--subnet-group-name (string)

A name for the subnet group. This value is stored as a lowercase string.

--description (string)

--subnet-ids (list)

A list of VPC subnet IDs for the subnet group.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To create a DAX subnet group

The following create-subnet-group example creates a subnet group with the specified settings.

aws dax create-subnet-group \
    --subnet-group-name daxSubnetGroup \
    --subnet-ids subnet-11111111 subnet-22222222


    "SubnetGroup": {
        "SubnetGroupName": "daxSubnetGroup",
        "VpcId": "vpc-05a1fa8e00c325226",
        "Subnets": [
                "SubnetIdentifier": "subnet-11111111",
                "SubnetAvailabilityZone": "us-west-2b"
                "SubnetIdentifier": "subnet-22222222",
                "SubnetAvailabilityZone": "us-west-2c"
