AWS Control Tower introduces an API to discover landing zone operations

Posted on: Jun 26, 2024

AWS Control Tower customers can now programmatically retrieve a list of all landing zone operations that have completed in the past 90 days including create, update, reset, and delete. The output contains summary information like the operation identifier, operation type, and status to help identify initiated operations.

Until today, customers could only retrieve landing zone operations if they requested it by operation identifier or examined all operations. API users on the same team could not view operations performed by others in the same landing zone, resulting in lost context and reduced visibility into all operations. Now customers can easily view, audit and troubleshoot operations for their entire landing zone to avoid duplicate operations and improve overall operational efficiency.

To learn more about these APIs, review configurations for landing zone APIs and API References in the AWS Control Tower User Guide. The new APIs are available in AWS Regions where AWS Control Tower is available. For a list of AWS Regions where AWS Control Tower is available, see the AWS Region Table.
