AWS Marketplace Private 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. A private marketplace provides you with a broad catalog of products available in AWS Marketplace, along with fine-grained control of those products.

AWS Marketplace Private Marketplace enables you to create multiple private marketplace experiences that are associated with your entire organization, one or more OUs, or one or more accounts in your organization, each with its own set of approved products. Your AWS administrators can also apply company branding to each private marketplace experience with your company or team’s logo, messaging, and color scheme.

For more information, see Using roles to configure Private Marketplace in AWS Marketplace in the AWS Marketplace Buyer Guide.

Use the following information to help you integrate AWS Marketplace Private Marketplace 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 using the AWS Marketplace Private Marketplace console. This role allows Private Marketplace 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 Marketplace Private Marketplace and Organizations and disassociate all private marketplace experiences in your organization.

If you enable trusted access directly from the Organizations console, CLI or SDK, the service-linked role is not created automatically.
