See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


--log-bucket <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--log-bucket (string)

The Amazon S3 bucket that contains the logs that you want to share.

--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.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To authorize the DRT to access an Amazon S3 bucket

The following associate-drt-log-bucket example creates an association between the DRT and the specified S3 bucket. This permits the DRT to access the bucket on behalf of the account.:

aws shield associate-drt-log-bucket \
    --log-bucket flow-logs-for-website-lb

This command produces no output.
