PutAccountSetting

Modifies an account setting. Account settings are set on a per-Region basis.

If you change the account setting for the root user, the default settings for all of the IAM users and roles for which no individual account setting has been specified are reset. For more information, see Account Settings in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.

When serviceLongArnFormat, taskLongArnFormat, or containerInstanceLongArnFormat are specified, the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) and resource ID format of the resource type for a specified IAM user, IAM role, or the root user for an account is affected. The opt-in and opt-out account setting must be set for each Amazon ECS resource separately. The ARN and resource ID format of a resource will be defined by the opt-in status of the IAM user or role that created the resource. You must enable this setting to use Amazon ECS features such as resource tagging.

When awsvpcTrunking is specified, the elastic network interface (ENI) limit for any new container instances that support the feature is changed. If awsvpcTrunking is enabled, any new container instances that support the feature are launched have the increased ENI limits available to them. For more information, see Elastic Network Interface Trunking in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.

When containerInsights is specified, the default setting indicating whether CloudWatch Container Insights is enabled for your clusters is changed. If containerInsights is enabled, any new clusters that are created will have Container Insights enabled unless you disable it during cluster creation. For more information, see CloudWatch Container Insights in the Amazon Elastic Container Service Developer Guide.
