[ aws . lakeformation ]



Registers the resource as managed by the Data Catalog.

To add or update data, Lake Formation needs read/write access to the chosen Amazon S3 path. Choose a role that you know has permission to do this, or choose the AWSServiceRoleForLakeFormationDataAccess service-linked role. When you register the first Amazon S3 path, the service-linked role and a new inline policy are created on your behalf. Lake Formation adds the first path to the inline policy and attaches it to the service-linked role. When you register subsequent paths, Lake Formation adds the path to the existing policy.

The following request registers a new location and gives AWS Lake Formation permission to use the service-linked role to access that location.

ResourceArn = arn:aws:s3:::my-bucket UseServiceLinkedRole = true

If UseServiceLinkedRole is not set to true, you must provide or set the RoleArn :

--resource-arn <value>
[--use-service-linked-role | --no-use-service-linked-role]
[--role-arn <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--resource-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource that you want to register.

--use-service-linked-role | --no-use-service-linked-role (boolean)

Designates an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service-linked role by registering this role with the Data Catalog. A service-linked role is a unique type of IAM role that is linked directly to Lake Formation.

For more information, see Using Service-Linked Roles for Lake Formation .

--role-arn (string)

The identifier for the role that registers the resource.

--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.
