Update an Account's CloudWatch role

The following example updates an account's CloudWatch role ARN by replacing the existing one with a new CloudWatch role ARN.

If you specify an invalid role, i.e., a role that does not permit API Gateway to invoke CloudWatch logs, you will receive an error response. If you attempt to replace the throttleSettings, in part or as a whole, you will receive 400 Bad Request response with an error message stating that /throttleSettings value cannot be changed this way, but the /cloudwatchRoleArn value can.
