--thing-name (string)

The thing whose group memberships will be updated.

--thing-groups-to-add (list)

The groups to which the thing will be added.



"string" "string" ...

--thing-groups-to-remove (list)

The groups from which the thing will be removed.



"string" "string" ...

--override-dynamic-groups | --no-override-dynamic-groups (boolean)

Override dynamic thing groups with static thing groups when 10-group limit is reached. If a thing belongs to 10 thing groups, and one or more of those groups are dynamic thing groups, adding a thing to a static group removes the thing from the last dynamic 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 change the groups to which a thing belongs

The following update-thing-groups-for-thing example removes the thing named MyLightBulb from the group named DeadBulbs and adds it to the group named replaceableItems at the same time.

aws iot update-thing-groups-for-thing \
    --thing-name MyLightBulb \
    --thing-groups-to-add "replaceableItems" \
    --thing-groups-to-remove "DeadBulbs"

This command produces no output.
