[ aws . clouddirectory ]



Creates a new schema in a development state. A schema can exist in three phases:

  • Development: This is a mutable phase of the schema. All new schemas are in the development phase. Once the schema is finalized, it can be published.

  • Published: Published schemas are immutable and have a version associated with them.

  • Applied: Applied schemas are mutable in a way that allows you to add new schema facets. You can also add new, nonrequired attributes to existing schema facets. You can apply only published schemas to directories.

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


--name (string)

The name that is associated with the schema. This is unique to each account and in each region.

--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.
