WorkSpaces / Client / register_workspace_directory



Registers the specified directory. This operation is asynchronous and returns before the WorkSpace directory is registered. If this is the first time you are registering a directory, you will need to create the workspaces_DefaultRole role before you can register a directory. For more information, see Creating the workspaces_DefaultRole Role.
