CreateLensShare - AWS Well-Architected Tool

CreateLensShare

Create a lens share.

The owner of a lens can share it with other AWS accounts, IAM users, an organization, and organizational units (OUs) in the same AWS Region. Shared access to a lens is not removed until the lens invitation is deleted.

Note

Disclaimer

By sharing your custom lenses with other AWS accounts, you acknowledge that AWS will make your custom lenses available to those other accounts. Those other accounts may continue to access and use your shared custom lenses even if you delete the custom lenses from your own AWS account or terminate your AWS account.

Request Syntax

POST /lenses/LensAlias/shares HTTP/1.1 Content-type: application/json { "ClientRequestToken": "string", "SharedWith": "string" }

URI Request Parameters

The request uses the following URI parameters.

LensAlias

The alias of the lens.

For AWS official lenses, this is either the lens alias, such as serverless, or the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-west-2::lens/serverless.

For custom lenses, this is the lens ARN, such as arn:aws:wellarchitected:us-east-1:123456789012:lens/my-lens.

Each lens is identified by its LensSummary:LensAlias.

Request Body

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

ClientRequestToken

A unique case-sensitive string used to ensure that this request is idempotent (executes only once).

You should not reuse the same token for other requests. If you retry a request with the same client request token and the same parameters after it has completed successfully, the result of the original request is returned.

Important

This token is listed as required, however, if you do not specify it, the AWS SDKs automatically generate one for you. If you are not using the AWS SDK or the AWS CLI, you must provide this token or the request will fail.
