[ aws . ram ]



Enables resource sharing within your organization in Organizations. Calling this operation enables RAM to retrieve information about the organization and its structure. This lets you share resources with all of the accounts in an organization by specifying the organization's ID, or all of the accounts in an organizational unit (OU) by specifying the OU's ID. Until you enable sharing within the organization, you can specify only individual Amazon Web Services accounts, or for supported resource types, IAM users and roles.

You must call this operation from an IAM user or role in the organization's management account.

[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--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.

--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.
