Client

class Organizations.Client

A low-level client representing AWS Organizations:

import boto3

client = boto3.client('organizations')

These are the available methods:

accept_handshake(**kwargs)

Sends a response to the originator of a handshake agreeing to the action proposed by the handshake request.

This operation can be called only by the following principals when they also have the relevant IAM permissions:

  • Invitation to join or Approve all features request handshakes: only a principal from the member account.
  • Enable all features final confirmation handshake: only a principal from the master account. For more information about invitations, see Inviting an AWS Account to Join Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide . For more information about requests to enable all features in the organization, see Enabling All Features in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

After you accept a handshake, it continues to appear in the results of relevant APIs for only 30 days. After that it is deleted.

          • Type (string) --

            The type of party.

      • State (string) --

        The current state of the handshake. Use the state to trace the flow of the handshake through the process from its creation to its acceptance. The meaning of each of the valid values is as follows:

        • REQUESTED : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some handshake types) and not all recipients have responded yet. The request stays in this state until all recipients respond.
        • OPEN : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some policy types) and all recipients have responded, allowing the originator to complete the handshake action.
        • CANCELED : This handshake is no longer active because it was canceled by the originating account.
        • ACCEPTED : This handshake is complete because it has been accepted by the recipient.
        • DECLINED : This handshake is no longer active because it was declined by the recipient account.
        • EXPIRED : This handshake is no longer active because the originator did not receive a response of any kind from the recipient before the expiration time (15 days).
      • RequestedTimestamp (datetime) --

        The date and time that the handshake request was made.

      • ExpirationTimestamp (datetime) --

        The date and time that the handshake expires. If the recipient of the handshake request fails to respond before the specified date and time, the handshake becomes inactive and is no longer valid.

      • Action (string) --

        The type of handshake, indicating what action occurs when the recipient accepts the handshake.

      • Resources (list) --

        Additional information that is needed to process the handshake.

        • (dict) --

          Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

          • Value (string) --

            The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

          • Type (string) --

            The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

            • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
            • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
            • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.
            • OWNER_EMAIL - Specifies the email address associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
            • OWNER_NAME - Specifies the name associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
            • NOTES - Additional text provided by the handshake initiator and intended for the recipient to read.
          • Resources (list) --

            When needed, contains an additional array of HandshakeResource objects.

attach_policy(**kwargs)

Attaches a policy to a root, an organizational unit, or an individual account. How the policy affects accounts depends on the type of policy:

  • Service control policy (SCP) - An SCP specifies what permissions can be delegated to users in affected member accounts. The scope of influence for a policy depends on what you attach the policy to:
    • If you attach an SCP to a root, it affects all accounts in the organization.
    • If you attach an SCP to an OU, it affects all accounts in that OU and in any child OUs.
    • If you attach the policy directly to an account, then it affects only that account.

SCPs essentially are permission "filters". When you attach one SCP to a higher level root or OU, and you also attach a different SCP to a child OU or to an account, the child policy can further restrict only the permissions that pass through the parent filter and are available to the child. An SCP that is attached to a child cannot grant a permission that is not already granted by the parent. For example, imagine that the parent SCP allows permissions A, B, C, D, and E. The child SCP allows C, D, E, F, and G. The result is that the accounts affected by the child SCP are allowed to use only C, D, and E. They cannot use A or B because they were filtered out by the child OU. They also cannot use F and G because they were filtered out by the parent OU. They cannot be granted back by the child SCP; child SCPs can only filter the permissions they receive from the parent SCP.

AWS Organizations attaches a default SCP named "FullAWSAccess to every root, OU, and account. This default SCP allows all services and actions, enabling any new child OU or account to inherit the permissions of the parent root or OU. If you detach the default policy, you must replace it with a policy that specifies the permissions that you want to allow in that OU or account.

For more information about how Organizations policies permissions work, see Using Service Control Policies in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

Request Syntax

response = client.attach_policy(
    PolicyId='string',
    TargetId='string'
)
Parameters
  • PolicyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The unique identifier (ID) of the policy that you want to attach to the target. You can get the ID for the policy by calling the ListPolicies operation.

    The regex pattern for a policy ID string requires "p-" followed by from 8 to 128 lower-case letters or digits.

  • TargetId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The unique identifier (ID) of the root, OU, or account that you want to attach the policy to. You can get the ID by calling the ListRoots , ListOrganizationalUnitsForParent , or ListAccounts operations.

    The regex pattern for a target ID string requires one of the following:

    • Root: a string that begins with "r-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.
    • Account: a string that consists of exactly 12 digits.
    • Organizational unit (OU): a string that begins with "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits (the ID of the root that the OU is in) followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lower-case letters or digits.
Returns

None

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
cancel_handshake(**kwargs)

Cancels a handshake. Canceling a handshake sets the handshake state to CANCELED .

This operation can be called only from the account that originated the handshake. The recipient of the handshake can't cancel it, but can use DeclineHandshake instead. After a handshake is canceled, the recipient can no longer respond to that handshake.

After you cancel a handshake, it continues to appear in the results of relevant APIs for only 30 days. After that it is deleted.

See also: AWS API Documentation

Request Syntax

response = client.cancel_handshake(
    HandshakeId='string'
)
Parameters
HandshakeId (string) --

[REQUIRED]

The unique identifier (ID) of the handshake that you want to cancel. You can get the ID from the ListHandshakesForOrganization operation.

The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

create_account(**kwargs)

Creates an AWS account that is automatically a member of the organization whose credentials made the request. This is an asynchronous request that AWS performs in the background. If you want to check the status of the request later, you need the OperationId response element from this operation to provide as a parameter to the DescribeCreateAccountStatus operation.

AWS Organizations preconfigures the new member account with a role (named OrganizationAccountAccessRole by default) that grants administrator permissions to the new account. Principals in the master account can assume the role. AWS Organizations clones the company name and address information for the new account from the organization's master account.

For more information about creating accounts, see Creating an AWS Account in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

Warning

You cannot remove accounts that are created with this operation from an organization. That also means that you cannot delete an organization that contains an account that is created with this operation.

Note

When you create a member account with this operation, you can choose whether to create the account with the IAM User and Role Access to Billing Information switch enabled. If you enable it, IAM users and roles that have appropriate permissions can view billing information for the account. If you disable this, then only the account root user can access billing information. For information about how to disable this for an account, see Granting Access to Your Billing Information and Tools .

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

Request Syntax

response = client.create_account(
    Email='string',
    AccountName='string',
    RoleName='string',
    IamUserAccessToBilling='ALLOW'|'DENY'
)
Parameters
  • Email (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The email address of the owner to assign to the new member account. This email address must not already be associated with another AWS account.

  • AccountName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The friendly name of the member account.

  • RoleName (string) --

    (Optional)

    The name of an IAM role that Organizations automatically preconfigures in the new member account. This role trusts the master account, allowing users in the master account to assume the role, as permitted by the master account administrator. The role has administrator permissions in the new member account.

    If you do not specify this parameter, the role name defaults to OrganizationAccountAccessRole .

    For more information about how to use this role to access the member account, see Accessing and Administering the Member Accounts in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide , and steps 2 and 3 in Tutorial: Delegate Access Across AWS Accounts Using IAM Roles in the IAM User Guide .

    The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of characters that can consist of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, digits with no spaces, and any of the following characters: =,.@-

  • IamUserAccessToBilling (string) --

    If set to ALLOW , the new account enables IAM users to access account billing information if they have the required permissions. If set to DENY , then only the root user of the new account can access account billing information. For more information, see Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide .

    If you do not specify this parameter, the value defaults to ALLOW, and IAM users and roles with the required permissions can access billing information for the new account.

        • ACCOUNT_LIMIT_EXCEEDED: The account could not be created because you have reached the limit on the number of accounts in your organization.
        • EMAIL_ALREADY_EXISTS: The account could not be created because another AWS account with that email address already exists.
        • INVALID_ADDRESS: The account could not be created because the address you provided is not valid.
        • INVALID_EMAIL: The account could not be created because the email address you provided is not valid.
        • INTERNAL_FAILURE: The account could not be created because of an internal failure. Try again later. If the problem persists, contact Customer Support.

create_organization(**kwargs)

Creates an AWS organization. The account whose user is calling the CreateOrganization operation automatically becomes the master account of the new organization.

This operation must be called using credentials from the account that is to become the new organization's master account. The principal must also have the relevant IAM permissions.

By default (or if you set the FeatureSet parameter to ALL ), the new organization is created with all features enabled and service control policies automatically enabled in the root. If you instead choose to create the organization supporting only the consolidated billing features by setting the FeatureSet parameter to CONSOLIDATED_BILLING" , then no policy types are enabled by default and you cannot use organization policies.

)
Parameters
FeatureSet (string) --

Specifies the feature set supported by the new organization. Each feature set supports different levels of functionality.

  • CONSOLIDATED_BILLING : All member accounts have their bills consolidated to and paid by the master account. For more information, see Consolidated Billing in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

decline_handshake(**kwargs)

Declines a handshake request. This sets the handshake state to DECLINED and effectively deactivates the request.

This operation can be called only from the account that received the handshake. The originator of the handshake can use CancelHandshake instead. The originator can't reactivate a declined request, but can re-initiate the process with a new handshake request.

After you decline a handshake, it continues to appear in the results of relevant APIs for only 30 days. After that it is deleted.

detach_policy(**kwargs)

Detaches a policy from a target root, organizational unit, or account. If the policy being detached is a service control policy (SCP), the changes to permissions for IAM users and roles in affected accounts are immediate.

Note: Every root, OU, and account must have at least one SCP attached. If you want to replace the default FullAWSAccess policy with one that limits the permissions that can be delegated, then you must attach the replacement policy before you can remove the default one. This is the authorization strategy of whitelisting . If you instead attach a second SCP and leave the FullAWSAccess SCP still attached, and specify "Effect": "Deny" in the second SCP to override the "Effect": "Allow" in the FullAWSAccess policy (or any other attached SCP), then you are using the authorization strategy of blacklisting .

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

enable_all_features()

Enables all features in an organization. This enables the use of organization policies that can restrict the services and actions that can be called in each account. Until you enable all features, you have access only to consolidated billing, and you can't use any of the advanced account administration features that AWS Organizations supports. For more information, see Enabling All Features in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

Warning

This operation is required only for organizations that were created explicitly with only the consolidated billing features enabled, or that were migrated from a Consolidated Billing account family to Organizations. Calling this operation sends a handshake to every invited account in the organization. The feature set change can be finalized and the additional features enabled only after all administrators in the invited accounts approve the change by accepting the handshake.

After all invited member accounts accept the handshake, you finalize the feature set change by accepting the handshake that contains "Action": "ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES" . This completes the change.

After you enable all features in your organization, the master account in the organization can apply policies on all member accounts. These policies can restrict what users and even administrators in those accounts can do. The master account can apply policies that prevent accounts from leaving the organization. Ensure that your account administrators are aware of this.

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

response = client.list_accounts(
    NextToken='string',
    MaxResults=123
)
Parameters
  • NextToken (string) -- Use this parameter if you receive a NextToken response in a previous request that indicates that there is more output available. Set it to the value of the previous call's NextToken response to indicate where the output should continue from.
  • MaxResults (integer) -- (Optional) Use this to limit the number of results you want included in the response. If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to a value that is specific to the operation. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the NextToken response element is present and has a value (is not null). Include that value as the NextToken request parameter in the next call to the operation to get the next part of the results. Note that Organizations might return fewer results than the maximum even when there are more results available. You should check NextToken after every operation to ensure that you receive all of the results.

        • State (string) --

          The current state of the handshake. Use the state to trace the flow of the handshake through the process from its creation to its acceptance. The meaning of each of the valid values is as follows:

          • REQUESTED : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some handshake types) and not all recipients have responded yet. The request stays in this state until all recipients respond.
          • OPEN : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some policy types) and all recipients have responded, allowing the originator to complete the handshake action.
          • CANCELED : This handshake is no longer active because it was canceled by the originating account.
          • ACCEPTED : This handshake is complete because it has been accepted by the recipient.
          • DECLINED : This handshake is no longer active because it was declined by the recipient account.
          • EXPIRED : This handshake is no longer active because the originator did not receive a response of any kind from the recipient before the expiration time (15 days).
        • RequestedTimestamp (datetime) --

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp (datetime) --

            Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

            • Value (string) --

              The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

            • Type (string) --

              The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

              • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
              • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
              • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.

              When needed, contains an additional array of HandshakeResource objects.

    • NextToken (string) --

      If present, this value indicates that there is more output available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null .

list_handshakes_for_organization(**kwargs)

Lists the handshakes that are associated with the organization that the requesting user is part of. The ListHandshakesForOrganization operation returns a list of handshake structures. Each structure contains details and status about a handshake.

Handshakes that are ACCEPTED, DECLINED, or CANCELED appear in the results of this API for only 30 days after changing to that state. After that they are deleted and no longer accessible.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    • Handshakes (list) --

      A list of Handshake objects with details about each of the handshakes that are associated with an organization.

      • (dict) --

        Contains information that must be exchanged to securely establish a relationship between two accounts (an originator and a recipient ). For example, when a master account (the originator) invites another account (the recipient) to join its organization, the two accounts exchange information as a series of handshake requests and responses.

        Note: Handshakes that are CANCELED, ACCEPTED, or DECLINED show up in lists for only 30 days after entering that state After that they are deleted.

        • Id (string) --

          The unique identifier (ID) of a handshake. The originating account creates the ID when it initiates the handshake.

          The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

        • Arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a handshake.

              The type of party.

        • State (string) --

          The current state of the handshake. Use the state to trace the flow of the handshake through the process from its creation to its acceptance. The meaning of each of the valid values is as follows:

          • REQUESTED : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some handshake types) and not all recipients have responded yet. The request stays in this state until all recipients respond.
          • OPEN : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some policy types) and all recipients have responded, allowing the originator to complete the handshake action.
          • CANCELED : This handshake is no longer active because it was canceled by the originating account.
          • ACCEPTED : This handshake is complete because it has been accepted by the recipient.
          • DECLINED : This handshake is no longer active because it was declined by the recipient account.
          • EXPIRED : This handshake is no longer active because the originator did not receive a response of any kind from the recipient before the expiration time (15 days).
        • RequestedTimestamp (datetime) --

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp (datetime) --

          The date and time that the handshake expires. If the recipient of the handshake request fails to respond before the specified date and time, the handshake becomes inactive and is no longer valid.

        • Action (string) --

          The type of handshake, indicating what action occurs when the recipient accepts the handshake.

        • Resources (list) --

          Additional information that is needed to process the handshake.

          • (dict) --

            Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

            • Value (string) --

              The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

            • Type (string) --

              The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

              • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
              • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
              • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.

              • OWNER_NAME - Specifies the name associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
              • NOTES - Additional text provided by the handshake initiator and intended for the recipient to read.
            • Resources (list) --

              When needed, contains an additional array of HandshakeResource objects.

    • NextToken (string) --

      If present, this value indicates that there is more output available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the NextToken request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null .

        Contains information that must be exchanged to securely establish a relationship between two accounts (an originator and a recipient ). For example, when a master account (the originator) invites another account (the recipient) to join its organization, the two accounts exchange information as a series of handshake requests and responses.

        Note: Handshakes that are CANCELED, ACCEPTED, or DECLINED show up in lists for only 30 days after entering that state After that they are deleted.

        • Id (string) --

          The unique identifier (ID) of a handshake. The originating account creates the ID when it initiates the handshake.

          The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

        • Arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a handshake.

          For more information about ARNs in Organizations, see ARN Formats Supported by Organizations in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

        • Parties (list) --

          • (dict) --

            Identifies a participant in a handshake.

            • Id (string) --

              The unique identifier (ID) for the party.

              The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

            • Type (string) --

              The type of party.

        • State (string) --

          The current state of the handshake. Use the state to trace the flow of the handshake through the process from its creation to its acceptance. The meaning of each of the valid values is as follows:

          • REQUESTED : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some handshake types) and not all recipients have responded yet. The request stays in this state until all recipients respond.
          • OPEN : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some policy types) and all recipients have responded, allowing the originator to complete the handshake action.
          • CANCELED : This handshake is no longer active because it was canceled by the originating account.
          • ACCEPTED : This handshake is complete because it has been accepted by the recipient.
          • DECLINED : This handshake is no longer active because it was declined by the recipient account.
          • EXPIRED : This handshake is no longer active because the originator did not receive a response of any kind from the recipient before the expiration time (15 days).
        • RequestedTimestamp (datetime) --

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp (datetime) --

          The date and time that the handshake expires. If the recipient of the handshake request fails to respond before the specified date and time, the handshake becomes inactive and is no longer valid.

        • Action (string) --

          The type of handshake, indicating what action occurs when the recipient accepts the handshake.

        • Resources (list) --

          Additional information that is needed to process the handshake.

          • (dict) --

            Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

            • Value (string) --

              The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

            • Type (string) --

              The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

              • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
              • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
              • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.

    • ActionType (string) --

      Specifies the type of handshake action.

      If you specify ActionType , you cannot also specify ParentHandshakeId .

    • ParentHandshakeId (string) --

      Specifies the parent handshake. Only used for handshake types that are a child of another type.

      If you specify ParentHandshakeId , you cannot also specify ActionType .

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.

Response Structure

  • (dict) --
    • Roots (list) --

      A list of roots that are defined in an organization.

      • (dict) --

        Contains details about a root. A root is a top-level parent node in the hierarchy of an organization that can contain organizational units (OUs) and accounts. Every root contains every AWS account in the organization. Each root enables the accounts to be organized in a different way and to have different policy types enabled for use in that root.

        • Id (string) --

          The unique identifier (ID) for the root.

          The regex pattern for a root ID string requires "r-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

        • Arn (string) --

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the root.

          For more information about ARNs in Organizations, see ARN Formats Supported by Organizations in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

        • Name (string) --

          The friendly name of the root.

          The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of any of the characters in the ASCII character range.

        • PolicyTypes (list) --

          The types of policies that are currently enabled for the root and therefore can be attached to the root or to its OUs or accounts.

          • (dict) --

            Contains information about a policy type and its status in the associated root.

            • Type (string) --

              The name of the policy type.

            • Status (string) --

              The status of the policy type as it relates to the associated root. To attach a policy of the specified type to a root or to an OU or account in that root, it must be available in the organization and enabled for that root.

class Organizations.Paginator.ListTargetsForPolicy
paginator = client.get_paginator('list_targets_for_policy')
paginate(**kwargs)

Creates an iterator that will paginate through responses from Organizations.Client.list_targets_for_policy().

Request Syntax

response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
    PolicyId='string',
    PaginationConfig={
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
    }
)
Parameters
  • PolicyId (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The unique identifier (ID) of the policy for which you want to know its attachments.

    The regex pattern for a policy ID string requires "p-" followed by from 8 to 128 lower-case letters or digits.

  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.
