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 NextToken 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 NextToken response parameter value is null only when there are no more results to display.

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

See also: AWS API Documentation

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

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 lowercase 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 lowercase letters or digits (the ID of the root that the OU is in). This string is followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lowercase letters or digits.

--filter (string)

The type of policy that you want to include in the returned list. You must specify one of the following values:

Possible values:

  • SERVICE_CONTROL_POLICY
  • TAG_POLICY
  • BACKUP_POLICY
  • AISERVICES_OPT_OUT_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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken 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 NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken 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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

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 DescribePolicy .

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 lowercase or uppercase letters, digits, or the underscore character (_).

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 Amazon Web Services Service Authorization Reference .

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 Amazon Web Services managed policy. If true, then you can attach the policy to roots, OUs, or accounts, but you cannot edit it.

NextToken -> (string)

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