Today, we are making it easier for customers to view and manage enabled and disabled opt-in AWS Regions on their AWS accounts using the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) and AWS Software Development Kit (SDK). We previously released the Accounts SDK that enables customers to programmatically manage both primary and alternate contact information for their accounts. Starting today, customers can use the same SDK to additionally enable and disable opt-in AWS Regions, saving them the time and effort of doing it through the AWS Management Console.

Additionally, for customers using AWS Organizations, Organization administrators can now centrally manage the status of opt-in AWS Regions for all member accounts using the management account.

The ability to enable and disable opt-in AWS Regions on AWS accounts is available at no additional charge in all commercial AWS Regions. To learn more about account management, see the documentation.
