list-targets-for-policy

Description

Lists all the roots, organizaitonal units (OUs), and accounts to which the specified policy is attached.

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-targets-for-policy 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: Targets

Synopsis

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

Options

--policy-id (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the policy for which you want to know its attachments.

The regex pattern for a policy ID string requires "p-" followed by from 8 to 128 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.

--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 roots, OUs, and accounts that a policy is attached to

The following example shows how to get a list of the roots, OUs, and accounts that the specified policy is attached to:

aws organizations list-targets-for-policy --policy-id p-FullAWSAccess

The output includes a list of attachment objects with summary information about the roots, OUs, and accounts the policy is attached to:

{
        "Targets": [
                {
                        "Arn": "arn:aws:organizations::111111111111:root/o-exampleorgid/r-examplerootid111",
                        "Name": "Root",
                        "TargetId":"r-examplerootid111",
                        "Type":"ROOT"
                },
                {
                        "Arn": "arn:aws:organizations::111111111111:account/o-exampleorgid/333333333333;",
                        "Name": "Developer Test Account",
                        "TargetId": "333333333333",
                        "Type": "ACCOUNT"
                },
                {
                        "Arn":"arn:aws:organizations::111111111111:ou/o-exampleorgid/ou-examplerootid111-exampleouid111",
                        "Name":"Accounting",
                        "TargetId":"ou-examplerootid111-exampleouid111",
                        "Type":"ORGANIZATIONAL_UNIT"
                }
        ]
}

Output

Targets -> (list)

A list of structures, each of which contains details about one of the entities to which the specified policy is attached.

(structure)

Contains information about a root, OU, or account that a policy is attached to.

TargetId -> (string)

The unique identifier (ID) of the policy target.

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.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the policy target.

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 target.

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

Type -> (string)

The type of the policy target.

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 .
