[ aws . configservice ]



Deploys conformance packs across member accounts in an Amazon Web Services Organization. For information on how many organization conformance packs and how many Config rules you can have per account, see ` Service Limits`__ in the Config Developer Guide .

Only a management account and a delegated administrator can call this API. When calling this API with a delegated administrator, you must ensure Organizations ListDelegatedAdministrator permissions are added. An organization can have up to 3 delegated administrators.

This API enables organization service access for through the EnableAWSServiceAccess action and creates a service-linked role AWSServiceRoleForConfigMultiAccountSetup in the management or delegated administrator account of your organization. The service-linked role is created only when the role does not exist in the caller account. To use this API with delegated administrator, register a delegated administrator by calling Amazon Web Services Organization register-delegate-admin for .


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

You must specify either the TemplateS3Uri or the TemplateBody parameter, but not both. If you provide both Config uses the TemplateS3Uri parameter and ignores the TemplateBody parameter.

Config sets the state of a conformance pack to CREATE_IN_PROGRESS and UPDATE_IN_PROGRESS until the conformance pack is created or updated. You cannot update a conformance pack while it is in this state.

--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.
