--billing-period-range (structure)

A time range for which the custom line item is effective.

The inclusive start billing period that defines a billing period range where a custom line is applied.

ExclusiveEndBillingPeriod -> (string)

The inclusive end billing period that defines a billing period range where a custom line is applied.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "InclusiveStartBillingPeriod": "string",
  "ExclusiveEndBillingPeriod": "string"

--tags (map)

A map that contains tag keys and tag values that are attached to a custom line item.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

JSON Syntax:

{"string": "string"

--charge-details (structure)

A CustomLineItemChargeDetails that describes the charge details for a custom line item.

Flat -> (structure)

A CustomLineItemFlatChargeDetails that describes the charge details of a flat custom line item.

ChargeValue -> (double)

The custom line item’s fixed charge value in USD.

Percentage -> (structure)

A CustomLineItemPercentageChargeDetails that describes the charge details of a percentage custom line item.

PercentageValue -> (double)

The custom line item’s percentage value. This will be multiplied against the combined value of its associated resources to determine its charge value.

AssociatedValues -> (list)

A list of resource ARNs to associate to the percentage custom line item.


Type -> (string)

The type of the custom line item that indicates whether the charge is a fee or credit.

LineItemFilters -> (list)

A representation of the line item filter.


A representation of the line item filter for your custom line item. You can use line item filters to include or exclude specific resource values from the billing group’s total cost. For example, if you create a custom line item and you want to filter out a value, such as Savings Plan discounts, you can update LineItemFilter to exclude it.

Attribute -> (string)

The attribute of the line item filter. This specifies what attribute that you can filter on.

MatchOption -> (string)

The match criteria of the line item filter. This parameter specifies whether not to include the resource value from the billing group total cost.

Values -> (list)

The values of the line item filter. This specifies the values to filter on. Currently, you can only exclude Savings Plan discounts.

--account-id (string)

The Amazon Web Services account in which this custom line item will be applied to.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.


Arn -> (string)
