HTTP Status Code: 403

DirectoryNotEnabledException

An operation can only operate on a directory that is not enabled.

HTTP Status Code: 400

InternalServiceException

Indicates a problem that must be resolved by Amazon Web Services. This might be a transient error in which case you can retry your request until it succeeds. Otherwise, go to the AWS Service Health Dashboard site to see if there are any operational issues with the service.

HTTP Status Code: 500

InvalidArnException

Indicates that the provided ARN value is not valid.

HTTP Status Code: 400

LimitExceededException

ResourceNotFoundException

RetryableConflictException

Occurs when a conflict with a previous successful write is detected. For example, if a write operation occurs on an object and then an attempt is made to read the object using “SERIALIZABLE” consistency, this exception may result. This generally occurs when the previous write did not have time to propagate to the host serving the current request. A retry (with appropriate backoff logic) is the recommended response to this exception.

HTTP Status Code: 409

ValidationException

Indicates that your request is malformed in some manner. See the exception message.
