Update a resource data sync. After you create a resource data sync for a Region, you can't change the account options for that sync. For example, if you create a sync in the us-east-2 (Ohio) Region and you choose the Include only the current account option, you can't edit that sync later and choose the Include all accounts from my Organizations configuration option. Instead, you must delete the first resource data sync, and create a new one.


This API operation only supports a resource data sync that was created with a SyncFromSource SyncType .

--sync-name (string)

The name of the resource data sync you want to update.

--sync-type (string)

The type of resource data sync. The supported SyncType is SyncFromSource.

--sync-source (structure)

Specify information about the data sources to synchronize.

SourceType -> (string)

The type of data source for the resource data sync. SourceType is either AwsOrganizations (if an organization is present in Organizations) or SingleAccountMultiRegions .

AwsOrganizationsSource -> (structure)

Information about the AwsOrganizationsSource resource data sync source. A sync source of this type can synchronize data from Organizations.

OrganizationSourceType -> (string)

If an Amazon Web Services organization is present, this is either OrganizationalUnits or EntireOrganization . For OrganizationalUnits , the data is aggregated from a set of organization units. For EntireOrganization , the data is aggregated from the entire Amazon Web Services organization.

OrganizationalUnits -> (list)

The Organizations organization units included in the sync.


The Organizations organizational unit data source for the sync.

OrganizationalUnitId -> (string)

The Organizations unit ID data source for the sync.

SourceRegions -> (list)

The SyncSource Amazon Web Services Regions included in the resource data sync.


IncludeFutureRegions -> (boolean)

Whether to automatically synchronize and aggregate data from new Amazon Web Services Regions when those Regions come online.

EnableAllOpsDataSources -> (boolean)

When you create a resource data sync, if you choose one of the Organizations options, then Systems Manager automatically enables all OpsData sources in the selected Amazon Web Services Regions for all Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization (or in the selected organization units).

--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.

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To update a resource data sync

The following update-resource-data-sync example updates a SyncFromSource resource data sync.

aws ssm update-resource-data-sync \
    --sync-name exampleSync \
    --sync-type SyncFromSource \
    --sync-source '{"SourceType":"SingleAccountMultiRegions", "SourceRegions":["us-east-1", "us-west-2"]}'

This command produces no output.
