--job-id <value>
[--reason-code <value>]
[--comment <value>]
[--force | --no-force]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--job-id (string)

The unique identifier you assigned to this job when it was created.

--reason-code (string)

(Optional)A reason code string that explains why the job was canceled.

--comment (string)

An optional comment string describing why the job was canceled.

--force | --no-force (boolean)

(Optional) If true job executions with status “IN_PROGRESS” and “QUEUED” are canceled, otherwise only job executions with status “QUEUED” are canceled. The default is false .

Canceling a job which is “IN_PROGRESS”, will cause a device which is executing the job to be unable to update the job execution status. Use caution and ensure that each device executing a job which is canceled is able to recover to a valid state.

--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.
