DescribeServices - Amazon Web Services Support
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

DescribeServices

Returns the current list of Amazon services and a list of service categories for each service. You then use service names and categories in your CreateCase requests. Each Amazon service has its own set of categories.

The service codes and category codes correspond to the values that appear in the Service and Category lists on the Amazon Web Services Support Center Create Case page. The values in those fields don't necessarily match the service codes and categories returned by the DescribeServices operation. Always use the service codes and categories that the DescribeServices operation returns, so that you have the most recent set of service and category codes.

Note
  • You must have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan to use the Amazon Web Services Support API.

  • If you call the Amazon Web Services Support API from an account that doesn't have a Business, Enterprise On-Ramp, or Enterprise Support plan, the SubscriptionRequiredException error message appears. For information about changing your support plan, see Amazon Web Services Support.
