Container for the parameters to the EnableAllFeatures operation. Enables all features in an organization. This enables the use of organization policies that can restrict the services and actions that can be called in each account. Until you enable all features, you have access only to consolidated billing, and you can't use any of the advanced account administration features that AWS Organizations supports. For more information, see Enabling All Features in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

This operation is required only for organizations that were created explicitly with only the consolidated billing features enabled. Calling this operation sends a handshake to every invited account in the organization. The feature set change can be finalized and the additional features enabled only after all administrators in the invited accounts approve the change by accepting the handshake.

After you enable all features, you can separately enable or disable individual policy types in a root using EnablePolicyType and DisablePolicyType. To see the status of policy types in a root, use ListRoots.

After all invited member accounts accept the handshake, you finalize the feature set change by accepting the handshake that contains "Action": "ENABLE_ALL_FEATURES". This completes the change.

After you enable all features in your organization, the master account in the organization can apply policies on all member accounts. These policies can restrict what users and even administrators in those accounts can do. The master account can apply policies that prevent accounts from leaving the organization. Ensure that your account administrators are aware of this.

This operation can be called only from the organization's master account.

This example shows the administrator asking all the invited accounts in the organization to approve enabling all features in the organization. AWS Organizations sends an email to the address that is registered with every invited member account asking the owner to approve the change by accepting the handshake that is sent. After all invited member accounts accept the handshake, the organization administrator can finalize the change to enable all features, and those with appropriate permissions can create policies and apply them to roots, OUs, and accounts:/n/n

To enable all features in an organization

Handshake handshake = response.Handshake;
