Options

--group-name (string)

The case-sensitive name of the new group. Default is a reserved name and names must be unique.

--filter-expression (string)

The filter expression defining criteria by which to group traces.

--insights-configuration (structure)

The structure containing configurations related to insights.

  • The InsightsEnabled boolean can be set to true to enable insights for the new group or false to disable insights for the new group.

  • The NotifcationsEnabled boolean can be set to true to enable insights notifications for the new group. Notifications may only be enabled on a group with InsightsEnabled set to true.

InsightsEnabled -> (boolean)

Set the InsightsEnabled value to true to enable insights or false to disable insights.

NotificationsEnabled -> (boolean)

Set the NotificationsEnabled value to true to enable insights notifications. Notifications can only be enabled on a group with InsightsEnabled set to true.

Shorthand Syntax:

InsightsEnabled=boolean,NotificationsEnabled=boolean

JSON Syntax:

{
  "InsightsEnabled": true|false,
  "NotificationsEnabled": true|false
}

--tags (list)

A map that contains one or more tag keys and tag values to attach to an X-Ray group. For more information about ways to use tags, see Tagging AWS resources in the AWS General Reference .

The following restrictions apply to tags:

  • Maximum number of user-applied tags per resource: 50

  • Maximum tag key length: 128 Unicode characters

  • Maximum tag value length: 256 Unicode characters

  • Valid values for key and value: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, space, and the following characters: _ . : / = + - and @

  • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

  • Don’t use aws: as a prefix for keys; it’s reserved for AWS use.

(structure)

A map that contains tag keys and tag values to attach to an AWS X-Ray group or sampling rule. For more information about ways to use tags, see Tagging AWS resources in the AWS General Reference .

The following restrictions apply to tags:

  • Maximum number of user-applied tags per resource: 50

  • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

  • Don’t use aws: as a prefix for keys; it’s reserved for AWS use. You cannot edit or delete system tags.

Key -> (string)

A tag key, such as Stage or Name . A tag key cannot be empty. The key can be a maximum of 128 characters, and can contain only Unicode letters, numbers, or separators, or the following special characters: + - = . _ : /

Value -> (string)

An optional tag value, such as Production or test-only . The value can be a maximum of 255 characters, and contain only Unicode letters, numbers, or separators, or the following special characters: + - = . _ : /

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "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.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create a group

The following create-group example creates a group resource named AdminGroup. The group gets a filter expression that defines the criteria of the group as a segment related to a specific service causing a fault or an error.

aws xray create-group \
   --group-name "AdminGroup" \
   --filter-expression "service(\"mydomain.com\") {fault OR error}"

Output:

{
    "GroupName": "AdminGroup",
    "GroupARN": "arn:aws:xray:us-west-2:123456789012:group/AdminGroup/123456789",
    "FilterExpression": "service(\"mydomain.com\") {fault OR error}"
}

Output

Group -> (structure)

The group that was created. Contains the name of the group that was created, the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the group that was generated based on the group name, the filter expression, and the insight configuration that was assigned to the group.

GroupName -> (string)

The unique case-sensitive name of the group.

GroupARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the group generated based on the GroupName.

FilterExpression -> (string)

The filter expression defining the parameters to include traces.

InsightsConfiguration -> (structure)

The structure containing configurations related to insights.

  • The InsightsEnabled boolean can be set to true to enable insights for the group or false to disable insights for the group.

  • The NotifcationsEnabled boolean can be set to true to enable insights notifications through Amazon EventBridge for the group.

InsightsEnabled -> (boolean)

Set the InsightsEnabled value to true to enable insights or false to disable insights.

NotificationsEnabled -> (boolean)

Set the NotificationsEnabled value to true to enable insights notifications. Notifications can only be enabled on a group with InsightsEnabled set to true.
