Why don't I see any of my AWS resources after signing in to my AWS account?

Last updated: 2020-09-01

I signed in to my AWS account, but none of my resources are visible in the console. I know that these resources are still provisioned to my account. Why can’t I see them?

Resolution

Here are a few common reasons that you might not see all your resources in the console:

You accidentally signed in to a different account

If you have more than one AWS account, sign in to the other account, and then check for your resources.

The resources are in a different AWS Region

Most AWS resources are located in a specific geographical region, and the console displays only one Region at a time for those services. Be sure that you’re viewing the AWS Region that your resources are in.

You don't have permissions to view those resources

Update your IAM policy to allow access to view those resources, or ask your account administrator to update your IAM policy for you.
