Key feature

Give autonomy to individual teams or business units to own and govern their data assets by defining the rules that data consumers must follow. Business teams can decide which data to share, define the rules for using that data, and manage access to data, which gives them full visibility to who is using which data for which purpose. 


How can users across my organization gain access to the Amazon DataZone portal?

When initially setting up Amazon DataZone, your administrators will use their AWS credentials to deploy the domain and have the option to enable access for their organization’s users to the root domain through AWS IAM Identity Center for an existing identity provider. Users can then access the Amazon DataZone portal with IAM or SSO credentials, helping them seamlessly access the portal using their familiar enterprise login credentials. After logging in to the portal, users can browse the catalog for data and start their analytics journey.

Does Amazon DataZone support data that crosses AWS accounts?

Data producers can share data from across different accounts that are associated with the Amazon DataZone domain. Data consumers can consume the data in a different AWS account than the published data or when the domain was created.

How does account association work?

Account association requests must be initiated in the AWS account that owns the Amazon DataZone domain. Account association requests can only be accepted by the administrative users of the invited AWS accounts. Amazon DataZone uses AWS Resource Access Manager (AWS RAM) to enable account association.
