AcceptResourceShareInvitation - AWS RAM


Accepts an invitation to a resource share from another AWS account. After you accept the invitation, the resources included in the resource share are available to interact with in the relevant AWS Management Consoles and tools.

Request Syntax

POST /acceptresourceshareinvitation HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "resourceShareInvitationArn": "string" }

URI Request Parameters

The request does not use any URI parameters.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.


The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the invitation that you want to accept.

Type: String

Required: Yes


Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value..

If you don't provide this value, then AWS generates a random one for you.

If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken, but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

Type: String

Required: No

Response Syntax

HTTP/1.1 200 Content-type: application/json { "clientToken": "string", "resourceShareInvitation": { "invitationTimestamp": number, "receiverAccountId": "string", "receiverArn": "string", "resourceShareArn": "string", "resourceShareAssociations": [ { "associatedEntity": "string", "associationType": "string", "creationTime": number, "external": boolean, "lastUpdatedTime": number, "resourceShareArn": "string", "resourceShareName": "string", "status": "string", "statusMessage": "string" } ], "resourceShareInvitationArn": "string", "resourceShareName": "string", "senderAccountId": "string", "status": "string" } }

Response Elements

If the action is successful, the service sends back an HTTP 200 response.

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.


The idempotency identifier associated with this request. If you want to repeat the same operation in an idempotent manner then you must include this value in the clientToken request parameter of that later call. All other parameters must also have the same values that you used in the first call.

Type: String


An object that contains information about the specified invitation.

Type: ResourceShareInvitation object
