Description

This action is available if all of the following are true:

AWS Organizations automatically creates the required service-linked role named AWSServiceRoleForOrganizations. For more information, see AWS Organizations and Service-Linked Roles in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

AWS automatically enables AWS CloudTrail for AWS GovCloud (US) accounts, but you should also do the following:

If the request includes tags, then the requester must have the organizations:TagResource permission. The tags are attached to the commercial account associated with the GovCloud account, rather than the GovCloud account itself. To add tags to the GovCloud account, call the tag_resource operation in the GovCloud Region after the new GovCloud account exists.

You call this action from the management account of your organization in the commercial Region to create a standalone AWS account in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. After the account is created, the management account of an organization in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region can invite it to that organization. For more information on inviting standalone accounts in the AWS GovCloud (US) to join an organization, see AWS Organizations in the AWS GovCloud User Guide.

Calling create_gov_cloud_account is an asynchronous request that AWS performs in the background. Because create_gov_cloud_account operates asynchronously, it can return a successful completion message even though account initialization might still be in progress. You might need to wait a few minutes before you can successfully access the account. To check the status of the request, do one of the following:

When you call the create_gov_cloud_account action, you create two accounts: a standalone account in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region and an associated account in the commercial Region for billing and support purposes. The account in the commercial Region is automatically a member of the organization whose credentials made the request. Both accounts are associated with the same email address.

A role is created in the new account in the commercial Region that allows the management account in the organization in the commercial Region to assume it. An AWS GovCloud (US) account is then created and associated with the commercial account that you just created. A role is also created in the new AWS GovCloud (US) account that can be assumed by the AWS GovCloud (US) account that is associated with the management account of the commercial organization. For more information and to view a diagram that explains how account access works, see AWS Organizations in the AWS GovCloud User Guide.

For more information about creating accounts, see Creating an AWS Account in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

When you create a member account with this operation, you can choose whether to create the account with the IAM User and Role Access to Billing Information switch enabled. If you enable it, IAM users and roles that have appropriate permissions can view billing information for the account. If you disable it, only the account root user can access billing information. For information about how to disable this switch for an account, see Granting Access to Your Billing Information and Tools.

Usage

organizations_create_gov_cloud_account(Email, AccountName, RoleName,
  IamUserAccessToBilling, Tags)

Arguments

Email

[required] The email address of the owner to assign to the new member account in the commercial Region. This email address must not already be associated with another AWS account. You must use a valid email address to complete account creation. You can't access the root user of the account or remove an account that was created with an invalid email address. Like all request parameters for create_gov_cloud_account, the request for the email address for the AWS GovCloud (US) account originates from the commercial Region, not from the AWS GovCloud (US) Region.

AccountName

[required] The friendly name of the member account.

RoleName

(Optional)

The name of an IAM role that AWS Organizations automatically preconfigures in the new member accounts in both the AWS GovCloud (US) Region and in the commercial Region. This role trusts the management account, allowing users in the management account to assume the role, as permitted by the management account administrator. The role has administrator permissions in the new member account.

If you don't specify this parameter, the role name defaults to OrganizationAccountAccessRole.

For more information about how to use this role to access the member account, see Accessing and Administering the Member Accounts in Your Organization in the AWS Organizations User Guide and steps 2 and 3 in Tutorial: Delegate Access Across AWS Accounts Using IAM Roles in the IAM User Guide.

The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter. The pattern can include uppercase letters, lowercase letters, digits with no spaces, and any of the following characters: =,.@-

IamUserAccessToBilling

If set to ALLOW, the new linked account in the commercial Region enables IAM users to access account billing information if they have the required permissions. If set to DENY, only the root user of the new account can access account billing information. For more information, see Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

If you don't specify this parameter, the value defaults to ALLOW, and IAM users and roles with the required permissions can access billing information for the new account.

Tags

A list of tags that you want to attach to the newly created account. These tags are attached to the commercial account associated with the GovCloud account, and not to the GovCloud account itself. To add tags to the actual GovCloud account, call the tag_resource operation in the GovCloud region after the new GovCloud account exists.

For each tag in the list, you must specify both a tag key and a value. You can set the value to an empty string, but you can't set it to null. For more information about tagging, see Tagging AWS Organizations resources in the AWS Organizations User Guide.

If any one of the tags is invalid or if you exceed the allowed number of tags for an account, then the entire request fails and the account is not created.
