[ aws . logs ]



Creates or updates a query definition for CloudWatch Logs Insights. For more information, see Analyzing Log Data with CloudWatch Logs Insights .

To update a query definition, specify its queryDefinitionId in your request. The values of name , queryString , and logGroupNames are changed to the values that you specify in your update operation. No current values are retained from the current query definition. For example, if you update a current query definition that includes log groups, and you don’t specify the logGroupNames parameter in your update operation, the query definition changes to contain no log groups.

You must have the logs:PutQueryDefinition permission to be able to perform this operation.

--name (string)

A name for the query definition. If you are saving a lot of query definitions, we recommend that you name them so that you can easily find the ones you want by using the first part of the name as a filter in the queryDefinitionNamePrefix parameter of DescribeQueryDefinitions .

--query-definition-id (string)

If you are updating a query definition, use this parameter to specify the ID of the query definition that you want to update. You can use DescribeQueryDefinitions to retrieve the IDs of your saved query definitions.

If you are creating a query definition, do not specify this parameter. CloudWatch generates a unique ID for the new query definition and include it in the response to this operation.

--log-group-names (list)

Use this parameter to include specific log groups as part of your query definition.

If you are updating a query definition and you omit this parameter, then the updated definition will contain no log groups.

--query-string (string)

The query string to use for this definition. For more information, see CloudWatch Logs Insights Query Syntax .

--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.


queryDefinitionId -> (string)

The ID of the query definition.
