invite-members

Description

Invites other AWS accounts to become member accounts for the Security Hub master account that the invitation is sent from.

Before you can use this action to invite a member, you must first use the `` CreateMembers `` action to create the member account in Security Hub.

When the account owner accepts the invitation to become a member account and enables Security Hub, the master account can view the findings generated from the member account.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  invite-members
[--account-ids <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--account-ids (list)

The list of account IDs of the AWS accounts to invite to Security Hub as members.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--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.
