The client token that is used to ensure the idempotence of the request.

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

Note If you do not specify this parameter, the system uses RequestId as ClientToken. RequestId may be different for each API request.

Specifies whether to check the request without performing the operation. Valid values:
