You can now centrally close member accounts in your AWS Organizations through the console and programmatically via the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) and SDK. This feature makes it easier and more efficient for you to manage your Amazon Web Services workloads by enabling you to close member accounts from your organization’s management account without needing to login to each member account individually. You can also use IAM permissions to authorize IAM roles or users in your management account to securely perform account closures while protecting mission-critical accounts in your infrastructure. 

AWS Organizations helps you centrally manage and govern your environment as you grow and scale your AWS resources. Using AWS Organizations, you can programmatically create new accounts, close decommissioned accounts and allocate resources, simplify billing by setting up a single payment method for all of your accounts, create groups of accounts to organize your workflows, and apply policies to these groups for governance. In addition, AWS Organizations is integrated with other AWS services so you can define central configurations, security mechanisms, and resource sharing across accounts in your organization.
