How do I offboard a Multi-Account Landing Zone environment?

Scenario:

You want to leave AMS, and close (terminate) your AMS AWS account completely (including the primary account that you provided).

Process:

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

  2. AMS works on offboarding your accounts.

  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 the AMS services, but are not yet deleted in all accounts. Account closure will eventually delete all resources.

  • Billing is not stopped until you request the 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.
