EC2 / Client / disable_snapshot_block_public_access



Disables the block public access for snapshots setting at the account level for the specified Amazon Web Services Region. After you disable block public access for snapshots in a Region, users can publicly share snapshots in that Region.

If block public access is enabled in block-all-sharing mode, and you disable block public access, all snapshots that were previously publicly shared are no longer treated as private and they become publicly accessible again.

For more information, see Block public access for snapshots in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide .
