What is the AWS Console Mobile Application?

The AWS Console Mobile Application lets you view and manage a select set of resources and receive important push notifications to stay informed and connected with your AWS resources while on-the-go.

With the Console Mobile Application, you can monitor resources and view configuration details, metrics, and alarms for a select subset of AWS services. You can see an overview of the account status with real-time data on Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Personal Health Dashboard, AWS Billing and Cost Management, and Recently Visited Services. You can view ongoing issues and follow through to the relevant CloudWatch alarm or CloudWatch dashboard screen for a detailed view with graphs and configuration options. In addition, you can check on the status of specific AWS services, view detailed resource screens, and perform some actions.

You can also get instantly notified about resources of interest by using push notifications. Push notifications allow you to get a snapshot of messages or issues and assess the situation without having to log in to the Console Mobile Application. If you want to follow up on a notification, you can choose the notification and upon successful login, be directed to the relevant screen inside the application.

The Console Mobile Application requires an existing AWS account. After you sign in with your user credentials or a federated role, the Console Mobile Application remembers your credentials and securely stores them in your mobile device’s password manager so that you can easily switch between identities from the identities screen of the Console Mobile App. You can also use hardware authenticators, such as Yubikeys, for additional security while signing in to your AWS account from the Console Mobile Application.
