[ aws . customer-profiles ]



Tests the auto-merging settings of your Identity Resolution Job without merging your data. It randomly selects a sample of matching groups from the existing matching results, and applies the automerging settings that you provided. You can then view the number of profiles in the sample, the number of matches, and the number of profiles identified to be merged. This enables you to evaluate the accuracy of the attributes in your matching list.

You can’t view which profiles are matched and would be merged.


We strongly recommend you use this API to do a dry run of the automerging process before running the Identity Resolution Job. Include at least two matching attributes. If your matching list includes too few attributes (such as only FirstName or only LastName ), there may be a large number of matches. This increases the chances of erroneous merges.

--domain-name (string)

The unique name of the domain.

--consolidation (structure)

A list of matching attributes that represent matching criteria.

MatchingAttributesList -> (list)

A list of matching criteria.



Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "MatchingAttributesList": [
    ["string", ...]

--conflict-resolution (structure)

How the auto-merging process should resolve conflicts between different profiles.

ConflictResolvingModel -> (string)

How the auto-merging process should resolve conflicts between different profiles.

  • RECENCY : Uses the data that was most recently updated.
  • SOURCE : Uses the data from a specific source. For example, if a company has been aquired or two departments have merged, data from the specified source is used. If two duplicate profiles are from the same source, then RECENCY is used again.

SourceName -> (string)

The ObjectType name that is used to resolve profile merging conflicts when choosing SOURCE as the ConflictResolvingModel .

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "ConflictResolvingModel": "RECENCY"|"SOURCE",
  "SourceName": "string"

--min-allowed-confidence-score-for-merging (double)

Minimum confidence score required for profiles within a matching group to be merged during the auto-merge process.

--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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.


DomainName -> (string)

The unique name of the domain.

NumberOfMatchesInSample -> (long)

The number of match groups in the domain that have been reviewed in this preview dry run.

NumberOfProfilesInSample -> (long)

The number of profiles found in this preview dry run.

NumberOfProfilesWillBeMerged -> (long)

The number of profiles that would be merged if this wasn’t a preview dry run.
