--auto-scaling-parameters (object)

A Parameters to configure AutoScaling

targetedValueForMetric -> (integer)

The target value of the metric a user expect to maintain for the cluster

maxWorkersForDatabase -> (integer)

Maximum number of worker nodes as per this metrics can be scaled up to.

maxWorkersPerBatch -> (integer)

Maximum number of worker nodes as per this metrics can be scaled up to in one batch.

minWorkersForDatabase -> (integer)

Minimum number of worker nodes as per this metrics can be scaled down to.

evaluationPeriod -> (integer)

Period of metrics(in seconds) needs to be considered.

minimumBlockCacheGb -> (integer)

The amount of block cache, in Gigabytes, which the database should have.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "targetedValueForMetric": integer,

--custom-user-tags (array)

Optional tags to apply to launched infrastructure resources

Shorthand Syntax:

key=string,value=string ... (separate items with spaces)

JSON Syntax:

    "key": "string",
    "value": "string"

--disable-multi-az | --no-disable-multi-az (boolean)

--attached-storage-for-workers (object)

Attached storage for the worker nodes for AWS, Azure, and GCP cloud providers.

volumeCount -> (integer)

The number of Volumes. Default is 4. Valid Range: Minimum value of 1, maximum value 8.

volumeSize -> (integer)

The target size of the volume, in GiB. Default is 2048.

volumeType -> (string)

Volume Type. HDD - Hard disk drives (HDD) volume type. Default is HDD. SSD - Solid disk drives (SSD) volume type. LOCAL_SSD - Local SSD volume type.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

--num-edge-nodes (integer)

Number of edge nodes to be created for the database. A positive, non-zero number is required. The default value is 0.

--image (object)

Details of an Image.

id -> (string)

Image ID for the database.

catalog -> (string)

Catalog name for the image.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "id": "string",

--enable-region-canary | --no-enable-region-canary (boolean)

To enable the region canary for the database.

--scale-type (string)

Scale type. MICRO - Create a 2-node cluster (1 gateway and 1 worker) with high availability disabled. LIGHT - Create a multi-node cluster with a light master and gateway instance type. HEAVY - Create a multi-node cluster with heavy master and gateway instance type.

Possible values:




--storage-type (string)

Storage type for clusters. CLOUD_WITH_EPHEMERAL - Cloud with ephemeral storage. CLOUD - Cloud storage without ephemeral storage. HDFS - HDFS storage.

Possible values:



  • HDFS

--recipes (array)

Shorthand Syntax:

encryptionKey=string,instanceGroup=string ... (separate items with spaces)

JSON Syntax:

    "encryptionKey": "string",

--cli-input-json (string)

Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (boolean)

Prints a sample input JSON to standard output. Note the specified operation is not run if this argument is specified. The sample input can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json.
