Request Syntax

response = client.create_monitor(
            'Key': 'string',
            'Value': 'string'
  • MonitorName (string) –


    The name of the monitor resource.

  • ResourceArn (string) –


    The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the predictor to monitor.

  • Tags (list) –

    A list of tags to apply to the monitor resource.

    • (dict) –

      The optional metadata that you apply to a resource to help you categorize and organize them. Each tag consists of a key and an optional value, both of which you define.

      The following basic restrictions apply to tags:

      • Maximum number of tags per resource - 50.

      • For each resource, each tag key must be unique, and each tag key can have only one value.

      • Maximum key length - 128 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • Maximum value length - 256 Unicode characters in UTF-8.

      • If your tagging schema is used across multiple services and resources, remember that other services may have restrictions on allowed characters. Generally allowed characters are: letters, numbers, and spaces representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : / @.

      • Tag keys and values are case sensitive.

      • Do not use aws:, AWS:, or any upper or lowercase combination of such as a prefix for keys as it is reserved for Amazon Web Services use. You cannot edit or delete tag keys with this prefix. Values can have this prefix. If a tag value has aws as its prefix but the key does not, then Forecast considers it to be a user tag and will count against the limit of 50 tags. Tags with only the key prefix of aws do not count against your tags per resource limit.

      • Key (string) – [REQUIRED]

        One part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

      • Value (string) – [REQUIRED]

        The optional part of a key-value pair that makes up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).
