[ aws . servicecatalog ]



Shares the specified portfolio with the specified account or organization node. Shares to an organization node can only be created by the master account of an organization or by a delegated administrator. You can share portfolios to an organization, an organizational unit, or a specific account.

Note that if a delegated admin is de-registered, they can no longer create portfolio shares.

AWSOrganizationsAccess must be enabled in order to create a portfolio share to an organization node.

Shorthand Syntax:


JSON Syntax:

  "Value": "string"

--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.
