Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Roots (list) –

      A list of roots that are defined in an organization.

      • (dict) –

        Contains details about a root. A root is a top-level parent node in the hierarchy of an organization that can contain organizational units (OUs) and accounts. The root contains every Amazon Web Services account in the organization.

        • Id (string) –

          The unique identifier (ID) for the root. The ID is unique to the organization only.

          The regex pattern for a root ID string requires “r-” followed by from 4 to 32 lowercase letters or digits.

        • Arn (string) –

          The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the root.

          For more information about ARNs in Organizations, see ARN Formats Supported by Organizations in the Amazon Web Services Service Authorization Reference.

        • Name (string) –

          The friendly name of the root.

          The regex pattern that is used to validate this parameter is a string of any of the characters in the ASCII character range.

        • PolicyTypes (list) –

          The types of policies that are currently enabled for the root and therefore can be attached to the root or to its OUs or accounts.


          Even if a policy type is shown as available in the organization, you can separately enable and disable them at the root level by using EnablePolicyType and DisablePolicyType. Use DescribeOrganization to see the availability of the policy types in that organization.

          • (dict) –

            Contains information about a policy type and its status in the associated root.

            • Type (string) –

              The name of the policy type.

            • Status (string) –

              The status of the policy type as it relates to the associated root. To attach a policy of the specified type to a root or to an OU or account in that root, it must be available in the organization and enabled for that root.
