Description

Creates a new ledger in your account in the current Region.

Parameters

-DeletionProtection <Boolean>
The flag that prevents a ledger from being deleted by any user. If not provided on ledger creation, this feature is enabled (true) by default.If deletion protection is enabled, you must first disable it before you can delete the ledger. You can disable it by calling the UpdateLedger operation to set the flag to false.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
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?True (ByPropertyName)
-KmsKey <String>
The key in Key Management Service (KMS) to use for encryption of data at rest in the ledger. For more information, see Encryption at rest in the Amazon QLDB Developer Guide.Use one of the following options to specify this parameter:
  • AWS_OWNED_KMS_KEY: Use an KMS key that is owned and managed by Amazon Web Services on your behalf.
  • Undefined: By default, use an Amazon Web Services owned KMS key.
  • A valid symmetric customer managed KMS key: Use the specified KMS key in your account that you create, own, and manage.Amazon QLDB does not support asymmetric keys. For more information, see Using symmetric and asymmetric keys in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.
To specify a customer managed KMS key, you can use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/". To specify a key in a different account, you must use the key ARN or alias ARN.For example:
  • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab
  • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias
  • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias
For more information, see Key identifiers (KeyId) in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Name <String>
The name of the ledger that you want to create. The name must be unique among all of the ledgers in your account in the current Region.Naming constraints for ledger names are defined in Quotas in Amazon QLDB in the Amazon QLDB Developer Guide.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the Name parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^Name' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PermissionsMode <PermissionsMode>
The permissions mode to assign to the ledger that you want to create. This parameter can have one of the following values:
  • ALLOW_ALL: A legacy permissions mode that enables access control with API-level granularity for ledgers.This mode allows users who have the SendCommand API permission for this ledger to run all PartiQL commands (hence, ALLOW_ALL) on any tables in the specified ledger. This mode disregards any table-level or command-level IAM permissions policies that you create for the ledger.
  • STANDARD: (Recommended) A permissions mode that enables access control with finer granularity for ledgers, tables, and PartiQL commands.By default, this mode denies all user requests to run any PartiQL commands on any tables in this ledger. To allow PartiQL commands to run, you must create IAM permissions policies for specific table resources and PartiQL actions, in addition to the SendCommand API permission for the ledger. For information, see Getting started with the standard permissions mode in the Amazon QLDB Developer Guide.
We strongly recommend using the STANDARD permissions mode to maximize the security of your ledger data.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is '*'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.QLDB.Model.CreateLedgerResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.QLDB.Model.CreateLedgerResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Tag <Hashtable>
The key-value pairs to add as tags to the ledger that you want to create. Tag keys are case sensitive. Tag values are case sensitive and can be null.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesTags

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

Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-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?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile.

This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named

-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.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

AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information.
