Container for the parameters to the InviteAccountToOrganization operation. Sends an invitation to another account to join your organization as a member account. Organizations sends email on your behalf to the email address that is associated with the other account's owner. The invitation is implemented as a Handshake whose details are in the response.

You can invite AWS accounts only from the same seller as the master account. For example, if your organization's master account was created by Amazon Internet Services Pvt. Ltd (AISPL), an AWS seller in India, then you can only invite other AISPL accounts to your organization. You can't combine accounts from AISPL and AWS, or any other AWS seller. For more information, see Consolidated Billing in India.

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

If you get an exception that indicates that you exceeded your account limits for the organization or that you can"t add an account because your organization is still initializing, please contact AWS Customer Support.
