[ aws . workmail ]



Performs a test on an availability provider to ensure that access is allowed. For EWS, it verifies the provided credentials can be used to successfully log in. For Lambda, it verifies that the Lambda function can be invoked and that the resource access policy was configured to deny anonymous access. An anonymous invocation is one done without providing either a SourceArn or SourceAccount header.


The request must contain either one provider definition (EwsProvider or LambdaProvider ) or the DomainName parameter. If the DomainName parameter is provided, the configuration stored under the DomainName will be tested.

--organization-id (string)

The WorkMail organization where the availability provider will be tested.

--domain-name (string)

The domain to which the provider applies. If this field is provided, a stored availability provider associated to this domain name will be tested.

--ews-provider (structure)

Describes an EWS based availability provider. This is only used as input to the service.

EwsEndpoint -> (string)

The endpoint of the remote EWS server.

EwsUsername -> (string)

The username used to authenticate the remote EWS server.

EwsPassword -> (string)

The password used to authenticate the remote EWS server.

JSON Syntax:

  "EwsEndpoint": "string",
  "EwsUsername": "string",
  "EwsPassword": "string"

--lambda-provider (structure)

Describes a Lambda based availability provider.

LambdaArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Lambda that acts as the availability provider.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "LambdaArn": "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. 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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

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.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json

  • text

  • table

  • yaml

  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on

  • off

  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

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.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

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.

--cli-binary-format (string)

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 cli-binary-format.

  • base64

  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.


TestPassed -> (boolean)

Boolean indicating whether the test passed or failed.

FailureReason -> (string)

String containing the reason for a failed test if TestPassed is false.
