Quotas and restrictions for AWS Audit Manager - AWS Audit Manager

Quotas and restrictions for AWS Audit Manager

Your AWS account has default quotas, formerly referred to as limits, for each AWS service. Unless otherwise noted, each quota is Region-specific. You can request increases for some quotas, and other quotas can’t be increased.

Most Audit Manager quotas, but not all, are listed under the AWS Audit Manager namespace in the Service Quotas console. To learn how to request a quota increase, see Managing your Audit Manager quotas.

The following AWS Audit Manager quotas are per AWS account per Region.

  • Number of active assessments per account: 100

    • For same-Region reports (where the assessment and the assessment report destination S3 bucket are in the same AWS Region): 22,000
