      Attachments => [
          Key    => 'SourceUrl',    # values: SourceUrl; OPTIONAL
          Values => [
            'MyAttachmentsSourceValue', ...    # min: 1, max: 1024
          ],                                   # min: 1, max: 1; OPTIONAL

Values for attributes that are native types (Int, String, Float, etc) can passed as-is (scalar values). Values for complex Types (objects) can be passed as a HashRef. The keys and values of the hashref will be used to instance the underlying object. For the AWS API documentation, see

A list of key and value pairs that describe attachments to a version of a document.
