UpdateOrganizationConfiguration - Amazon GuardDuty


Configures the delegated administrator account with the provided values. You must provide a value for either autoEnableOrganizationMembers or autoEnable, but not both.

Specifying both EKS Runtime Monitoring (EKS_RUNTIME_MONITORING) and Runtime Monitoring (RUNTIME_MONITORING) will cause an error. You can add only one of these two features because Runtime Monitoring already includes the threat detection for Amazon EKS resources. For more information, see Runtime Monitoring.

There might be regional differences because some data sources might not be available in all the AWS Regions where GuardDuty is presently supported. For more information, see Regions and endpoints.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


This parameter has been deprecated.

Represents whether or not to automatically enable member accounts in the organization.

Even though this is still supported, we recommend using AutoEnableOrganizationMembers to achieve the similar results. You must provide a value for either autoEnableOrganizationMembers or autoEnable.

Type: Boolean

Required: No


Indicates the auto-enablement configuration of GuardDuty for the member accounts in the organization. You must provide a value for either autoEnableOrganizationMembers or autoEnable.

Use one of the following configuration values for autoEnableOrganizationMembers:

  • NEW: Indicates that when a new account joins the organization, they will have GuardDuty enabled automatically.

  • ALL: Indicates that all accounts in the organization have GuardDuty enabled automatically. This includes NEW accounts that join the organization and accounts that may have been suspended or removed from the organization in GuardDuty.

    It may take up to 24 hours to update the configuration for all the member accounts.

  • NONE: Indicates that GuardDuty will not be automatically enabled for any account in the organization. The administrator must manage GuardDuty for each account in the organization individually.

    When you update the auto-enable setting from ALL or NEW to NONE, this action doesn't disable the corresponding option for your existing accounts. This configuration will apply to the new accounts that join the organization. After you update the auto-enable settings, no new account will have the corresponding option as enabled.
