Options

--account-id (string)

Specifies the 12 digit account ID number of the Amazon Web Services account that you want to access or modify with this operation.

If you do not specify this parameter, it defaults to the Amazon Web Services account of the identity used to call the operation.

To use this parameter, the caller must be an identity in the organization's management account or a delegated administrator account, and the specified account ID must be a member account in the same organization. The organization must have all features enabled , and the organization must have trusted access enabled for the Account Management service, and optionally a delegated admin account assigned.

Note

The management account can't specify its own AccountId ; it must call the operation in standalone context by not including the AccountId parameter.

To call this operation on an account that is not a member of an organization, then don't specify this parameter, and call the operation using an identity belonging to the account whose contacts you wish to retrieve or modify.

--alternate-contact-type (string)

Specifies which alternate contact you want to retrieve.

Possible values:

  • BILLING
  • OPERATIONS
  • SECURITY

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
