Manage WorkSpaces Users

Each WorkSpace is assigned to a single user and cannot be shared by multiple users. Whenever you launch a WorkSpace, you must assign it to a user that does not already have a WorkSpace.

As an administrator for Amazon WorkSpaces, you can use the Amazon WorkSpaces console to perform the following tasks to manage WorkSpaces users.

Edit User Information

You can use the Amazon WorkSpaces console to edit the user information for a WorkSpace.
