accept-handshake

Description

Sends a response to the originator of a handshake agreeing to the action proposed by the handshake request.

This operation can be called only by the following principals when they also have the relevant IAM permissions:

  • Invitation to join or Approve all features request handshakes: only a principal from the member account. The user who calls the API for an invitation to join must have the organizations:AcceptHandshake permission. If you enabled all features in the organization, then the user must also have the iam:CreateServiceLinkedRole permission so that Organizations can create the required service-linked role named AWSServiceRoleForOrganizations . For more information, see AWS Organizations and Service-Linked Roles in the AWS Organizations User Guide .
  • Enable all features final confirmation handshake: only a principal from the master account. For more information about invitations, see Inviting an AWS Account to Join Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide . For more information about requests to enable all features in the organization, see Enabling All Features in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

After you accept a handshake, it continues to appear in the results of relevant APIs for only 30 days. After that it is deleted.

Synopsis

  accept-handshake
--handshake-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--handshake-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the handshake that you want to accept.

The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

--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.

Examples

To accept a handshake from another account

Bill, the owner of an organization, has previously invited Juan's account to join his organization. The following example shows Juan's account accepting the handshake and thus agreeing to the invitation.

aws organizations accept-handshake --handshake-id h-examplehandshakeid111

The output shows the following:

Output

Handshake -> (structure)

A structure that contains details about the accepted handshake.

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of a handshake. The originating account creates the ID when it initiates the handshake.

The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a handshake.

For more information about ARNs in Organizations, see ARN Formats Supported by Organizations in the AWS Organizations User Guide .

Parties -> (list)

Information about the two accounts that are participating in the handshake.

(structure)

Identifies a participant in a handshake.

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier (ID) for the party.

The regex pattern for handshake ID string requires "h-" followed by from 8 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.

Type -> (string)

The type of party.

State -> (string)

The current state of the handshake. Use the state to trace the flow of the handshake through the process from its creation to its acceptance. The meaning of each of the valid values is as follows:

  • REQUESTED : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some handshake types) and not all recipients have responded yet. The request stays in this state until all recipients respond.
  • OPEN : This handshake was sent to multiple recipients (applicable to only some policy types) and all recipients have responded, allowing the originator to complete the handshake action.
  • CANCELED : This handshake is no longer active because it was canceled by the originating account.
  • ACCEPTED : This handshake is complete because it has been accepted by the recipient.
  • DECLINED : This handshake is no longer active because it was declined by the recipient account.
  • EXPIRED : This handshake is no longer active because the originator did not receive a response of any kind from the recipient before the expiration time (15 days).

RequestedTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the handshake request was made.

ExpirationTimestamp -> (timestamp)

The date and time that the handshake expires. If the recipient of the handshake request fails to respond before the specified date and time, the handshake becomes inactive and is no longer valid.

Action -> (string)

The type of handshake, indicating what action occurs when the recipient accepts the handshake. The following handshake types are supported:

  • INVITE : This type of handshake represents a request to join an organization. It is always sent from the master account to only non-member accounts.
  • ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES : This type of handshake represents a request to enable all features in an organization. It is always sent from the master account to only invited member accounts. Created accounts do not receive this because those accounts were created by the organization's master account and approval is inferred.
  • APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES : This type of handshake is sent from the Organizations service when all member accounts have approved the ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES invitation. It is sent only to the master account and signals the master that it can finalize the process to enable all features.

Resources -> (list)

Additional information that is needed to process the handshake.

(structure)

Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

Value -> (string)

  • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
  • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
