Options

--account-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the account that you want to move.

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

--source-parent-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the root or organizational unit that you want to move the account from.

The regex pattern for a parent 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.
  • 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.

--destination-parent-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the root or organizational unit that you want to move the account to.

The regex pattern for a parent 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.
  • 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.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
