For customers using AWS Organizations, the AWS Personal Health Dashboard now provides an all-up view of Health events occurring across your organization. From a single aggregated dashboard, you can learn about maintenance events, security vulnerabilities, and AWS service degredations affecting any account in your AWS organization. Organizational View for the Personal Health Dashboard comes at no additional cost and does not require a premium AWS Support plan. 

A user signed into the management account can enable Organizational View with a few clicks on the Personal Health Dashboard. This provides the management account with access to a new aggregated dashboard, which displays all Health events occurring across the organization. You can drill down to see detailed event descriptions, the affected accounts, and the organizational units they belong to. You can also filter events down to specific accounts, regions, and services that matter most to your organization.  

Although the Personal Health Dashboard provides an out-of-the box user interface for an organizational-wide view, you can also integrate the same information into your preferred tooling using the AWS Health API. For example, you can ingest organization-wide Health events into a chat application, or visualize with Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES). The Health API is available only to customers subscribed to a premium AWS Support plan.

Personal Health Dashboard provides alerts and remediation guidance when AWS is experiencing events that may impact you. While the Service Health Dashboard displays the general status of AWS services, Personal Health Dashboard gives you a personalized view into the performance and availability of the AWS services powering your AWS resources.
