[--group-name <value>]
[--group-arn <value>]
[--filter-expression <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--group-name (string)

The case-sensitive name of the group.

--group-arn (string)

The ARN that was generated upon creation.

--filter-expression (string)

The updated filter expression defining criteria by which to group traces.

--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 group

The following update-group example updates the criteria by which to accept traces into the group named AdminGroup. You can specify the desired group by using either the group name or group ARN.

aws xray update-group \
    --group-name "AdminGroup" \
    --group-arn "arn:aws:xray:us-west-2:123456789012:group/AdminGroup/123456789" \
    --filter-expression "service(\"mydomain.com\") {fault}"


    "GroupName": "AdminGroup",
    "GroupARN": "arn:aws:xray:us-east-2:123456789012:group/AdminGroup/123456789",
    "FilterExpression": "service(\"mydomain.com\") {fault}"
