PutConfigurationAggregator - AWS Config


Creates and updates the configuration aggregator with the selected source accounts and regions. The source account can be individual account(s) or an organization.

accountIds that are passed will be replaced with existing accounts. If you want to add additional accounts into the aggregator, call DescribeConfigurationAggregators to get the previous accounts and then append new ones.


AWS Config should be enabled in source accounts and regions you want to aggregate.

If your source type is an organization, you must be signed in to the management account or a registered delegated administrator and all the features must be enabled in your organization. If the caller is a management account, AWS Config calls EnableAwsServiceAccess API to enable integration between AWS Config and AWS Organizations. If the caller is a registered delegated administrator, AWS Config calls ListDelegatedAdministrators API to verify whether the caller is a valid delegated administrator.

To register a delegated administrator, see Register a Delegated Administrator in the AWS Config developer guide.


PutConfigurationAggregator is an idempotent API. Subsequent requests won’t create a duplicate resource if one was already created. If a following request has different tags values, AWS Config will ignore these differences and treat it as an idempotent request of the previous. In this case, tags will not be updated, even if they are different.

HTTP Status Code: 400


You have provided a null or empty Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the IAM role assumed by AWS Config and used by the configuration recorder.

HTTP Status Code: 400


For StartConfigRulesEvaluation API, this exception is thrown if an evaluation is in progress or if you call the StartConfigRulesEvaluation API more than once per minute.

For PutConfigurationAggregator API, this exception is thrown if the number of accounts and aggregators exceeds the limit.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Organization is no longer available.

HTTP Status Code: 400


For PutConfigurationAggregator API, you can see this exception for the following reasons:

  • No permission to call EnableAWSServiceAccess API

  • The configuration aggregator cannot be updated because your AWS Organization management account or the delegated administrator role changed. Delete this aggregator and create a new one with the current AWS Organization.

  • The configuration aggregator is associated with a previous AWS Organization and AWS Config cannot aggregate data with current AWS Organization. Delete this aggregator and create a new one with the current AWS Organization.

  • You are not a registered delegated administrator for AWS Config with permissions to call ListDelegatedAdministrators API. Ensure that the management account registers delagated administrator for AWS Config service principle name before the delegated administrator creates an aggregator.

For all OrganizationConfigRule and OrganizationConformancePack APIs, AWS Config throws an exception if APIs are called from member accounts. All APIs must be called from organization management account.

HTTP Status Code: 400
