AWS::Macie::Session - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::Macie::Session

The AWS::Macie::Session resource represents the Amazon Macie service and certain configuration settings for an Amazon Macie account in a specific AWS Region. It enables Macie to become operational for a specific account in a specific Region. An account can have only one session in each Region.

You must create an AWS::Macie::Session resource for an account before you can create other types of resources for the account. Use a DependsOn attribute to ensure that an AWS::Macie::Session resource is created before other Macie resources are created for an account. For example, "DependsOn": "Session".
