[ 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.

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 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": [

For more information, see Using the Incident Manager replication set in the Incident Manager User Guide.


arn -> (string)

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