[ aws . opsworks ]



Assigns one of the stack’s registered Amazon EBS volumes to a specified instance. The volume must first be registered with the stack by calling RegisterVolume . After you register the volume, you must call UpdateVolume to specify a mount point before calling AssignVolume . For more information, see Resource Management .

Required Permissions : To use this action, an IAM user must have a Manage permissions level for the stack, or an attached policy that explicitly grants permissions. For more information on user permissions, see Managing User Permissions .

--volume-id <value>
[--instance-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--volume-id (string)

The volume ID.

--instance-id (string)

The instance ID.

--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 assign a registered volume to an instance

The following example assigns a registered Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) volume to an instance. The volume is identified by its volume ID, which is the GUID that AWS OpsWorks assigns when you register the volume with a stack, not the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) volume ID. Before you run assign-volume, you must first run update-volume to assign a mount point to the volume.

aws opsworks --region us-east-1 assign-volume --instance-id 4d6d1710-ded9-42a1-b08e-b043ad7af1e2 --volume-id 26cf1d32-6876-42fa-bbf1-9cadc0bff938

Output: None.
