Why can't I post a message to the AWS Forums?

Last updated: 2020-07-02

When I tried to post a message to the AWS Forums, I got this error message: “Your account is not ready for posting messages yet. Please try again later." Why?


You activate your forum account when you sign in to the AWS Forums:

  1. Navigate to the AWS Forums.
  2. Choose Login.
  3. Sign in to your AWS account.
    Note: If you're already signed in, you don't have to do this step.
  4. Enter the following:
    For AWS Nickname, enter the name that you want to display when you post to the AWS Forums.
    For Forum Email, enter the email address that you want to use with the AWS Forums.
  5. Choose Save and continue.

If you recently activated your AWS forum account, you might not be able to post messages for a few hours. Try posting again later.

Messages you type auto-save every few seconds. When you're ready to post, the message is available in the Your Drafts folder.
