--sms-template-request (structure)

Specifies the content and settings for a message template that can be used in text messages that are sent through the SMS channel.

Body -> (string)

The message body to use in text messages that are based on the message template.

DefaultSubstitutions -> (string)

A JSON object that specifies the default values to use for message variables in the message template. This object is a set of key-value pairs. Each key defines a message variable in the template. The corresponding value defines the default value for that variable. When you create a message that’s based on the template, you can override these defaults with message-specific and address-specific variables and values.

RecommenderId -> (string)

The unique identifier for the recommender model to use for the message template. Amazon Pinpoint uses this value to determine how to retrieve and process data from a recommender model when it sends messages that use the template, if the template contains message variables for recommendation data.

tags -> (map)

A string-to-string map of key-value pairs that defines the tags to associate with the message template. Each tag consists of a required tag key and an associated tag value.

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

TemplateDescription -> (string)

A custom description of the message template.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Body": "string",
  "DefaultSubstitutions": "string",
  "RecommenderId": "string",
  "tags": {"string": "string"
  "TemplateDescription": "string"

--template-name (string)

The name of the message template. A template name must start with an alphanumeric character and can contain a maximum of 128 characters. The characters can be alphanumeric characters, underscores (_), or hyphens (-). Template names are case sensitive.

--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.
