See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


[--amzn-client-token <value>]
--connector-definition-id <value>
[--connectors <value>]
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--amzn-client-token (string) A client token used to correlate requests and responses.

--connector-definition-id (string) The ID of the connector definition.

--connectors (list) A list of references to connectors in this version, with their corresponding configuration settings.(structure)

Information about a connector. Connectors run on the Greengrass core and contain built-in integration with local infrastructure, device protocols, AWS, and other cloud services.

ConnectorArn -> (string)

The ARN of the connector.

Id -> (string)

A descriptive or arbitrary ID for the connector. This value must be unique within the connector definition version. Max length is 128 characters with pattern [a-zA-Z0-9:_-]+.

Parameters -> (map)

The parameters or configuration that the connector uses.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

ConnectorArn=string,Id=string,Parameters={KeyName1=string,KeyName2=string} ...

JSON Syntax:

    "ConnectorArn": "string",
    "Id": "string",
    "Parameters": {"string": "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.

To create a connector definition version

The following create-connector-definition-version example creates a connector definition version and associates it with the specified connector definition. All connectors in a version define values for their parameters.

aws greengrass create-connector-definition-version \
    --connector-definition-id "55d0052b-0d7d-44d6-b56f-21867215e118" \
    --connectors "[{\"Id\": \"MyTwilioNotificationsConnector\", \"ConnectorArn\": \"arn:aws:greengrass:us-west-2::/connectors/TwilioNotifications/versions/2\", \"Parameters\": {\"TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID\": \"AC1a8d4204890840d7fc482aab38090d57\", \"TwilioAuthTokenSecretArn\": \"arn:aws:secretsmanager:us-west-2:123456789012:secret:greengrass-TwilioAuthToken-ntSlp6\", \"TwilioAuthTokenSecretArn-ResourceId\": \"TwilioAuthToken\", \"DefaultFromPhoneNumber\": \"4254492999\"}}]"
