Today, we are announcing new functionality in AWS Control Tower that provides you the ability to customize your landing zone naming. You can retain the names that AWS Control Tower recommends for the organizational units (OUs) and core accounts, or you can modify these names during the initial landing zone set up process.
AWS Control Tower provides default names for the OUs and core accounts that match the AWS multi-account best practices guidance. However, if your company has specific naming policies, or if you already have an existing OU or account with the recommended name, the new OU and Account naming functionality gives you the flexibility to address those constraints.
It’s easy to get started with AWS Control Tower. From the AWS Management Console, go to the AWS Control Tower console, and select ‘Set up landing zone’ in the top right. For additional information you can also read about planning your AWS Control Tower landing zone.
