Developer-mode application accounts - AMS Advanced Onboarding Guide

Developer-mode application accounts

Accounts with Developer Mode are a type of AMS-managed account that provide customers with elevated permissions in AMS Plus accounts to provision and update AWS resources outside of the AMS change management process. When using an account that has developer mode enabled, continuity management, patch management, and change management are provided for resources provisioned through the AMS change management process or by using an AMS Amazon Machine Image (AMI). However, customers are responsible for monitoring infrastructure resources that are provisioned outside of the AMS change management process. With elevated permissions, you have an increased responsibility to ensure adherence to internal controls.
