How do I offboard a Multi-Account Landing Zone application account?

Some offboarding scenarios.

Scenario:

You want to offboard one, or more than one, application accounts from your multi-account landing zone environment, close (terminate) those accounts completely.

Process:

  1. You communicate with your CSDMs or CAs to request offboarding via email or a service request.

  2. AMS works on offboarding your accounts from AMS.

  3. Your CSDM or CA sends you an outbound email containing further instructions; see How do I close my AWS account?

Prerequisites: Verify that you can access the account email used for account closures.

Offboarding Conclusions:

  • All components are disassociated from AMS services, and most of the resources are deleted in the requested accounts. Your resources remain in the account until you request account closure.

  • Core accounts and other application accounts function normally after the offboarding request.

  • Billing is not stopped until you request account closures.

  • After the account is closed, you can still sign in and file a support case or contact AWS Support for 90 days.

  • After 90 days, any content remaining in the account is permanently deleted, and AWS services that aren't already terminated, are terminated.
