aws directconnect start-bgp-failover-test

Starts the virtual interface failover test that verifies your configuration meets your resiliency requirements by placing the BGP peering session in the DOWN state. You can then send traffic to verify that there are no outages. You can run the test on public, private, transit, and hosted virtual interfaces. You can use ListVirtualInterfaceTestHistory to view the virtual interface test history. If you need to stop the test before the test interval completes, use StopBgpFailoverTest


--virtual-interface-id <string>The ID of the virtual interface you want to test
--bgp-peers <list>The BGP peers to place in the DOWN state
--test-duration-in-minutes <integer>The time in minutes that the virtual interface failover test will last. Maximum value: 180 minutes (3 hours). Default: 180 minutes (3 hours)
--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
