list-handshakes-for-account

Description

Lists the current handshakes that are associated with the account of the requesting user.

Handshakes that are ACCEPTED, DECLINED, or CANCELED appear in the results of this API for only 30 days after changing to that state. After that they are deleted and no longer accessible.

Note

Always check the next-token response parameter for a null value when calling a List* operation. These operations can occasionally return an empty set of results even when there are more results available. The next-token response parameter value is null only when there are no more results to display.

This operation can be called from any account in the organization.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-handshakes-for-account is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: Handshakes

Synopsis

  list-handshakes-for-account
[--filter <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--filter (structure)

Filters the handshakes that you want included in the response. The default is all types. Use the ActionType element to limit the output to only a specified type, such as INVITE , ENABLE-FULL-CONTROL , or APPROVE-FULL-CONTROL . Alternatively, for the ENABLE-FULL-CONTROL handshake that generates a separate child handshake for each member account, you can specify ParentHandshakeId to see only the handshakes that were generated by that parent request.

Shorthand Syntax:

ActionType=string,ParentHandshakeId=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "ActionType": "INVITE"|"ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES"|"APPROVE_ALL_FEATURES"|"ADD_ORGANIZATIONS_SERVICE_LINKED_ROLE",
  "ParentHandshakeId": "string"
}

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the next-token from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a next-token is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the next-token value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the next-token response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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 retrieve a list of the handshakes sent to an account

The following example shows how to get a list of all handshakes that are associated with the account of the credentials that were used to call the operation:

Output

Handshakes -> (list)

A list of Handshake objects with details about each of the handshakes that is associated with the specified account.

(structure)

Contains information that must be exchanged to securely establish a relationship between two accounts (an originator and a recipient ). For example, when a master account (the originator) invites another account (the recipient) to join its organization, the two accounts exchange information as a series of handshake requests and responses.

Note: Handshakes that are CANCELED, ACCEPTED, or DECLINED show up in lists for only 30 days after entering that state After that they are deleted.

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)

The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

Type -> (string)

The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

  • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
  • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
  • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.
  • OWNER_EMAIL - Specifies the email address associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
  • OWNER_NAME - Specifies the name associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
  • NOTES - Additional text provided by the handshake initiator and intended for the recipient to read.

Resources -> (list)

When needed, contains an additional array of HandshakeResource objects.

(structure)

Contains additional data that is needed to process a handshake.

Value -> (string)

The information that is passed to the other party in the handshake. The format of the value string must match the requirements of the specified type.

Type -> (string)

The type of information being passed, specifying how the value is to be interpreted by the other party:

  • ACCOUNT - Specifies an AWS account ID number.
  • ORGANIZATION - Specifies an organization ID number.
  • EMAIL - Specifies the email address that is associated with the account that receives the handshake.
  • OWNER_EMAIL - Specifies the email address associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
  • OWNER_NAME - Specifies the name associated with the master account. Included as information about an organization.
  • NOTES - Additional text provided by the handshake initiator and intended for the recipient to read.

NextToken -> (string)

If present, this value indicates that there is more output available than is included in the current response. Use this value in the next-token request parameter in a subsequent call to the operation to get the next part of the output. You should repeat this until the next-token response element comes back as null .
