Can I merge multiple AWS accounts together?

Last updated: 2020-11-25

I have resources on multiple AWS accounts, and I want to merge all the resources together under one account.

Resolution

It's not possible to merge multiple AWS accounts together.

However, you can use AWS Organizations to manage multiple AWS accounts, and then combine the billing in one consolidated bill.

You can also transfer some AWS resources between AWS accounts. For example, with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), you can share custom Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) between accounts. This allows you to transfer instances between accounts. Because each AWS service is unique, the way to move resources between accounts varies by service. For more details, see AWS Documentation.
