Syntax

Enable-DSDirectoryShare
-DirectoryId <String>
-ShareTarget_Id <String>
-ShareMethod <ShareMethod>
-ShareNote <String>
-ShareTarget_Type <TargetType>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Shares a specified directory (DirectoryId) in your AWS account (directory owner) with another AWS account (directory consumer). With this operation you can use your directory from any AWS account and from any Amazon VPC within an AWS Region. When you share your AWS Managed Microsoft AD directory, AWS Directory Service creates a shared directory in the directory consumer account. This shared directory contains the metadata to provide access to the directory within the directory owner account. The shared directory is visible in all VPCs in the directory consumer account. The ShareMethod parameter determines whether the specified directory can be shared between AWS accounts inside the same AWS organization (ORGANIZATIONS). It also determines whether you can share the directory with any other AWS account either inside or outside of the organization (HANDSHAKE). The ShareNotes parameter is only used when HANDSHAKE is called, which sends a directory sharing request to the directory consumer.

Parameters

-DirectoryId <String>
Identifier of the AWS Managed Microsoft AD directory that you want to share with other AWS accounts.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the DirectoryId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^DirectoryId' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'SharedDirectoryId'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.DirectoryService.Model.ShareDirectoryResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.DirectoryService.Model.ShareDirectoryResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ShareMethod <ShareMethod>
The method used when sharing a directory to determine whether the directory should be shared within your AWS organization (ORGANIZATIONS) or with any AWS account by sending a directory sharing request (HANDSHAKE).
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ShareNote <String>
A directory share request that is sent by the directory owner to the directory consumer. The request includes a typed message to help the directory consumer administrator determine whether to approve or reject the share invitation.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesShareNotes
-ShareTarget_Id <String>
Identifier of the directory consumer account.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-ShareTarget_Type <TargetType>
Type of identifier to be used in the Id field.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
