AWS: Allows Enabling and Disabling AWS Regions

This example shows how you might create a policy that allows an administrator to enable and disable the Asia Pacific (Hong Kong) Region (ap-east-1). This policy also grants the necessary permissions to complete this action on the console. This setting appears in the Account settings page in the AWS Management Console. This page includes sensitive account-level information that should be viewed and managed only by account administrators. To use this policy, replace the red italicized text in the example policy with your own information.

To learn more about enabling and disabling AWS Regions, see Managing AWS Regions in the AWS General Reference.
