[ aws . fms ]



Sets the AWS Firewall Manager administrator account. AWS Firewall Manager must be associated with the master account of your AWS organization or associated with a member account that has the appropriate permissions. If the account ID that you submit is not an AWS Organizations master account, AWS Firewall Manager will set the appropriate permissions for the given member account.

The account that you associate with AWS Firewall Manager is called the AWS Firewall Manager administrator account.

--admin-account <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]
[--cli-auto-prompt <value>]


--admin-account (string)

The AWS account ID to associate with AWS Firewall Manager as the AWS Firewall Manager administrator account. This can be an AWS Organizations master account or a member account. For more information about AWS Organizations and master accounts, see Managing the AWS Accounts in Your Organization .

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those 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. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--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. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
