You can attach tags to the following resources in AWS Organizations.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-tags-for-resource 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: Tags

Synopsis

  list-tags-for-resource
--resource-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-id (string)

The ID of the resource with the tags to list.

You can specify any of the following taggable resources.

  • AWS account – specify the account ID number.
  • Organizational unit – specify the OU ID that begins with ou- and looks similar to: ``ou-1a2b-34uvwxyz ``
  • Root – specify the root ID that begins with r- and looks similar to: ``r-1a2b ``
  • Policy – specify the policy ID that begins with p- andlooks similar to: ``p-12abcdefg3 ``

--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 .

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

Tags -> (list)

The tags that are assigned to the resource.

(structure)

A custom key-value pair associated with a resource within your organization.

You can attach tags to any of the following organization resources.

  • AWS account
  • Organizational unit (OU)
  • Organization root
  • Policy

Key -> (string)

The key identifier, or name, of the tag.

Value -> (string)

The string value that's associated with the key of the tag. You can set the value of a tag to an empty string, but you can't set the value of a tag to null.

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 .
