[ aws . iotsitewise ]



Creates a portal, which can contain projects and dashboards. Before you can create a portal, you must configure AWS Single Sign-On in the current Region. AWS IoT SiteWise Monitor uses AWS SSO to manage user permissions. For more information, see Enabling AWS SSO in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .


Before you can sign in to a new portal, you must add at least one AWS SSO user or group to that portal. For more information, see Adding or Removing Portal Administrators in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

--role-arn (string)

The ARN of a service role that allows the portal’s users to access your AWS IoT SiteWise resources on your behalf. For more information, see Using service roles for AWS IoT SiteWise Monitor in the AWS IoT SiteWise User Guide .

--tags (map)

--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.

aws iotsitewise create-portal \
    --portal-name WindFarmPortal \
    --portal-description "A portal that contains wind farm projects for Example Corp." \
    --portal-contact-email support@example.com \
    --role-arn arn:aws:iam::123456789012:role/service-role/MySiteWiseMonitorServiceRole


    "portalId": "a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-aaaaaEXAMPLE",
    "portalArn": "arn:aws:iotsitewise:us-west-2:123456789012:portal/a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-aaaaaEXAMPLE",
    "portalStartUrl": "https://a1b2c3d4-5678-90ab-cdef-aaaaaEXAMPLE.app.iotsitewise.aws",
    "portalStatus": {
        "state": "CREATING"
