AWS Artifact and AWS Organizations - AWS Organizations

AWS Artifact and AWS Organizations

AWS Artifact is a service that allows you to download AWS security compliance reports such as ISO and PCI reports. Using AWS Artifact, a user in the organization's management account can automatically accept agreements on behalf of all member accounts in an organization, even as new reports and accounts are added. Member account users can view and download agreements. For more information, see Managing an agreement for multiple accounts in AWS Artifact in the AWS Artifact User Guide.

Use the following information to help you integrate AWS Artifact with AWS Organizations.

Service-linked roles created when you enable integration

The following service-linked role is automatically created in your organization's management account when you enable trusted access. This role allows AWS Artifact to perform supported operations within your organization's accounts in your organization.

You can delete or modify this role only if you disable trusted access between AWS Artifact and Organizations, or if you remove the member account from the organization.

The service-linked role in the previous section can be assumed only by the service principals authorized by the trust relationships defined for the role. The service-linked roles used by AWS Artifact grant access to the following service principals:

Disabling trusted access with AWS Artifact

For information about the permissions needed to disable trusted access, see Permissions required to disable trusted access.

Only an administrator in the AWS Organizations management account can disable trusted access with AWS Artifact.

You can disable trusted access using only the Organizations tools.

AWS Artifact requires trusted access with AWS Organizations to work with organization agreements. If you disable trusted access using AWS Organizations while you are using AWS Artifact for organization agreements, it stops functioning because it cannot access the organization. Any organization agreements that you accept in AWS Artifact remain, but can't be accessed by AWS Artifact. The AWS Artifact role that AWS Artifact creates remains. If you then re-enable trusted access, AWS Artifact continues to operate as before, without the need for you to reconfigure the service.

A standalone account that is removed from an organization no longer has access to any organization agreements.

You can disable trusted access by using either the AWS Organizations console, by running an Organizations AWS CLI command, or by calling an Organizations API operation in one of the AWS SDKs.
