aws organizations create-organizational-unit

Creates an organizational unit (OU) within a root or parent OU. An OU is a container for accounts that enables you to organize your accounts to apply policies according to your business requirements. The number of levels deep that you can nest OUs is dependent upon the policy types enabled for that root. For service control policies, the limit is five. For more information about OUs, see Managing Organizational Units in the AWS Organizations User Guide. If the request includes tags, then the requester must have the organizations:TagResource permission. This operation can be called only from the organization's management account


--parent-id <string>The unique identifier (ID) of the parent root or OU that you want to create the new OU in. The regex pattern for a parent ID string requires one of the following: Root - A string that begins with "r-" followed by from 4 to 32 lowercase letters or digits. Organizational unit (OU) - A string that begins with "ou-" followed by from 4 to 32 lowercase letters or digits (the ID of the root that the OU is in). This string is followed by a second "-" dash and from 8 to 32 additional lowercase letters or digits
--name <string>The friendly name to assign to the new OU
--tags <list>A list of tags that you want to attach to the newly created OU. 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 OU, then the entire request fails and the OU is not created
--cli-input-json <string>Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by ``--generate-cli-skeleton``. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally
--generate-cli-skeleton <string>Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value ``input``, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for ``--cli-input-json``. If provided with the value ``output``, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command
