--directory-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that is associated with the Directory where the object resides. For more information, see arns .

--schema-facet (structure)

Identifiers for the facet that you are adding to the object. See SchemaFacet for details.

SchemaArn -> (string)

The ARN of the schema that contains the facet with no minor component. See arns and In-Place Schema Upgrade for a description of when to provide minor versions.

FacetName -> (string)

The name of the facet.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "SchemaArn": "string",
  "FacetName": "string"

--object-attribute-list (list)

Attributes on the facet that you are adding to the object.


The combination of an attribute key and an attribute value.

Key -> (structure)

The key of the attribute.

SchemaArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the schema that contains the facet and attribute.

FacetName -> (string)

The name of the facet that the attribute exists within.

Name -> (string)

The name of the attribute.

Value -> (structure)

The value of the attribute.

StringValue -> (string)

A string data value.

BinaryValue -> (blob)

A binary data value.

BooleanValue -> (boolean)

A Boolean data value.

NumberValue -> (string)

A number data value.

DatetimeValue -> (timestamp)

A date and time value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key={SchemaArn=string,FacetName=string,Name=string},Value={StringValue=string,BinaryValue=blob,BooleanValue=boolean,NumberValue=string,DatetimeValue=timestamp} ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": {
      "SchemaArn": "string",
      "FacetName": "string",
      "Name": "string"
    "Value": {
      "StringValue": "string",
      "BinaryValue": blob,
      "BooleanValue": true|false,
      "NumberValue": "string",
      "DatetimeValue": timestamp

--object-reference (structure)

A reference to the object you are adding the specified facet to.

Selector -> (string)

A path selector supports easy selection of an object by the parent/child links leading to it from the directory root. Use the link names from each parent/child link to construct the path. Path selectors start with a slash (/) and link names are separated by slashes. For more information about paths, see Access Objects . You can identify an object in one of the following ways:

  • $ObjectIdentifier - An object identifier is an opaque string provided by Amazon Cloud Directory. When creating objects, the system will provide you with the identifier of the created object. An object’s identifier is immutable and no two objects will ever share the same object identifier

  • /some/path - Identifies the object based on path

  • #SomeBatchReference - Identifies the object in a batch call

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Selector": "string"

--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.
