AWS PrivateLink for AWS Account Management - AWS Account Management

AWS PrivateLink for AWS Account Management

If you use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to host your AWS resources, you can access the AWS Account Management service from within the VPC without having to cross the public internet.

Amazon VPC lets you launch AWS resources in a custom virtual network. You can use a VPC to control your network settings, such as the IP address range, subnets, route tables, and network gateways. For more information about VPCs, see the Amazon VPC User Guide.

To connect your Amazon VPC to Account Management, you must first define an interface VPC endpoint, which lets you connect your VPC to other AWS services. The endpoint provides reliable, scalable connectivity, without requiring an internet gateway, network address translation (NAT) instance, or VPN connection. For more information, see Interface VPC Endpoints (AWS PrivateLink) in the Amazon VPC User Guide.

Creating the Endpoint

You can create an AWS Account Management endpoint in your VPC using the AWS Management Console, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), an AWS SDK, the AWS Account Management API, or AWS CloudFormation.

For information about creating and configuring an endpoint using the Amazon VPC console or the AWS CLI, see Creating an Interface Endpoint in the Amazon VPC User Guide.


When you create an endpoint, specify Account Management as the service that you want your VPC to connect to, using the following format:

You must use the string exactly as shown, specifying the us-east-1 Region. As a global service, Account Management is hosted in only that one AWS Region.

For information about creating and configuring an endpoint using AWS CloudFormation, see the AWS::EC2::VPCEndpoint resource in the AWS CloudFormation User Guide.

Amazon VPC Endpoint Policies

You can control what actions can performed through this service endpoint by attaching an endpoint policy when you create the Amazon VPC endpoint. You can create complex IAM rules by attaching multiple endpoint policies. For more information, see:
