Amazon DevOps Guru and AWS Organizations - AWS Organizations

Amazon DevOps Guru and AWS Organizations

Amazon DevOps Guru analyzes operational data and application metrics and events to identify behaviors that deviate from normal operating patterns. Users are notified when DevOps Guru detects an operational issue or risk.

Using DevOps Guru enables multi-account support with AWS Organizations, so you can designate a member account to manage insights across your entire organization. This delegated administrator can then view, sort, and filter insights from all accounts within your organization to develop a holistic view of the health of all monitored applications within your organization without the need for any additional customization.

For more information, see Monitor accounts across your organization in the Amazon DevOps Guru User Guide.

Use the following information to help you integrate Amazon DevOps Guru with AWS Organizations.
