--domain (string)

The domain string.

--user-pool-id (string)

The user pool ID.

--custom-domain-config (structure)

The configuration for a custom domain that hosts the sign-up and sign-in webpages for your application.

For more information about the hosted domain and custom domains, see Configuring a User Pool Domain .

CertificateArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an AWS Certificate Manager SSL certificate. You use this certificate for the subdomain of your custom domain.

JSON Syntax:

  "CertificateArn": "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.
