API Reference (API Version 2010-05-08)

ListAccountAliases

Lists the account alias associated with the AWS account (Note: you can have only one). For information about using an AWS account alias, see Using an Alias for Your AWS Account ID in the IAM User Guide.

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

Marker

Use this parameter only when paginating results and only after you receive a response indicating that the results are truncated. Set it to the value of the Marker element in the response that you received to indicate where the next call should start.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 320.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]+

Required: No

MaxItems

(Optional) Use this only when paginating results to indicate the maximum number of items you want in the response. If additional items exist beyond the maximum you specify, the IsTruncated response element is true.

If you do not include this parameter, it defaults to 100. Note that IAM might return fewer results, even when there are more results available. In that case, the IsTruncated response element returns true and Marker contains a value to include in the subsequent call that tells the service where to continue from.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 1000.

Required: No

Response Elements

The following elements are returned by the service.

AccountAliases.member.N

A list of aliases associated with the account. AWS supports only one alias per account.

Type: Array of strings

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 3. Maximum length of 63.

Pattern: ^[a-z0-9](([a-z0-9]|-(?!-))*[a-z0-9])?$

IsTruncated

A flag that indicates whether there are more items to return. If your results were truncated, you can make a subsequent pagination request using the Marker request parameter to retrieve more items. Note that IAM might return fewer than the MaxItems number of results even when there are more results available. We recommend that you check IsTruncated after every call to ensure that you receive all of your results.

Type: Boolean

Marker

When IsTruncated is true, this element is present and contains the value to use for the Marker parameter in a subsequent pagination request.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 320.

Pattern: [\u0020-\u00FF]+

Errors

For information about the errors that are common to all actions, see Common Errors.

ServiceFailure

The request processing has failed because of an unknown error, exception or failure.

HTTP Status Code: 500
