ResetServiceSetting - Amazon Systems Manager
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 (PDF).


ServiceSetting is an account-level setting for an Amazon service. This setting defines how a user interacts with or uses a service or a feature of a service. For example, if an Amazon service charges money to the account based on feature or service usage, then the Amazon service team might create a default setting of "false". This means the user can't use this feature unless they change the setting to "true" and intentionally opt in for a paid feature.

Services map a SettingId object to a setting value. Amazon services teams define the default value for a SettingId. You can't create a new SettingId, but you can overwrite the default value if you have the ssm:UpdateServiceSetting permission for the setting. Use the GetServiceSetting API operation to view the current value. Use the UpdateServiceSetting API operation to change the default setting.

Reset the service setting for the account to the default value as provisioned by the Amazon service team.
