Can I modify the terms of my EC2 Reserved Instance?

Last updated: 2019-07-26

I purchased an Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance, but I want to modify the attributes of my Reserved Instance contract. How can I do that?


First, check the conditions listed at Requirements and Restrictions for Modification. If your Reserved Instance meets the conditions, you can request to modify the following:

  • Availability Zone
  • Instance type
  • Platform

If your modification request meets the guidelines and you’re ready to request a modification, see Submitting Modification Requests.
