AWS Trusted Advisor and AWS Organizations - AWS Organizations

AWS Trusted Advisor and AWS Organizations

AWS Trusted Advisor inspects your AWS environment and makes recommendations when opportunities exist to save money, to improve system availability and performance, or to help close security gaps. When integrated with Organizations, you can receive Trusted Advisor check results for all of the accounts in your organization and download reports to view the summaries of your checks and any affected resources.

For more information, see Organizational view for AWS Trusted Advisor in the AWS Support User Guide.

Use the following information to help you integrate AWS Trusted Advisor 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 Trusted Advisor 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 Trusted Advisor and Organizations, or if you remove the member account from the organization.

Important

We strongly recommend that whenever possible, you use the AWS Trusted Advisor console or tools to disable integration with Organizations. This lets AWS Trusted Advisor perform any clean up that it requires, such as deleting resources or access roles that are no longer needed by the service. Proceed with these steps only if you can’t disable integration using the tools provided by AWS Trusted Advisor.

If you disable trusted access by using the AWS Trusted Advisor console or tools then you don’t need to complete these steps.

To disable trusted access using the Trusted Advisor console

See Disable organizational view in the AWS Support User Guide.

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