[ aws . compute-optimizer ]



Updates the enrollment (opt in and opt out) status of an account to the AWS Compute Optimizer service.

If the account is a management account of an organization, this action can also be used to enroll member accounts within the organization.

You must have the appropriate permissions to opt in to Compute Optimizer, to view its recommendations, and to opt out. For more information, see Controlling access with AWS Identity and Access Management in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

When you opt in, Compute Optimizer automatically creates a Service-Linked Role in your account to access its data. For more information, see Using Service-Linked Roles for AWS Compute Optimizer in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .

--status <value>
[--include-member-accounts | --no-include-member-accounts]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--status (string)

The new enrollment status of the account.

The following status options are available:

  • Active - Opts in your account to the Compute Optimizer service. Compute Optimizer begins analyzing the configuration and utilization metrics of your AWS resources after you opt in. For more information, see Metrics analyzed by AWS Compute Optimizer in the Compute Optimizer User Guide .
  • Inactive - Opts out your account from the Compute Optimizer service. Your account's recommendations and related metrics data will be deleted from Compute Optimizer after you opt out.


The Pending and Failed options cannot be used to update the enrollment status of an account. They are returned in the response of a request to update the enrollment status of an account.

Possible values:

  • Active
  • Inactive
  • Pending
  • Failed

--include-member-accounts | --no-include-member-accounts (boolean)

Indicates whether to enroll member accounts of the organization if the account is the management account of an organization.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


status -> (string)

The enrollment status of the account.

statusReason -> (string)

The reason for the enrollment status of the account. For example, an account might show a status of Pending because member accounts of an organization require more time to be enrolled in the service.
