Register a Directory with Amazon WorkSpaces

To allow Amazon WorkSpaces to use an existing AWS Directory Service directory, you must register it with Amazon WorkSpaces. After you register a directory, you can launch WorkSpaces in the directory.

To register a directory

  1. Open the Amazon WorkSpaces console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/workspaces/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Directories.

  3. Select the directory.

  4. Choose Actions, Register.

  5. For Enable Amazon WorkDocs, choose Yes to register the directory for use with Amazon WorkDocs or No otherwise.

    Note

    This option is only displayed if Amazon WorkDocs is available in the region.

  6. Choose Register. Initially the value of Registered is REGISTERING. After registration is complete, the value is Yes.

When you are finished using the directory with Amazon WorkSpaces, you can deregister it. Note that you must deregister a directory before you can delete it. If you have any Amazon WAM applications assigned to your users, you must remove those assignments before you can delete a directory. For more information, see Removing Application Assignments in the Amazon WAM Administration Guide.
