aws lightsail start-instance

Starts a specific Amazon Lightsail instance from a stopped state. To restart an instance, use the reboot instance operation. When you start a stopped instance, Lightsail assigns a new public IP address to the instance. To use the same IP address after stopping and starting an instance, create a static IP address and attach it to the instance. For more information, see the Lightsail Dev Guide. The start instance operation supports tag-based access control via resource tags applied to the resource identified by instance name. For more information, see the Lightsail Dev Guide


--instance-name <string>The name of the instance (a virtual private server) to start
--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
