I'm unable to access a service from the AWS Management Console. I received an error message similar to the following:

  • You are not subscribed to this service
  • The AWS Access Key Id needs a subscription for the service
  • Your service sign-up is almost complete!

Resolve "You are not subscribed to this service" or "The AWS Access Key Id needs a subscription for the service" errors

If you're using an account that was created in or after 2011, then update your account status.

If you're using an account that was created before 2011, then update your pre-2011 account status.

Resolve "Your service sign-up is almost complete!" errors

Finish the account sign-up process.

You might need to provide a valid payment method, verify your account, or choose an AWS Support plan.
