EnableHealthServiceAccessForOrganization - AWS Health


Enables AWS Health to work with AWS Organizations. You can use the organizational view feature to aggregate events from all AWS accounts in your organization in a centralized location.

This operation also creates a service-linked role for the management account in the organization.


To call this operation, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan from AWS Support to use the AWS Health API. If you call the AWS Health API from an AWS account that doesn't have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan, you receive a SubscriptionRequiredException error.

  • You must have permission to call this operation from the organization's management account. For example IAM policies, see AWS Health identity-based policy examples.

If you don't have the required support plan, you can instead use the AWS Health console to enable the organizational view feature. For more information, see Aggregating AWS Health events in the AWS Health User Guide.
