describe-create-account-status

Description

Retrieves the current status of an asynchronous request to create an account.

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account or by a member account that is a delegated administrator for an AWS service.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-create-account-status
--create-account-request-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--create-account-request-id (string)

Specifies the Id value that uniquely identifies the CreateAccount request. You can get the value from the CreateAccountStatus.Id response in an earlier CreateAccount request, or from the ListCreateAccountStatus operation.

The regex pattern for a create account request ID string requires "car-" followed by from 8 to 32 lowercase 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 get the latest status about a request to create an account

The following example shows how to request the latest status for a previous request to create an account in an organization. The specified --request-id comes from the response of the original call to create-account. The account creation request shows by the status field that Organizations successfully completed the creation of the account.

Command:

aws organizations describe-create-account-status --create-account-request-id car-examplecreateaccountrequestid111

Output:

{
  "CreateAccountStatus": {
    "State": "SUCCEEDED",
    "AccountId": "555555555555",
    "AccountName": "Beta account",
    "RequestedTimestamp": 1470684478.687,
    "CompletedTimestamp": 1470684532.472,
    "Id": "car-examplecreateaccountrequestid111"
  }
}
