            'Value': 'string'

  • DestinationName (string) –


    The name of the Sidewalk destination that describes the IoT rule to route messages from the devices in the import task that are onboarded to AWS IoT Wireless.

  • ClientRequestToken (string) –

    Each resource must have a unique client request token. The client token is used to implement idempotency. It ensures that the request completes no more than one time. If you retry a request with the same token and the same parameters, the request will complete successfully. However, if you try to create a new resource using the same token but different parameters, an HTTP 409 conflict occurs. If you omit this value, AWS SDKs will automatically generate a unique client request. For more information about idempotency, see Ensuring idempotency in Amazon EC2 API requests.

    This field is autopopulated if not provided.
