DisableSnapshotBlockPublicAccess - Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud


Disables the block public access for snapshots setting at the account level for the specified AWS Region. After you disable block public access for snapshots in a Region, users can publicly share snapshots in that Region.

If block public access is enabled in block-all-sharing mode, and you disable block public access, all snapshots that were previously publicly shared are no longer treated as private and they become publicly accessible again.

For more information, see Block public access for snapshots in the Amazon EBS User Guide .
