This class represents one of two things:

Arguments in a call to a service

Use the attributes of this class as arguments to methods. You shouldn't make instances of this class. Each attribute should be used as a named argument in the calls that expect this type of object.

As an example, if Att1 is expected to be a Paws::CloudWatchEvents::InputTransformer object:

  $service_obj->Method(Att1 => { InputPathsMap => $value, ..., InputTemplate => $value  });

Results returned from an API call

Use accessors for each attribute. If Att1 is expected to be an Paws::CloudWatchEvents::InputTransformer object:

  $result = $service_obj->Method(...);


Contains the parameters needed for you to provide custom input to a target based on one or more pieces of data extracted from the event.


InputPathsMap => Paws::CloudWatchEvents::TransformerPaths

  Map of JSON paths to be extracted from the event. You can then insert
these in the template in C<InputTemplate> to produce the output you
want to be sent to the target.

InputPathsMap is an array key-value pairs, where each value is a valid JSON path. You can have as many as 10 key-value pairs. You must use JSON dot notation, not bracket notation.

The keys cannot start with "AWS."

REQUIRED InputTemplate => Str

  Input template where you specify placeholders that will be filled with
the values of the keys from C<InputPathsMap> to customize the data sent
to the target. Enclose each C<InputPathsMaps> value in brackets:
E<lt>I<value>E<gt> The InputTemplate must be valid JSON.

If InputTemplate is a JSON object (surrounded by curly braces), the following restrictions apply:

  • The placeholder cannot be used as an object key.

  • Object values cannot include quote marks.

The following example shows the syntax for using InputPathsMap and InputTemplate.



"InputPathsMap": {"instance": "$.detail.instance","status": "$.detail.status"},

"InputTemplate": "<instance> is in state <status>"


To have the InputTemplate include quote marks within a JSON string, escape each quote marks with a slash, as in the following example:



"InputPathsMap": {"instance": "$.detail.instance","status": "$.detail.status"},

"InputTemplate": "<instance> is in state \"<status>\""



This class forms part of Paws, describing an object used in Paws::CloudWatchEvents
