[ aws . ssm ]



ServiceSetting is an account-level setting for an AWS service. This setting defines how a user interacts with or uses a service or a feature of a service. For example, if an AWS service charges money to the account based on feature or service usage, then the AWS service team might create a default setting of “false”. This means the user can’t use this feature unless they change the setting to “true” and intentionally opt in for a paid feature.

Services map a SettingId object to a setting value. AWS services teams define the default value for a SettingId . You can’t create a new SettingId , but you can overwrite the default value if you have the ssm:UpdateServiceSetting permission for the setting. Use the UpdateServiceSetting API action to change the default setting. Or use the ResetServiceSetting to change the value back to the original value defined by the AWS service team.

Query the current service setting for the account.

--setting-id <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--setting-id (string)

The ID of the service setting to get. The setting ID can be /ssm/automation/customer-script-log-destination , /ssm/automation/customer-script-log-group-name , /ssm/parameter-store/default-parameter-tier , /ssm/parameter-store/high-throughput-enabled , or /ssm/managed-instance/activation-tier .

--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.
