Provision Accounts Through Service Catalog - AWS Control Tower

Provision Accounts Through Service Catalog

Service Catalog enables IT administrators to create, manage, and distribute portfolios of approved products to end users, who then have access the products they need in a personalized portal. Typical products include servers, databases, websites, or applications that are deployed using AWS resources.

You can control the users that have access to specific products, which allows you to enforce compliance with organizational business standards, manage product lifecycles, and help users find and launch products with confidence. For more information, see Service Catalog Administrator Guide.

In AWS Control Tower, your central cloud administrators and your end users can provision accounts in your landing zone using Account Factory, a product in Service Catalog. For more information, see Provision and manage accounts with Account Factory.

AWS Control Tower also can make use of the Service Catalog APIs to further automate account provisioning and updating. For details, see the AWS Service Catalog Developer Guide.
