ServiceSetting is an account-level setting for an Amazon Web Services service. This setting defines how a user interacts with or uses a service or a feature of a service. For example, if an Amazon Web Services service charges money to the account based on feature or service usage, then the Amazon Web Services service team might create a default setting of "false". This means the user can't use this feature unless they change the setting to "true" and intentionally opt in for a paid feature.

Services map a SettingId object to a setting value. Amazon Web Services services teams define the default value for a SettingId . You can't create a new SettingId , but you can overwrite the default value if you have the ssm:UpdateServiceSetting permission for the setting. Use the GetServiceSetting API operation to view the current value. Use the UpdateServiceSetting API operation to change the default setting.

Reset the service setting for the account to the default value as provisioned by the Amazon Web Services service team.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


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


--setting-id (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the service setting to reset. The setting ID can be one of the following.

  • /ssm/automation/customer-script-log-destination
  • /ssm/automation/customer-script-log-group-name
  • /ssm/documents/console/public-sharing-permission
  • /ssm/parameter-store/default-parameter-tier
  • /ssm/parameter-store/high-throughput-enabled
  • /ssm/managed-instance/activation-tier

--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.
