enable-ebs-encryption-by-default

Description

Enables EBS encryption by default for your account in the current Region.

After you enable encryption by default, the EBS volumes that you create are are always encrypted, either using the default CMK or the CMK that you specified when you created each volume. For more information, see Amazon EBS Encryption in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .

You can specify the default CMK for encryption by default using ModifyEbsDefaultKmsKeyId or ResetEbsDefaultKmsKeyId .

Enabling encryption by default has no effect on the encryption status of your existing volumes.

After you enable encryption by default, you can no longer launch instances using instance types that do not support encryption. For more information, see Supported Instance Types .

Synopsis

  enable-ebs-encryption-by-default
[--dry-run | --no-dry-run]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--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

EbsEncryptionByDefault -> (boolean)

The updated status of encryption by default.
