See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--instance-id <value>
--iam-role <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--instance-id (string)

The ID of the managed instance where you want to update the role.

--iam-role (string)

The IAM role you want to assign or change.

--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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To update the IAM role of a managed instance

The following update-managed-instance-role example updates the IAM instance profile of a managed instance.

aws ssm update-managed-instance-role \
    --instance-id "mi-08ab247cdfEXAMPLE" \
    --iam-role "ExampleRole"

This command produces no output.
