--cluster-name (string)

The snapshot is created from this cluster.

--snapshot-name (string)

A name for the snapshot being created.

--kms-key-id (string)

The ID of the KMS key used to encrypt the snapshot.

--tags (list)

A list of tags to be added to this resource. A tag is a key-value pair. A tag key must be accompanied by a tag value, although null is accepted.


A tag that can be added to an MemoryDB resource. Tags are composed of a Key/Value pair. You can use tags to categorize and track all your MemoryDB resources. When you add or remove tags on clusters, those actions will be replicated to all nodes in the cluster. A tag with a null Value is permitted. For more information, see Tagging your MemoryDB resources

Key -> (string)

The key for the tag. May not be null.

Value -> (string)

The tag’s value. May be null.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Key": "string",
    "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.
