--ssh-public-key (string)

The user’s SSH public key.

--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 update a user’s profile

The following example updates the development user’s profile to use a specified SSH public key. The user’s AWS credentials are represented by the development profile in the credentials file (~\.aws\credentials), and the key is in a .pem file in the working directory.

aws opsworks --region us-east-1 --profile development update-my-user-profile --ssh-public-key file://development_key.pem

Output: None.
