API Reference

ListObjectParentPaths

Retrieves all available parent paths for any object type such as node, leaf node, policy node, and index node objects. For more information about objects, see Directory Structure.

Use this API to evaluate all parents for an object. The call returns all objects from the root of the directory up to the requested object. The API returns the number of paths based on user-defined MaxResults, in case there are multiple paths to the parent. The order of the paths and nodes returned is consistent among multiple API calls unless the objects are deleted or moved. Paths not leading to the directory root are ignored from the target object.

Errors

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

AccessDeniedException

Access denied. Check your permissions.

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

InvalidNextTokenException

Indicates that the NextToken value is not valid.

HTTP Status Code: 400

LimitExceededException

Indicates that limits are exceeded. See Limits for more information.

HTTP Status Code: 400

ResourceNotFoundException

The specified resource could not be found.

HTTP Status Code: 404

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.
