--id (string)

The ID of the wireless device to receive the data.

--transmit-mode (integer)

The transmit mode to use to send data to the wireless device. Can be: 0 for UM (unacknowledge mode) or 1 for AM (acknowledge mode).

--payload-data (string)

The binary to be sent to the end device, encoded in base64.

--wireless-metadata (structure)

Metadata about the message request.

LoRaWAN -> (structure)

LoRaWAN device info.

FPort -> (integer)

The Fport value.

Sidewalk -> (structure)

The Sidewalk account credentials.

Seq -> (integer)

The sequence number.

MessageType -> (string)

Sidewalk device message type. Default value is CUSTOM_COMMAND_ID_NOTIFY .

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "LoRaWAN": {
    "FPort": integer
  "Sidewalk": {
    "Seq": integer,

--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.


To send data to the wireless device

The following send-data-to-wireless-device example sends a decrypted application data frame to the wireless device.

aws iotwireless send-data-to-wireless-device \
    --id "11aa5eae-2f56-4b8e-a023-b28d98494e49" \
    --transmit-mode "1" \
    --payload-data "SGVsbG8gVG8gRGV2c2lt" \
    --wireless-metadata LoRaWAN={FPort=1}


    MessageId: "6011dd36-0043d6eb-0072-0008"
