[ aws . clouddirectory ]



Creates a Directory by copying the published schema into the directory. A directory cannot be created without a schema.

You can also quickly create a directory using a managed schema, called the QuickStartSchema . For more information, see Managed Schema in the Amazon Cloud Directory Developer Guide .

--name <value>
--schema-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--name (string)

The name of the Directory . Should be unique per account, per region.

--schema-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the published schema that will be copied into the data Directory . For more information, see arns .

--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.
