Creates a link between a source account and a sink that you have created in a monitoring account.
Before you create a link, you must create a sink in the monitoring account and create a sink policy in that account. The sink policy must permit the source account to link to it. You can grant permission to source accounts by granting permission to an entire organization or to individual accounts.
For more information, see CreateSink and PutSinkPolicy .
Each monitoring account can be linked to as many as 100,000 source accounts.
Each source account can be linked to as many as five monitoring accounts.

Specify a friendly human-readable name to use to identify this source account when you are viewing data from it in the monitoring account.
You can use a custom label or use the following variables:
$AccountName is the name of the account
$AccountEmail is the globally unique email address of the account
$AccountEmailNoDomain is the email address of the account without the domain name
An array of strings that define which types of data that the source account shares with the monitoring account.
"string" "string" ...
Where valid values are:
The ARN of the sink to use to create this link. You can use ListSinks to find the ARNs of sinks.
For more information about sinks, see CreateSink .
Assigns one or more tags (key-value pairs) to the link.
Tags can help you organize and categorize your resources. You can also use them to scope user permissions by granting a user permission to access or change only resources with certain tag values.
For more information about using tags to control access, see Controlling access to Amazon Web Services resources using tags .

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
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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.
Turn on debug logging.
Override command’s default URL with the given URL.
By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.
Disable automatic pagination.
The formatting style for command output.
A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.
Use a specific profile from your credential file.
The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.
Display the version of this tool.
Turn on/off color output.
Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.
The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.
The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.
The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob
fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the
cli-binary-format setting. When using
file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.
Arn -> (string)
The ARN of the link that is newly created.
Id -> (string)
The random ID string that Amazon Web Services generated as part of the link ARN.

LabelTemplate -> (string)
The exact label template that you specified, with the variables not resolved.

The resource types supported by this link.
