Sharing Resolver query logging configurations with other AWS accounts - Amazon Route 53

Sharing Resolver query logging configurations with other AWS accounts

You can share the query logging configurations that you created using one AWS account with other AWS accounts. To share configurations, the Route 53 Resolver console integrates with AWS Resource Access Manager. For more information about Resource Access Manager, see the Resource Access Manager User Guide.

Note the following:

Associating VPCs with shared query logging configurations

If another AWS account has shared one or more configurations with your account, you can associate VPCs with the configuration the same way that you associate VPCs with configurations that you created.

Deleting or unsharing a configuration

If you share a configuration with other accounts and then either delete the configuration or stop sharing it, and if one or more VPCs were associated with the configuration, Route 53 Resolver stops logging DNS queries that originate in those VPCs.

Maximum number of query logging configurations and VPCs that can be associated with a config

When an account creates a configuration and shares it with one or more other accounts, the maximum number of VPCs that can be associated with the configuration applies to the account that created the rule.

For current Resolver quotas, see Quotas on Route 53 Resolver.

Permissions

To share a rule with another AWS account, you must have permission to use the PutResolverQueryLogConfigPolicy action.

Restrictions on the AWS account that a rule is shared with

The account that a rule is shared with can't change or delete the rule.

Tagging

Only the account that created a rule can add, delete, or see tags on the rule.

To view the current sharing status of a rule (including the account that shared the account or the account that a rule is shared with), and to share rules with another account, perform the following procedure.

To view sharing status and share query logging configurations with another AWS account

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Query Logging.

  3. On the navigation bar, choose the Region where you created the rule.

    The Sharing status column shows the current sharing status of rules that were created by the current account or that are shared with the current account:

    • Not shared: The current AWS account created the rule, and the rule is not shared with any other accounts.

    • Shared by me: The current account created the rule and shared it with one or more accounts.

    • Shared with me: Another account created the rule and shared it with the current account.

  4. Choose the name of the rule that you want to display sharing information for or that you want to share with another account.

    On the Rule: rule name page, the value under Owner displays ID of the account that created the rule. That's the current account unless the value of Sharing status is Shared with me. In that case, Owner is the account that created the rule and shared it with the current account.

  5. Choose Share to view additional information or to share the rule with another account. A page in the Resource Access Manager console appears, depending on the value of Sharing status:

    • Not shared: The Create resource share page appears. For information about how to share the rule with another account, OU, or organization, skip to step 6.

    • Shared by me: The Shared resources page shows the rules and other resources that are owned by the current account and shared with other accounts.

    • Shared with me: The Shared resources page shows the rules and other resources that are owned by other accounts and shared with the current account.

  6. To share a query logging configuration with another AWS account, OU, or organization, specify the following values.

    Note

    You can't update sharing settings. If you want to change any of the following settings, you must reshare a rule with the new settings and then remove the old sharing settings.

    Description

    Enter a short description that helps you remember why you shared the query logging configuration.

    Resources

    Choose the check box for the configuration that you want to share.

    Principals

    Enter the AWS account number, OU name, or organization name.

    Tags

    Specify one or more keys and the corresponding values. For example, you might specify Cost center for Key and specify 456 for Value.

    These are the tags that AWS Billing and Cost Management provides for organizing your AWS bill; you can use also tags for other purposes. For more information about using tags for cost allocation, see Using cost allocation tags in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.
