Synopsis

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

Options

--application-name (string)

The name of the application. This name must be unique with the applicable IAM user or AWS account.

--compute-platform (string)

The destination platform type for the deployment (Lambda , Server , or ECS ).

Possible values:

  • Server

  • Lambda

  • ECS

--tags (list)

The metadata that you apply to CodeDeploy applications to help you organize and categorize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

(structure)

Information about a tag.

Key -> (string)

The tag’s key.

Value -> (string)

The tag’s value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[

    "Value": "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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
