You can use the client to generate the token, but you must make sure that the token is unique among different requests. The client token can contain only ASCII characters.

Note If you do not specify this parameter, the system automatically uses the request ID as the client token. The request ID may be different for each request.

Specifies whether to perform only a dry run, without performing the actual request. Valid values:

true: performs only a dry run. The system checks the request for potential issues, including missing parameter values, incorrect request syntax, and service limits.
