--resource-tags (list)

An optional list of tags to associate with the specified ` AnomalySubscription https://docs.aws.amazon.com/aws-cost-management/latest/APIReference/API_AnomalySubscription.html`__ . You can use resource tags to control access to your subscription using IAM policies.

Each tag consists of a key and a value, and each key must be unique for the resource. The following restrictions apply to resource tags:

  • Although the maximum number of array members is 200, you can assign a maximum of 50 user-tags to one resource. The remaining are reserved for Amazon Web Services use

  • The maximum length of a key is 128 characters

  • The maximum length of a value is 256 characters

  • Keys and values can only contain alphanumeric characters, spaces, and any of the following: _.:/=+@-

  • Keys and values are case sensitive

  • Keys and values are trimmed for any leading or trailing whitespaces

  • Don’t use aws: as a prefix for your keys. This prefix is reserved for Amazon Web Services use

Key -> (string)

The key that’s associated with the tag.

Value -> (string)

The value that’s associated with the tag.

--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.


SubscriptionArn -> (string)

The unique identifier of your newly created cost anomaly subscription.
