Sharing subscriptions in an organization - AWS Marketplace

Sharing subscriptions in an organization

When you subscribe to products in AWS Marketplace, 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 AMI, container, and machine learning products with the other accounts in that organization. You must set up license support in AWS Marketplace, and then share from within AWS License Manager.

Note

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

For more information about sharing licenses with your organization in AWS License Manager, see Granted licenses in the AWS License Manager User Guide.

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

Prerequisites for license sharing

Before you can share licenses in AWS Marketplace you must set up license sharing for your organization. Complete the following tasks to set up license sharing for your organization:

Viewing and sharing your licenses

AWS Marketplace automatically creates licenses for AMI, container, and machine learning products that you purchase. You can share those licenses with other accounts in your organization.

You manage and share licenses using AWS License Manager. However, you can use AWS Marketplace to view the licenses for products that you purchased from within AWS Marketplace.

To view licenses for your subscribed products

  1. In AWS Marketplace, sign in and choose Manage Subscriptions.

  2. You can view all licenses or view the license for a specific subscription.

    • To view all licenses

      1. From the Actions menu, select View Licenses to view all AWS Marketplace managed licenses in the License Manager console.

    • To view licenses for a single subscription

      1. Choose the card of the product that you want to view to go to its product details page.

      2. From the Actions menu, select View License to view the license for that product in the License Manager console.

Note

Subscriptions in AWS Marketplace have an Access level shown in the product details. Products with an Agreement level have a license that you can use and share with other accounts in your organization. Products with an Entitlement level are licenses that have been shared with your account—you can use these products, but you can't share them.

Only AMI, container, and machine learning products will have licences that can be shared.

From License Manager, you can share your license with other accounts in your organization. For more details about using License Manager with AWS managed licenses, see the Granted licenses and Seller issued licenses topics in the AWS License Manager User Guide.
