             - amazon

By specifying --add-new-version, a new Custom::AMI will be added to the template with a new name. A suffix v<version> is appended to create the new resource. The highest reference to the Custom::AMI resource is replaced. It will change:

      CustomAMI:
         Type: Custom::AMI
         Properties:
           Filters:

container-image - Updates the Docker image of ECS Container Definitions.

Updates the schedule expression of an AWS::Events::Rules resources to reflect the scheduled time in UTC. The required cron rule is taken from the description. It will update the following resource definition from:

DailyTaskSchedule:
  Type: AWS::Events::Rule
  Properties:
    Description: run daily - cron(30 01 * * ? *)
    Name: run daily
    ScheduleExpression: cron(30 01 * * ? *)
    State: ENABLED

to:

DailyTaskSchedule:
  Type: AWS::Events::Rule
  Properties:
    Description: run daily - cron(30 01 * * ? *)
    Name: run daily
    ScheduleExpression: cron(30 23 * * ? *)
    State: ENABLED

with --timezone Europe/Amsterdam and --date 2018-08-01. If the updater is run with --date 2018-12-01, it will change it to:

DailyTaskSchedule:
  Type: AWS::Events::Rule
  Properties:
    Description: run daily - cron(30 01 * * ? *)
    Name: run daily
    ScheduleExpression: cron(30 00 * * ? *)
    State: ENABLED

rest-api-body - update the body of an AWS::ApiGateway::RestApi

Updates the body of a REST API Resource, with an standard Open API specification merged with AWS API Gateway extensions.

If you specify --add-new-version, it will create a new version of the resource and update all references to it. This will enforce the deployment of the new api.

If you want to keep the previous definition, specify --keep to a value of 2 or higher. This might be handy if you have old clients still accessing the old version of the API.

If no changes are detected, no changes are made. Please make sure that all dictionary keys in th specifications are strings, not integers (especially the case with responses). When updating json CFN templates, the compare algorithm does not work properly.

Options:
  --resource TEXT                AWS::ApiGateway::RestApi body to update [required]
  --open-api-specification PATH  defining the interface  [required]
  --api-gateway-extensions PATH  to add the the specification  [required]
  --add-new-version              of the RestAPI resource and replace all references
  --keep INTEGER                 number of versions to keep, if --add-new-version is specified

lambda-inline-code - updates the inline code of an AWS::Lambda::Function resource.

    ELBListenerRuleProvider:
      Type: AWS::Lambda::Function
      Function: cfn-listener-rule-provider

into:

    ELBListenerRuleProvider:
      Type: AWS::Lambda::Function
      Properties:
        Code:
          ZipFile:
            import boto3
            import cfnresponse
            ELB = boto3.client('elbv2')
            ...
        Function: cfn-listener-rule-provider

config-rule-inline-code - updates the inline code of an AWS::Config::ConfigRule resource.

                  ...
              }
            ...

state-machine-definition - updates the definition string of an AWS::StepFunctions::StateMachine

Updates the definition of an AWS::StepFunctions::StateMachine.

The definition is read from the file specified by --definition. By default, the content will be passed into the Fn::Sub function to allow references to parameters and resource attributes in the template.

If you do not want substitution for your definition, specify --no-fn-sub.

Options:
  --resource TEXT         AWS::StepFunctions::StateMachine definition to
                          update  [required]
  --definition PATH       of the state machine  [required]
  --fn-sub / --no-fn-sub  for the definition
  --help                  Show this message and exit.

For an example, check out ./samples/state-machine-definition

oidc-provider-thumbprints - updates the thumbprints list of an AWS::IAM::OIDCProvider.

By default, it updates the thumbprints of all OIDCProviders specified templates. Optionally, you can specify a specific OIDC provider.
