The AWS Well-Architected Tool (AWS WA Tool) now offers the ability for customers and AWS Partners to mark individual best practices as not applicable during their workload review.

There are instances where customers and AWS Partners might not need to measure a workload against a specific best practice due to factors such as business needs, or organizational maturity. Now the AWS Well-Architected Tool provides a way to mark those best practices as not applicable, and record why the best practice does not apply. Customers and AWS Partners can also mark best practices as not applicable using the Well-Architected API. 

This feature is available to customers and AWS Partners at no additional charge and is offered in all Regions where the AWS WA Tool is available; US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (N. California, Oregon), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London, Paris, Stockholm), South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai, Hong Kong), and Middle East (Bahrain).
