PutAlternateContact - AWS Account Management

PutAlternateContact

Modifies the specified alternate contact attached to an AWS account.

For complete details about how to use the alternate contact operations, see Access or updating the alternate contacts.

Note

Before you can update the alternate contact information for an AWS account that is managed by AWS Organizations, you must first enable integration between AWS Account Management and Organizations. For more information, see Enabling trusted access for AWS Account Management.

Request Syntax

POST /putAlternateContact HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "AccountId": "string", "AlternateContactType": "string", "EmailAddress": "string", "Name": "string", "PhoneNumber": "string", "Title": "string" }

URI Request Parameters

The request does not use any URI parameters.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

AccountId

Specifies the 12 digit account ID number of the AWS account that you want to access or modify with this operation.

If you do not specify this parameter, it defaults to the AWS account of the identity used to call the operation.

To use this parameter, the caller must be an identity in the organization's management account or a delegated administrator account, and the specified account ID must be a member account in the same organization. The organization must have all features enabled, and the organization must have trusted access enabled for the Account Management service, and optionally a delegated admin account assigned.

Note

The management account can't specify its own AccountId; it must call the operation in standalone context by not including the AccountId parameter.

To call this operation on an account that is not a member of an organization, then don't specify this parameter, and call the operation using an identity belonging to the account whose contacts you wish to retrieve or modify.
