[ aws . workmail ]



Registers an existing and disabled user, group, or resource for Amazon WorkMail use by associating a mailbox and calendaring capabilities. It performs no change if the user, group, or resource is enabled and fails if the user, group, or resource is deleted. This operation results in the accumulation of costs. For more information, see Pricing . The equivalent console functionality for this operation is Enable .

Users can either be created by calling the CreateUser API operation or they can be synchronized from your directory. For more information, see DeregisterFromWorkMail .

--organization-id <value>
--entity-id <value>
--email <value>
[--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--organization-id (string)

The identifier for the organization under which the user, group, or resource exists.

--entity-id (string)

The identifier for the user, group, or resource to be updated.

--email (string)

The email for the user, group, or resource to be updated.

--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.

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 .
