API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Container for the parameters to the CreateOrganization operation. Creates an AWS organization. The account whose user is calling the CreateOrganization operation automatically becomes the master account of the new organization.

This operation must be called using credentials from the account that is to become the new organization's master account. The principal must also have the relevant IAM permissions.

By default (or if you set the FeatureSet parameter to ALL), the new organization is created with all features enabled and service control policies automatically enabled in the root. If you instead choose to create the organization supporting only the consolidated billing features by setting the FeatureSet parameter to CONSOLIDATED_BILLING", then no policy types are enabled by default and you cannot use organization policies.

Specifies the feature set supported by the new organization. Each feature set supports different levels of functionality.

  • CONSOLIDATED_BILLING: All member accounts have their bills consolidated to and paid by the master account. For more information, see Consolidated Billing in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

Bill wants to create an organization using credentials from account 111111111111. The following example shows that the account becomes the master account in the new organization. Because he does not specify a feature set, the new organization defaults to all features enabled and service control policies enabled on the root:

To create a new organization with all features enabled

var response = client.CreateOrganization(new CreateOrganizationRequest 

Organization organization = response.Organization;


In the following example, Bill creates an organization using credentials from account 111111111111, and configures the organization to support only the consolidated billing feature set:

To create a new organization with consolidated billing features only

var response = client.CreateOrganization(new CreateOrganizationRequest 

Organization organization = response.Organization;
