ACM Console Does Not Display "Create record in Route 53" Button

If you select Amazon Route 53 as your DNS provider, AWS Certificate Manager can interact directly with it to validation your domain ownership. Under some circumstances, the console's Create record in Route 53 button may not be available when you expect it. If this happens, check for the following possible causes.

  • You are not using Route 53 as your DNS provider.

  • You are logged into ACM and Route 53 through different accounts.

  • You lack IAM permissions to create records in a zone hosted by Route 53.

  • You or someone else has already validated the domain.
