Options

--name (string)

The query name.

--description (string)

The query description.

--database (string)

The database to which the query belongs.

--query-string (string)

The contents of the query with all query statements.

--client-request-token (string)

A unique case-sensitive string used to ensure the request to create the query is idempotent (executes only once). If another CreateNamedQuery request is received, the same response is returned and another query is not created. If a parameter has changed, for example, the QueryString , an error is returned.

Warning

This token is listed as not required because Amazon Web Services SDKs (for example the Amazon Web Services SDK for Java) auto-generate the token for users. If you are not using the Amazon Web Services SDK or the Amazon Web Services CLI, you must provide this token or the action will fail.

--work-group (string)

The name of the workgroup in which the named query is being created.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To create a named query

The following create-named-query example creates a saved query in the AthenaAdmin workgroup that queries the flights_parquet table for flights from Seattle to New York in January, 2016 whose departure and arrival were both delayed by more than ten minutes. Because the airport code values in the table are strings that include double quotes (for example, "SEA"), they are escaped by backslashes and surrounded by single quotes.

aws athena create-named-query \
    --name "SEA to JFK delayed flights Jan 2016" \
    --description "Both arrival and departure delayed more than 10 minutes." \
    --database sampledb \
    --query-string "SELECT flightdate, carrier, flightnum, origin, dest, depdelayminutes, arrdelayminutes FROM sampledb.flights_parquet WHERE yr = 2016 AND month = 1 AND origin = '\"SEA\"' AND dest = '\"JFK\"' AND depdelayminutes > 10 AND arrdelayminutes > 10" \
    --work-group AthenaAdmin

Output:

{
    "NamedQueryId": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-EXAMPLE11111"
}

Output

NamedQueryId -> (string)

The unique ID of the query.
