[ aws . configservice ]

put-organization-config-rule

Description

Adds or updates organization config rule for your entire organization evaluating whether your AWS resources comply with your desired configurations.

Only a master account and a delegated administrator can create or update an organization config rule. When calling this API with a delegated administrator, you must ensure AWS Organizations ListDelegatedAdministrator permissions are added.

This API enables organization service access through the EnableAWSServiceAccess action and creates a service linked role AWSServiceRoleForConfigMultiAccountSetup in the master or delegated administrator account of your organization. The service linked role is created only when the role does not exist in the caller account. AWS Config verifies the existence of role with GetRole action.

To use this API with delegated administrator, register a delegated administrator by calling AWS Organization register-delegated-administrator for config-multiaccountsetup.amazonaws.com .

You can use this action to create both custom AWS Config rules and AWS managed Config rules. If you are adding a new custom AWS Config rule, you must first create AWS Lambda function in the master account or a delegated administrator that the rule invokes to evaluate your resources. When you use the PutOrganizationConfigRule action to add the rule to AWS Config, you must specify the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) that AWS Lambda assigns to the function. If you are adding an AWS managed Config rule, specify the rule's identifier for the RuleIdentifier key.

The maximum number of organization config rules that AWS Config supports is 150 and 3 delegated administrator per organization.

Note

Prerequisite: Ensure you call EnableAllFeatures API to enable all features in an organization.

Specify either OrganizationCustomRuleMetadata or OrganizationManagedRuleMetadata .

--organization-config-rule-name <value>
[--organization-managed-rule-metadata <value>]
[--organization-custom-rule-metadata <value>]
[--excluded-accounts <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--organization-config-rule-name (string)

The name that you assign to an organization config rule.

--organization-managed-rule-metadata (structure)

An OrganizationManagedRuleMetadata object.

Description -> (string)

The description that you provide for organization config rule.

RuleIdentifier -> (string)

For organization config managed rules, a predefined identifier from a list. For example, IAM_PASSWORD_POLICY is a managed rule. To reference a managed rule, see Using AWS Managed Config Rules .

InputParameters -> (string)

A string, in JSON format, that is passed to organization config rule Lambda function.

MaximumExecutionFrequency -> (string)

The maximum frequency with which AWS Config runs evaluations for a rule. You are using an AWS managed rule that is triggered at a periodic frequency.

Note

By default, rules with a periodic trigger are evaluated every 24 hours. To change the frequency, specify a valid value for the MaximumExecutionFrequency parameter.

ResourceTypesScope -> (list)

The type of the AWS resource that was evaluated.

(string)

ResourceIdScope -> (string)

The ID of the AWS resource that was evaluated.

TagKeyScope -> (string)

One part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

TagValueScope -> (string)

The optional part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

Shorthand Syntax:

Description=string,RuleIdentifier=string,InputParameters=string,MaximumExecutionFrequency=string,ResourceTypesScope=string,string,ResourceIdScope=string,TagKeyScope=string,TagValueScope=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Description": "string",
  "RuleIdentifier": "string",
  "InputParameters": "string",
  "MaximumExecutionFrequency": "One_Hour"|"Three_Hours"|"Six_Hours"|"Twelve_Hours"|"TwentyFour_Hours",
  "ResourceTypesScope": ["string", ...],
  "ResourceIdScope": "string",
  "TagKeyScope": "string",
  "TagValueScope": "string"
}

--organization-custom-rule-metadata (structure)

An OrganizationCustomRuleMetadata object.

Description -> (string)

The description that you provide for organization config rule.

LambdaFunctionArn -> (string)

The lambda function ARN.

OrganizationConfigRuleTriggerTypes -> (list)

The type of notification that triggers AWS Config to run an evaluation for a rule. You can specify the following notification types:

  • ConfigurationItemChangeNotification - Triggers an evaluation when AWS Config delivers a configuration item as a result of a resource change.
  • OversizedConfigurationItemChangeNotification - Triggers an evaluation when AWS Config delivers an oversized configuration item. AWS Config may generate this notification type when a resource changes and the notification exceeds the maximum size allowed by Amazon SNS.
  • ScheduledNotification - Triggers a periodic evaluation at the frequency specified for MaximumExecutionFrequency .

(string)

InputParameters -> (string)

A string, in JSON format, that is passed to organization config rule Lambda function.

MaximumExecutionFrequency -> (string)

The maximum frequency with which AWS Config runs evaluations for a rule. Your custom rule is triggered when AWS Config delivers the configuration snapshot. For more information, see ConfigSnapshotDeliveryProperties .

Note

By default, rules with a periodic trigger are evaluated every 24 hours. To change the frequency, specify a valid value for the MaximumExecutionFrequency parameter.

ResourceTypesScope -> (list)

The type of the AWS resource that was evaluated.

(string)

ResourceIdScope -> (string)

The ID of the AWS resource that was evaluated.

TagKeyScope -> (string)

One part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A key is a general label that acts like a category for more specific tag values.

TagValueScope -> (string)

The optional part of a key-value pair that make up a tag. A value acts as a descriptor within a tag category (key).

}

--excluded-accounts (list)

A comma-separated list of accounts that you want to exclude from an organization config rule.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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.

Output

OrganizationConfigRuleArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an organization config rule.
