--tracking-id (string)

The tracking ID for the event. The ID is generated by a call to the CreateEventTracker API.

--user-id (string)

The user associated with the event.

--session-id (string)

The session ID associated with the user’s visit.

--event-list (list)

A list of event data from the session.


Represents user interaction event information sent using the PutEvents API.

eventId -> (string)

An ID associated with the event. If an event ID is not provided, Amazon Personalize generates a unique ID for the event. An event ID is not used as an input to the model. Amazon Personalize uses the event ID to distinquish unique events. Any subsequent events after the first with the same event ID are not used in model training.

eventType -> (string)

The type of event. This property corresponds to the EVENT_TYPE field of the Interactions schema.

properties -> (string)

A string map of event-specific data that you might choose to record. For example, if a user rates a movie on your site, you might send the movie ID and rating, and the number of movie ratings made by the user.

Each item in the map consists of a key-value pair. For example,

{"itemId": "movie1"}

{"itemId": "movie2", "eventValue": "4.5"}

{"itemId": "movie3", "eventValue": "3", "numberOfRatings": "12"}

The keys use camel case names that match the fields in the Interactions schema. The itemId and eventValue keys correspond to the ITEM_ID and EVENT_VALUE fields. In the above example, the eventType might be ‘MovieRating’ with eventValue being the rating. The numberOfRatings would match the ‘NUMBER_OF_RATINGS’ field defined in the Interactions schema.

sentAt -> (timestamp)

The timestamp on the client side when the event occurred.

Shorthand Syntax:

eventId=string,eventType=string,properties=string,sentAt=timestamp ...

JSON Syntax:

    "eventId": "string",
    "eventType": "string",
    "properties": "string",
    "sentAt": timestamp

--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.
