[ aws . ram ]



Adds the specified list of principals and list of resources to a resource share. Principals that already have access to this resource share immediately receive access to the added resources. Newly added principals immediately receive access to the resources shared in this resource share.

--resource-share-arn (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource share that you want to add principals or resources to.

--resource-arns (list)

Specifies a list of Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the resources that you want to share. This can be null if you want to add only principals.



"string" "string" ...

--principals (list)

Specifies a list of principals to whom you want to the resource share. This can be null if you want to add only resources.

What the principals can do with the resources in the share is determined by the RAM permissions that you associate with the resource share. See AssociateResourceSharePermission .

You can include the following values:

  • An Amazon Web Services account ID, for example: 123456789012
  • An Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an organization in Organizations, for example: organizations::123456789012:organization/o-exampleorgid
  • An ARN of an organizational unit (OU) in Organizations, for example: organizations::123456789012:ou/o-exampleorgid/ou-examplerootid-exampleouid123
  • An ARN of an IAM role, for example: iam::123456789012:role/rolename
  • An ARN of an IAM user, for example: iam::123456789012user/username


Not all resource types can be shared with IAM roles and users. For more information, see Sharing with IAM roles and users in the Resource Access Manager User Guide .



"string" "string" ...

--client-token (string)

Specifies a unique, case-sensitive identifier that you provide to ensure the idempotency of the request. This lets you safely retry the request without accidentally performing the same operation a second time. Passing the same value to a later call to an operation requires that you also pass the same value for all other parameters. We recommend that you use a UUID type of value. .

If you don’t provide this value, then Amazon Web Services generates a random one for you.

If you retry the operation with the same ClientToken , but with different parameters, the retry fails with an IdempotentParameterMismatch error.

--sources (list)

Specifies from which source accounts the service principal has access to the resources in this resource share.



"string" "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. The generated JSON skeleton is not stable between versions of the AWS CLI and there are no backwards compatibility guarantees in the JSON skeleton generated.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command’s default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table
  • yaml
  • yaml-stream

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-binary-format (string)

The formatting style to be used for binary blobs. The default format is base64. The base64 format expects binary blobs to be provided as a base64 encoded string. The raw-in-base64-out format preserves compatibility with AWS CLI V1 behavior and binary values must be passed literally. When providing contents from a file that map to a binary blob fileb:// will always be treated as binary and use the file contents directly regardless of the cli-binary-format setting. When using file:// the file contents will need to properly formatted for the configured cli-binary-format.

  • base64
  • raw-in-base64-out

--no-cli-pager (boolean)

Disable cli pager for output.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

--no-cli-auto-prompt (boolean)

Disable automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.



To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal’s quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

Example 1: To associate a resource with a resource share

The following associate-resource-share example adds a license configuration to the specified resource share.

aws ram associate-resource-share \
    --resource-share arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/27d09b4b-5e12-41d1-a4f2-19dedEXAMPLE \
    --resource-arns arn:aws:license-manager:us-west-2:123456789012:license-configuration:lic-36be0485f5ae379cc74cf8e92EXAMPLE

aws ram associate-resource-share \
    --resource-share-arn arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/27d09b4b-5e12-41d1-a4f2-19dedEXAMPLE \
    --principals arn:aws:organizations::123456789012:ou/o-63bEXAMPLE/ou-46xi-rEXAMPLE


    "resourceShareAssociations": [
            "status": "ASSOCIATING",
            "associationType": "PRINCIPAL",
            "associatedEntity": "arn:aws:organizations::123456789012:ou/o-63bEXAMPLE/ou-46xi-rEXAMPLE",
            "external": false,
            "resourceShareArn": "arn:aws:ram:us-west-2:123456789012:resource-share/27d09b4b-5e12-41d1-a4f2-19dedEXAMPLE"

The associated entity. This can be either of the following:

  • For a resource association, this is the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the resource.
  • For principal associations, this is one of the following:
    • The ID of an Amazon Web Services account
    • The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an organization in Organizations
    • The ARN of an organizational unit (OU) in Organizations
    • The ARN of an IAM role
