Returns detailed information about one or more specified events for one or more Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization. This information includes standard event data (such as the Amazon Web Services Region and service), an event description, and (depending on the event) possible metadata. This operation doesn't return affected entities, such as the resources related to the event. To return affected entities, use the DescribeAffectedEntitiesForOrganization
Before you can call this operation, you must first enable Health to work with Organizations. To do this, call the EnableHealthServiceAccessForOrganization
operation from your organization's management account.
When you call the
operation, specify the
object in the request. Depending on the Health event type, note the following differences:
- To return event details for a public event, you must specify a null value for the
awsAccountId parameter. If you specify an account ID for a public event, Health returns an error message because public events aren't specific to an account.
- To return event details for an event that is specific to an account in your organization, you must specify the
awsAccountId parameter in the request. If you don't specify an account ID, Health returns an error message because the event is specific to an account in your organization.

This operation doesn't support resource-level permissions. You can't use this operation to allow or deny access to specific Health events. For more information, see Resource- and action-based conditions
in the Health User Guide
