Lists the account settings for a specified principal.

Request Syntax

{ "effectiveSettings": boolean, "maxResults": number, "name": "string", "nextToken": "string", "principalArn": "string", "value": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


Specifies whether to return the effective settings. If true, the account settings for the root user or the default setting for the principalArn are returned. If false, the account settings for the principalArn are returned if they are set. Otherwise, no account settings are returned.

Type: Boolean

Required: No


The maximum number of account setting results returned by ListAccountSettings in paginated output. When this parameter is used, ListAccountSettings only returns maxResults results in a single page along with a nextToken response element. The remaining results of the initial request can be seen by sending another ListAccountSettings request with the returned nextToken value. This value can be between 1 and 10. If this parameter is not used, then ListAccountSettings returns up to 10 results and a nextToken value if applicable.

Type: Integer

Required: No


The resource name you want to list the account settings for.

Type: String

Valid Values: serviceLongArnFormat | taskLongArnFormat | containerInstanceLongArnFormat | awsvpcTrunking | containerInsights

Required: No


The nextToken value returned from a previous paginated ListAccountSettings request where maxResults was used and the results exceeded the value of that parameter. Pagination continues from the end of the previous results that returned the nextToken value.


This token should be treated as an opaque identifier that is only used to retrieve the next items in a list and not for other programmatic purposes.

Type: String

Required: No


The ARN of the principal, which can be an IAM user, IAM role, or the root user. If this field is omitted, the account settings are listed only for the authenticated user.

Type: String

Required: No


The value of the account settings with which to filter results. You must also specify an account setting name to use this parameter.

Type: String

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "nextToken": "string", "settings": [ { "name": "string", "principalArn": "string", "value": "string" } ] }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The nextToken value to include in a future ListAccountSettings request. When the results of a ListAccountSettings request exceed maxResults, this value can be used to retrieve the next page of results. This value is null when there are no more results to return.

Type: String


The account settings for the resource.

Type: Array of Setting objects
