AWS License Manager extends support for delegated administrator to Linux subscriptions discovery and governance capabilities. Using delegated administrator, your management account can give access to another account in your organization to track Linux subscriptions on AWS. Delegated administrator gives you the flexibility to separate subscription management from billing and other central management tasks.

You can configure AWS License Manager in your central payer or management account and pick another AWS account as the delegated administrator. Once the delegated administrator account is configured, you can discover Linux subscriptions across Regions and accounts, and perform governance tasks such as viewing CloudWatch metrics or setting up alarms.

Delegated administrator for Linux subscriptions in AWS License Manager is available in all AWS Regions, except the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions and AWS China Regions. Linux subscriptions, including delegated administrator feature, can now be used in Regions not enabled by default including Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Melbourne), Europe (Milan), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich), Middle East (Bahrain), and Middle East (UAE).

To get started, you can visit the AWS License Manager console and select the Linux subscriptions tab in the left navigation. To learn more, see the Linux subscriptions section in the AWS License Manager User Guide.
