Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • Workforce (dict) –

      A single private workforce, which is automatically created when you create your first private work team. You can create one private work force in each Amazon Web Services Region. By default, any workforce-related API operation used in a specific region will apply to the workforce created in that region. To learn how to create a private workforce, see Create a Private Workforce.

      • WorkforceName (string) –

        The name of the private workforce.

      • WorkforceArn (string) –

        The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the private workforce.

        The most recent date that UpdateWorkforce was used to successfully add one or more IP address ranges ( CIDRs) to a private workforce’s allow list.

      • SourceIpConfig (dict) –

        A list of one to ten IP address ranges ( CIDRs) to be added to the workforce allow list. By default, a workforce isn’t restricted to specific IP addresses.

        • Cidrs (list) –
