PowerShell
Tools for PowerShell

Example 1: Creates or updates the dashboard named 'Dashboard1' to include two metric widgets side by side.

$dashBody = @" { "widgets":[ { "type":"metric", "x":0, "y":0, "width":12, "height":6, "properties":{ "metrics":[ [ "AWS/EC2", "CPUUtilization", "InstanceId", "i-012345" ] ], "period":300, "stat":"Average", "region":"us-east-1", "title":"EC2 Instance CPU" } }, { "type":"metric", "x":12, "y":0, "width":12, "height":6, "properties":{ "metrics":[ [ "AWS/S3", "BucketSizeBytes", "BucketName", "MyBucketName" ] ], "period":86400, "stat":"Maximum", "region":"us-east-1", "title":"MyBucketName bytes" } } ] } "@ Write-CWDashboard -DashboardName Dashboard1 -DashboardBody $dashBody

Example 2: Creates or updates the dashboard, piping the content describing the dashboard into the cmdlet.

$dashBody = @" { ... } "@ $dashBody | Write-CWDashboard -DashboardName Dashboard1
