--lens-alias (string)

The alias of the lens.

For Amazon Web Services official lenses, this is either the lens alias, such as serverless , or the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-west-2::lens/serverless .

For custom lenses, this is the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-east-1:123456789012:lens/my-lens .

Each lens is identified by its LensSummary$LensAlias .

--lens-version (string)

The lens version to be retrieved.

--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.
