Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using Organizations

var organizations = new AWS.Organizations();
organizations.listPoliciesForTarget(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the Organizations object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var organizations = new AWS.Organizations({apiVersion: '2016-11-28'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the organizations service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  organizations: '2016-11-28',
  // other service API versions
};

var organizations = new AWS.Organizations();

Examples:

Constructing a Organizations object

var organizations = new AWS.Organizations({apiVersion: '2016-11-28'});

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.Organizations.region for more information.

  • maxRetries (Integer)

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.Organizations.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.Organizations.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).
    • xhrWithCredentials [Boolean] — Sets the "withCredentials" property of an XMLHttpRequest object. Used in the browser environment only. Defaults to false.
  • apiVersion (String, Date)

    a String in YYYY-MM-DD format (or a date) that represents the latest possible API version that can be used in all services (unless overridden by apiVersions). Specify 'latest' to use the latest possible version.

  • apiVersions (map<String, String|Date>)

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time. Note that this configuration option can only be applied to the global AWS.config object and cannot be overridden in service-specific configuration. Defaults to 0 milliseconds.

  • signatureVersion (String)

    the signature version to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration). Possible values are: 'v2', 'v3', 'v4'.

  • signatureCache (Boolean)

    whether the signature to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration) is cached. Only applies to the signature version 'v4'. Defaults to true.

  • dynamoDbCrc32 (Boolean)

    whether to validate the CRC32 checksum of HTTP response bodies returned by DynamoDB. Default: true.

endpointAWS.Endpoint (readwrite)

Returns an Endpoint object representing the endpoint URL for service requests.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Endpoint)

    an Endpoint object representing the endpoint URL for service requests.

Method Details

acceptHandshake(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

attachPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

    • TargetId — (String)

      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.

cancelHandshake(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

          • 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).

          Possible values include:
          • "REQUESTED"
          • "OPEN"
          • "CANCELED"
          • "ACCEPTED"
          • "DECLINED"

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp — (Date)

          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.

          Possible values include:

          Additional information that is needed to process the 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.

createAccount(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

When you create an account in an organization using the AWS Organizations console, API, or CLI commands, the information required for the account to operate as a standalone account, such as a payment method and signing the End User Licence Agreement (EULA) is not automatically collected. If you must remove an account from your organization later, you can do so only after you provide the missing information. Follow the steps at To leave an organization when all required account information has not yet been provided in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

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.

If you get an exception that indicates that you exceeded your account limits for the organization or that you can"t add an account because your organization is still initializing, please contact AWS Customer Support.

Examples:

To create a new account that is automatically part of the organization


/* The owner of an organization creates a member account in the organization. The following example shows that when the organization owner creates the member account, the account is preconfigured with the name "Production Account" and an owner email address of susan@example.com.  An IAM role is automatically created using the default name because the roleName parameter is not used. AWS Organizations sends Susan a "Welcome to AWS" email:

*/

 var params = {
  AccountName: "Production Account", 
  Email: "susan@example.com"
 };
 organizations.createAccount(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response
   /*
   data = {
    CreateAccountStatus: {
     Id: "car-examplecreateaccountrequestid111", 
     State: "IN_PROGRESS"
    }
   }
   */
 });

Calling the createAccount operation

var params = {
  AccountName: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  Email: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  IamUserAccessToBilling: ALLOW | DENY,
  RoleName: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
organizations.createAccount(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Email — (String)

      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. You must use a valid email address to complete account creation. You cannot access the root user of the account or remove an account that was created with an invalid email address.

    • AccountName — (String)

      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.

      Possible values include:
      • "ALLOW"
      • "DENY"

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • CreateAccountStatus — (map)

        A structure that contains details about the request to create an account. This response structure might not be fully populated when you first receive it because account creation is an asynchronous process. You can pass the returned CreateAccountStatus ID as a parameter to DescribeCreateAccountStatus to get status about the progress of the request at later times.

        • Id — (String)

          The unique identifier (ID) that references this request. You get this value from the response of the initial CreateAccount request to create the account.

          The regex pattern for an create account request ID string requires "car-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

        • AccountName — (String)

          The account name given to the account when it was created.

        • State — (String)

          The status of the request.

          Possible values include:

          The date and time that the account was created and the request completed.

        • AccountId — (String)

          If the account was created successfully, the unique identifier (ID) of the new account.

          The regex pattern for an account ID string requires exactly 12 digits.

        • FailureReason — (String)

          If the request failed, a description of the reason for the failure.

          • 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.

          Possible values include:
          • "ACCOUNT_LIMIT_EXCEEDED"
          • "EMAIL_ALREADY_EXISTS"

createOrganization(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

Service Reference:

Examples:

To create a new organization with all features enabled


/* Bill wants to create an organization using credentials from account 111111111111. The following example shows that the account becomes the master account in the new organization. Because he does not specify a feature set, the new organization defaults to all features enabled and service control policies enabled on the root:

*/

 var params = {
 };
 organizations.createOrganization(params, function(err, data) {
   if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
   else     console.log(data);           // successful response

declineHandshake(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

          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).

          Possible values include:
          • "REQUESTED"
          • "OPEN"

Calling the describeHandshake operation

var params = {
  HandshakeId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
};
organizations.describeHandshake(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Handshake — (map)

        A structure that contains information about the specified handshake.

        • 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 — (Array<map>)

          Information about the two accounts that are participating in the handshake.

          • Idrequired — (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.

          • Typerequired — (String)

            The type of party.

            Possible values include:
            • "ACCOUNT"

            • "EMAIL"
        • 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).

          Possible values include:
          • "REQUESTED"
          • "OPEN"
          • "CANCELED"
          • "ACCEPTED"

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp — (Date)

          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.

          Possible values include:
          • "INVITE"
          • "ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES"
          • "APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES"
        • Resources — (Array<map>)

          Additional information that is needed to process the 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.

            • 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.

            Possible values include:
            • "ACCOUNT"
            • "ORGANIZATION"
            • "ORGANIZATION_FEATURE_SET"

detachPolicy(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

enableAllFeatures(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

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.

/* This example shows the administrator asking all the invited accounts in the organization to approve enabling all features in the organization. AWS Organizations sends an email to the address that is registered with every invited member account asking the owner to approve the change by accepting the handshake that is sent. After all invited member accounts accept the handshake, the organization administrator can finalize the change to enable all features, and those with appropriate permissions can create policies and apply them to roots, OUs, and accounts:/n/n */

inviteAccountToOrganization(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Sends an invitation to another account to join your organization as a member account. Organizations sends email on your behalf to the email address that is associated with the other account's owner. The invitation is implemented as a Handshake whose details are in the response.

You can invite AWS accounts only from the same seller as the master account. For example, if your organization's master account was created by Amazon Internet Services Pvt. Ltd (AISPL), an AWS seller in India, then you can only invite other AISPL accounts to your organization. You can't combine accounts from AISPL and AWS, or any other AWS seller. For more information, see Consolidated Billing in India.

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

If you get an exception that indicates that you exceeded your account limits for the organization or that you can"t add an account because your organization is still initializing, please contact AWS Customer Support.

leaveOrganization(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Removes a member account from its parent organization. This version of the operation is performed by the account that wants to leave. To remove a member account as a user in the master account, use RemoveAccountFromOrganization instead.

This operation can be called only from a member account in the organization.

  • The master account in an organization with all features enabled can set service control policies (SCPs) that can restrict what administrators of member accounts can do, including preventing them from successfully calling LeaveOrganization and leaving the organization.

  • You can leave an organization as a member account only if the account is configured with the information required to operate as a standalone account. When you create an account in an organization using the AWS Organizations console, API, or CLI commands, the information required of standalone accounts is not automatically collected. For each account that you want to make standalone, you must accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), choose a support plan, provide and verify the required contact information, and provide a current payment method. AWS uses the payment method to charge for any billable (not free tier) AWS activity that occurs while the account is not attached to an organization. Follow the steps at To leave an organization when all required account information has not yet been provided in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

  • You can leave an organization only after you enable IAM user access to billing in your account. For more information, see Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listAccounts(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Lists all the accounts in the organization. To request only the accounts in a root or OU, use the ListAccountsForParent operation instead.

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

Calling the listAccounts operation

var params = {
  MaxResults: 0,
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
organizations.listAccounts(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

        A list of objects in the organization.

        • Id — (String)

          The unique identifier (ID) of the account.

          The regex pattern for an account ID string requires exactly 12 digits.

        • Arn — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the account.

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

        • Email — (String)

You should repeat this until the NextToken response element comes back as null.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listAccountsForParent(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Lists the accounts in an organization that are contained by the specified target root or organizational unit (OU). If you specify the root, you get a list of all the accounts that are not in any OU.

Calling the listHandshakesForAccount operation

var params = {
  Filter: {
    ActionType: INVITE | ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES | APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES,
    ParentHandshakeId: 'STRING_VALUE'
  },
  MaxResults: 0,
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
organizations.listHandshakesForAccount(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • Filter — (map)

      Filters the handshakes that you want included in the response. The default is all types. Use the ActionType element to limit the output to only a specified type, such as INVITE, ENABLE-FULL-CONTROL, or APPROVE-FULL-CONTROL. Alternatively, for the ENABLE-FULL-CONTROL handshake that generates a separate child handshake for each member account, you can specify ParentHandshakeId to see only the handshakes that were generated by that parent request.

      • ActionType — (String)

        Specifies the type of handshake action.

        If you specify ActionType, you cannot also specify ParentHandshakeId.

        Possible values include:
        • "INVITE"
        • "ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES"
        • "APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES"
      • 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.

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

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Handshakes — (Array<map>)

        A list of Handshake objects with details about each of the handshakes that is associated with the specified account.

        • 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 — (Array<map>)

          Information about the two accounts that are participating in the handshake.

          • Idrequired — (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.

          • Typerequired — (String)

            The type of party.

            Possible values include:
            • "ACCOUNT"
            • "ORGANIZATION"
            • "EMAIL"
        • 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).

          Possible values include:
          • "REQUESTED"
          • "OPEN"
          • "CANCELED"
          • "ACCEPTED"
          • "DECLINED"
          • "EXPIRED"
        • RequestedTimestamp — (Date)

          The date and time that the handshake request was made.

        • ExpirationTimestamp — (Date)

          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.

          Possible values include:
          • "INVITE"
          • "ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES"
          • "APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES"
        • Resources — (Array<map>)

          Additional information that is needed to process the 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.

            Possible values include:
            • "ACCOUNT"
            • "ORGANIZATION"
            • "ORGANIZATION_FEATURE_SET"
            • "EMAIL"
            • "MASTER_EMAIL"
            • "MASTER_NAME"
            • "NOTES"
            • "PARENT_HANDSHAKE"
      • 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.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

listHandshakesForOrganization(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

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.

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

      • 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.

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • OrganizationalUnits — (Array<map>)

        A list of the OUs in the specified root or parent OU.

        • Id — (String)

          The unique identifier (ID) associated with this OU.

          The regex pattern for an organizational unit ID string requires "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits (the ID of the root that contains the OU) followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lower-case letters or digits.

        • Arn — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of this OU.

  PolicyId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  MaxResults: 0,
  NextToken: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
organizations.listTargetsForPolicy(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • PolicyId — (String)

      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.

    • 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.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • Targets — (Array<map>)

        A list of structures, each of which contains details about one of the entities to which the specified policy is attached.

        • TargetId — (String)

          The unique identifier (ID) of the policy target.

          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.

        • Arn — (String)

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the policy target.

          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 policy target.

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

        • Type — (String)

          The type of the policy target.

          Possible values include:
          • "ACCOUNT"
          • "ORGANIZATIONAL_UNIT"
          • "ROOT"
      • 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.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

removeAccountFromOrganization(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Removes the specified account from the organization.

The removed account becomes a stand-alone account that is not a member of any organization. It is no longer subject to any policies and is responsible for its own bill payments. The organization's master account is no longer charged for any expenses accrued by the member account after it is removed from the organization.

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account. Member accounts can remove themselves with LeaveOrganization instead.

  • You can remove an account from your organization only if the account is configured with the information required to operate as a standalone account. When you create an account in an organization using the AWS Organizations console, API, or CLI commands, the information required of standalone accounts is not automatically collected. For an account that you want to make standalone, you must accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), choose a support plan, provide and verify the required contact information, and provide a current payment method. AWS uses the payment method to charge for any billable (not free tier) AWS activity that occurs while the account is not attached to an organization. To remove an account that does not yet have this information, you must sign in as the member account and follow the steps at To leave an organization when all required account information has not yet been provided in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

  • You can remove a member account only after you enable IAM user access to billing in the member account. For more information, see Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.
