Options

--container-name (string)

The name for the container. The name must be from 1 to 255 characters. Container names must be unique to your AWS account within a specific region. As an example, you could create a container named movies in every region, as long as you don’t have an existing container with that name.

--tags (list)

An array of key:value pairs that you define. These values can be anything that you want. Typically, the tag key represents a category (such as "environment") and the tag value represents a specific value within that category (such as "test," "development," or "production"). You can add up to 50 tags to each container. For more information about tagging, including naming and usage conventions, see Tagging Resources in MediaStore .

(structure)

A collection of tags associated with a container. Each tag consists of a key:value pair, which can be anything you define. Typically, the tag key represents a category (such as "environment") and the tag value represents a specific value within that category (such as "test," "development," or "production"). You can add up to 50 tags to each container. For more information about tagging, including naming and usage conventions, see Tagging Resources in MediaStore .

Key -> (string)

Part of the key:value pair that defines a tag. You can use a tag key to describe a category of information, such as "customer." Tag keys are case-sensitive.

Value -> (string)

Part of the key:value pair that defines a tag. You can use a tag value to describe a specific value within a category, such as "companyA" or "companyB." Tag values are case-sensitive.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "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.

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 container

The following create-container example creates a new, empty container.

aws mediastore create-container --container-name ExampleContainer

Output:

{
    "Container": {
        "AccessLoggingEnabled": false,
        "CreationTime": 1563557265,
        "Name": "ExampleContainer",
        "Status": "CREATING",
        "ARN": "arn:aws:mediastore:us-west-2:111122223333:container/ExampleContainer"
    }
}

For more information, see Creating a Container in the AWS Elemental MediaStore User Guide.

Output

Container -> (structure)

ContainerARN: The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the newly created container. The ARN has the following format: arn:aws:<region>:<account that owns this container>:container/<name of container>. For example: arn:aws:mediastore:us-west-2:111122223333:container/movies

ContainerName: The container name as specified in the request.

CreationTime: Unix time stamp.

Status: The status of container creation or deletion. The status is one of the following: CREATING , ACTIVE , or DELETING . While the service is creating the container, the status is CREATING . When an endpoint is available, the status changes to ACTIVE .

The return value does not include the container's endpoint. To make downstream requests, you must obtain this value by using DescribeContainer or ListContainers .

Endpoint -> (string)

The DNS endpoint of the container. Use the endpoint to identify the specific container when sending requests to the data plane. The service assigns this value when the container is created. Once the value has been assigned, it does not change.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

Unix timestamp.

ARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the container. The ARN has the following format:

arn:aws:<region>:<account that owns this container>:container/<name of container>

For example: arn:aws:mediastore:us-west-2:111122223333:container/movies

Name -> (string)

The name of the container.

Status -> (string)

The status of container creation or deletion. The status is one of the following: CREATING , ACTIVE , or DELETING . While the service is creating the container, the status is CREATING . When the endpoint is available, the status changes to ACTIVE .

AccessLoggingEnabled -> (boolean)

The state of access logging on the container. This value is false by default, indicating that AWS Elemental MediaStore does not send access logs to Amazon CloudWatch Logs. When you enable access logging on the container, MediaStore changes this value to true , indicating that the service delivers access logs for objects stored in that container to CloudWatch Logs.
