list-policies-for-target

Description

Lists the policies that are directly attached to the specified target root, organizational unit (OU), or account. You must specify the policy type that you want included in the returned list.

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 only from the organization's master account.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-policies-for-target 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: Policies

Synopsis

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

Options

--target-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the root, organizational unit, or account whose policies you want to list.

The regex pattern for a target ID string requires one of the following:

  • Root: a string that begins with "r-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits.
  • Account: a string that consists of exactly 12 digits.
  • Organizational unit (OU): a string that begins with "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lower-case letters or digits (the ID of the root that the OU is in) followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lower-case letters or digits.

--filter (string)

The type of policy that you want to include in the returned list.

Possible values:

  • SERVICE_CONTROL_POLICY

--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 SCPs attached directly to an account

The following example shows how to get a list of all service control policies (SCPs), as specified by the Filter parameter, that are directly attached to an account:

aws organizations list-policies-for-target --filter SERVICE_CONTROL_POLICY --target-id 444444444444

The output includes a list of policy structures with summary information about the policies. The list does not include policies that apply to the account because of inheritance from its location in an OU hierarchy:

{
        "Policies": [
                {
                        "Type": "SERVICE_CONTROL_POLICY",
                        "Name": "AllowAllEC2Actions",
                        "AwsManaged", false,
                        "Id": "p-examplepolicyid222",
                        "Arn": "arn:aws:organizations::o-exampleorgid:policy/service_control_policy/p-examplepolicyid222",
                        "Description": "Enables account admins to delegate permissions for any EC2 actions to users and roles in their accounts."
                }
        ]
}

Output

Policies -> (list)

The list of policies that match the criteria in the request.

(structure)

Contains information about a policy, but does not include the content. To see the content of a policy, see describe-policy .

Id -> (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the policy.

The regex pattern for a policy ID string requires "p-" followed by from 8 to 128 lower-case letters or digits.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the policy.

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

Name -> (string)

The friendly name of the policy.

The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of any of the characters in the ASCII character range.

Description -> (string)

The description of the policy.

Type -> (string)

The type of policy.

AwsManaged -> (boolean)

A boolean value that indicates whether the specified policy is an AWS managed policy. If true, then you can attach the policy to roots, OUs, or accounts, but you cannot edit it.

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 .
