[ aws . ssm-incidents ]



A replication set replicates and encrypts your data to the provided Regions with the provided KMS key.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


[--client-token <value>]
--regions <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--client-token (string)

A token ensuring that the operation is called only once with the specified details.

--regions (map)

The Regions that Incident Manager replicates your data to. You can have up to three Regions in your replication set.

key -> (string)

value -> (structure)

The mapping between a Amazon Web Services Region and the key that’s used to encrypt the data.

sseKmsKeyId -> (string)

The KMS key used to encrypt the data in your replication set.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

{"string": {
      "sseKmsKeyId": "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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.


To create the replication set

The following create-replication-set example creates the replication set Incident Manager uses to replicate and encrypt data in your Amazon Web Services account. This example uses the us-east-1 and us-east-2 Regions while creating the replication set.

aws ssm-incidents create-replication-set \
    --regions '{"us-east-1": {"sseKmsKeyId": "arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"}, "us-east-2": {"sseKmsKeyId": "arn:aws:kms:us-east-1:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab"}}'


    "replicationSetArns": [

arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the replication set.
