get started with
AWS Organizations


I want to use AWS Organizations to administer and pay bills for other AWS accounts. How do I do that?

First, enable AWS Organizations for your account. Then, add other AWS accounts to your organization.

Enable AWS Organizations for your account

  1. Open the AWS Management Console, and then choose your account name from the navigation bar.
  2. Choose My Organization.
  3. Choose Create Organization.
  4. Choose Enable all features or Enable only consolidated billing.
    Note: For more information about Organizations features, see Enabling All Features in Your Organization.
  5. Choose Create.

Add accounts to your organization

You can create a new member account or invite an existing AWS account to be a member account in your organization.

Apply service control policies (SCPs) to any account in your organization to manage the level of access and permissions for each account.
