AWS Marketplace and AWS Organizations

AWS Marketplace is a curated digital catalog that you can use to find, buy, deploy, and manage third-party software, data, and services that you need to build solutions and run your businesses.

AWS Marketplace creates and manages licenses using AWS License Manager for your purchases in AWS Marketplace. When you share (grant access to) your licenses with other accounts in your organization, AWS Marketplace creates and manages new licenses for those accounts.

For more information, see Service-linked roles for AWS Marketplace in the AWS Marketplace Buyer Guide.
