Creates a delegation set (a group of four name servers) that can be reused by multiple hosted zones that were created by the same Amazon Web Services account.
You can also create a reusable delegation set that uses the four name servers that are associated with an existing hosted zone. Specify the hosted zone ID in the
You can’t associate a reusable delegation set with a private hosted zone.
For information about using a reusable delegation set to configure white label name servers, see Configuring White Label Name Servers .
The process for migrating existing hosted zones to use a reusable delegation set is comparable to the process for configuring white label name servers. You need to perform the following steps:
Create a reusable delegation set.
Recreate hosted zones, and reduce the TTL to 60 seconds or less.
Recreate resource record sets in the new hosted zones.
Change the registrar’s name servers to use the name servers for the new hosted zones.
Monitor traffic for the website or application.
Change TTLs back to their original values.
If you want to migrate existing hosted zones to use a reusable delegation set, the existing hosted zones can’t use any of the name servers that are assigned to the reusable delegation set. If one or more hosted zones do use one or more name servers that are assigned to the reusable delegation set, you can do one of the following:
For small numbers of hosted zones—up to a few hundred—it’s relatively easy to create reusable delegation sets until you get one that has four name servers that don’t overlap with any of the name servers in your hosted zones.
For larger numbers of hosted zones, the easiest solution is to use more than one reusable delegation set.
For larger numbers of hosted zones, you can also migrate hosted zones that have overlapping name servers to hosted zones that don’t have overlapping name servers, then migrate the hosted zones again to use the reusable delegation set.

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.

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.

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
