Today, AWS announces the general availability of multi-account search for AWS Resource Explorer. Now, you can search for and discover resources such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, Amazon Kinesis streams, and Amazon DynamoDB tables across regions and across accounts in your organization using AWS Organizations. Multi-account search in Resource Explorer is available at no additional charge.

In just minutes, you can turn on and configure Resource Explorer for your entire organization or a specific organizational unit. Once configured, you can assign a delegated administrator and create a multi-account view to control who can access what resource information in Resource Explorer. You can search this view with simple freeform text and filters to find relevant AWS resources across AWS Regions and accounts. Multi-account search is available in the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or SDKs. For example, you can use the Resource Explorer console to locate a resource quickly, navigate to the appropriate account and service, and take action.

Resource Explorer is generally available in US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo).
