Container for the parameters to the EnablePolicyType operation. Enables a policy type in a root. After you enable a policy type in a root, you can attach policies of that type to the root, any organizational unit (OU), or account in that root. You can undo this by using the DisablePolicyType operation.

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

You can enable a policy type in a root only if that policy type is available in the organization. Use DescribeOrganization to view the status of available policy types in the organization.

To view the status of policy type in a root, use ListRoots.
