporting the attribute.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the ServerName parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a Amazon.OpsWorksCM.Model.ExportServerEngineAttributeResponse object containing multiple properties. The object can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
