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.

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 operationId that uniquely identifies the request. You can get the ID from the response to an earlier create-account request, or from the list-create-account-status operation.

The regex pattern for an create account request ID string requires "car-" 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.

--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"
  }
}
