Sharing license subscriptions in an organization - AWS Data Exchange User Guide

Sharing license subscriptions in an organization

When you subscribe to AWS Data Exchange products, an agreement is created that grants you license to use those products. If your AWS account is a member of an organization, you can share that license for AWS Data Exchange products with the other accounts in that organization.

Note

For more information about AWS Organizations, see the AWS Organizations User Guide.

The following topics outline the process of sharing the licenses across accounts.

Prerequisites for license sharing

Before you can share licenses for data products, you must first set up license sharing for your organization. Complete the following tasks to set up license sharing for your organization:

  • Give AWS Marketplace permission to manage licenses on your behalf so that it can create the associated license grants when you purchase or share your licenses. For more information, see Service-linked roles for AWS Marketplace in the AWS Marketplace Buyer Guide.

  • Set up AWS License Manager for first use. For more information, see Getting started with AWS License Manager in the AWS License Manager User Guide.
