[ aws . route53domains ]

transfer-domain-to-another-aws-account

Description

Transfers a domain from the current AWS account to another AWS account. Note the following:

Warning

When you transfer a domain from one AWS account to another, Route 53 doesn't transfer the hosted zone that is associated with the domain. DNS resolution isn't affected if the domain and the hosted zone are owned by separate accounts, so transferring the hosted zone is optional. For information about transferring the hosted zone to another AWS account, see Migrating a Hosted Zone to a Different AWS Account in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide .

Use either ListOperations or GetOperationDetail to determine whether the operation succeeded. GetOperationDetail provides additional information, for example, Domain Transfer from Aws Account 111122223333 has been cancelled .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  transfer-domain-to-another-aws-account
--domain-name <value>
--account-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--domain-name (string)

The name of the domain that you want to transfer from the current AWS account to another account.

--account-id (string)

The account ID of the AWS account that you want to transfer the domain to, for example, 111122223333 .

--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.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

OperationId -> (string)

Identifier for tracking the progress of the request. To query the operation status, use GetOperationDetail .

Password -> (string)

To finish transferring a domain to another AWS account, the account that the domain is being transferred to must submit an AcceptDomainTransferFromAnotherAwsAccount request. The request must include the value of the Password element that was returned in the TransferDomainToAnotherAwsAccount response.
