[ aws . health ]

describe-event-details-for-organization

Description

Returns detailed information about one or more specified events for one or more Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization. This information includes standard event data (such as the Amazon Web Services Region and service), an event description, and (depending on the event) possible metadata. This operation doesn't return affected entities, such as the resources related to the event. To return affected entities, use the DescribeAffectedEntitiesForOrganization operation.

Note

Before you can call this operation, you must first enable Health to work with Organizations. To do this, call the EnableHealthServiceAccessForOrganization operation from your organization's management account.

When you call the DescribeEventDetailsForOrganization operation, specify the organizationEventDetailFilters object in the request. Depending on the Health event type, note the following differences:

  • To return event details for a public event, you must specify a null value for the awsAccountId parameter. If you specify an account ID for a public event, Health returns an error message because public events aren't specific to an account.
  • To return event details for an event that is specific to an account in your organization, you must specify the awsAccountId parameter in the request. If you don't specify an account ID, Health returns an error message because the event is specific to an account in your organization.

For more information, see Event .

Note

This operation doesn't support resource-level permissions. You can't use this operation to allow or deny access to specific Health events. For more information, see Resource- and action-based conditions in the Health User Guide .

Synopsis

  describe-event-details-for-organization
--organization-event-detail-filters <value>
[--locale <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--organization-event-detail-filters (list)

A set of JSON elements that includes the awsAccountId and the eventArn .

(structure)

The values used to filter results from the DescribeEventDetailsForOrganization and DescribeAffectedEntitiesForOrganization operations.

eventArn -> (string)

The unique identifier for the event. The event ARN has the ``arn:aws:health:event-region ::event/SERVICE /EVENT_TYPE_CODE /EVENT_TYPE_PLUS_ID `` format.

For example, an event ARN might look like the following:

arn:aws:health:us-east-1::event/EC2/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED_ABC123-DEF456

awsAccountId -> (string)

The 12-digit Amazon Web Services account numbers that contains the affected entities.

Shorthand Syntax:

eventArn=string,awsAccountId=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "eventArn": "string",
    "awsAccountId": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--locale (string)

The locale (language) to return information in. English (en) is the default and the only supported value at this time.

--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

successfulSet -> (list)

Information about the events that could be retrieved.

(structure)

Detailed information about an event. A combination of an Event object, an EventDescription object, and additional metadata about the event. Returned by the DescribeEventDetailsForOrganization operation.

awsAccountId -> (string)

The 12-digit Amazon Web Services account numbers that contains the affected entities.

event -> (structure)

Summary information about an Health event.

Health events can be public or account-specific:

  • Public events might be service events that are not specific to an Amazon Web Services account. For example, if there is an issue with an Amazon Web Services Region, Health provides information about the event, even if you don't use services or resources in that Region.
  • Account-specific events are specific to either your Amazon Web Services account or an account in your organization. For example, if there's an issue with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud in a Region that you use, Health provides information about the event and the affected resources in the account.

You can determine if an event is public or account-specific by using the eventScopeCode parameter. For more information, see eventScopeCode .

arn -> (string)

The unique identifier for the event. The event ARN has the ``arn:aws:health:event-region ::event/SERVICE /EVENT_TYPE_CODE /EVENT_TYPE_PLUS_ID `` format.

For example, an event ARN might look like the following:

arn:aws:health:us-east-1::event/EC2/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED/EC2_INSTANCE_RETIREMENT_SCHEDULED_ABC123-DEF456

service -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services service that is affected by the event. For example, EC2 , RDS .

eventTypeCode -> (string)

The unique identifier for the event type. The format is AWS_*SERVICE* _*DESCRIPTION* `` ; for example, ``AWS_EC2_SYSTEM_MAINTENANCE_EVENT .

eventTypeCategory -> (string)

A list of event type category codes. Possible values are issue , accountNotification , or scheduledChange . Currently, the investigation value isn't supported at this time.

region -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services Region name of the event.

availabilityZone -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services Availability Zone of the event. For example, us-east-1a.

startTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the event began.

endTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the event ended.

lastUpdatedTime -> (timestamp)

The most recent date and time that the event was updated.

statusCode -> (string)

The most recent status of the event. Possible values are open , closed , and upcoming .

eventScopeCode -> (string)

This parameter specifies if the Health event is a public Amazon Web Services service event or an account-specific event.

  • If the eventScopeCode value is PUBLIC , then the affectedAccounts value is always empty.
  • If the eventScopeCode value is ACCOUNT_SPECIFIC , then the affectedAccounts value lists the affected Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization. For example, if an event affects a service such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and you have Amazon Web Services accounts that use that service, those account IDs appear in the response.
  • If the eventScopeCode value is NONE , then the eventArn that you specified in the request is invalid or doesn't exist.

eventDescription -> (structure)

The detailed description of the event. Included in the information returned by the DescribeEventDetails operation.

latestDescription -> (string)

The most recent description of the event.

eventMetadata -> (map)

Additional metadata about the event.

key -> (string)

awsAccountId -> (string)

Error information returned when a DescribeEventDetailsForOrganization operation can't find a specified event.

eventArn -> (string)

errorMessage -> (string)

A message that describes the error.

If you call the DescribeEventDetailsForOrganization operation and receive one of the following errors, follow the recommendations in the message:

  • We couldn't find a public event that matches your request. To find an event that is account specific, you must enter an Amazon Web Services account ID in the request.
  • We couldn't find an account specific event for the specified Amazon Web Services account. To find an event that is public, you must enter a null value for the Amazon Web Services account ID in the request.
  • Your Amazon Web Services account doesn't include the Amazon Web Services Support plan required to use the Health API. You must have either a Business or Enterprise Support plan.
