Using the inventory - Savings Plans

Using the inventory

The Savings Plans Inventory page shows a detailed overview of the Savings Plans that you own, or have queued for future purchase.

If you're a user in a member account of AWS Organizations, you can view the Savings Plans owned by your specific member account. If you’re a user in the management account of an organization, you can either view Savings Plans that are owned only by the management account, or you can view Savings Plans that are owned by all accounts in your organization. You can change views by choosing Account inventory or Organization inventory.

Note

You can see your recently purchased Savings Plans in your Account inventory shortly after purchase. It might take longer for Savings Plans to appear in your Organization inventory view.

Using queues to replace an expiring Savings Plan

If your active Savings Plans are nearing expiration, you can queue a purchase to start as soon as the active Savings Plans expire. This helps ensure that you have continuous Savings Plans coverage.

To queue a Savings Plan purchase to replace an expiring Savings Plan

  1. Open the AWS Cost Management console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/cost-management/home.

  2. In the navigation pane, under Savings Plans, choose Inventory.

  3. Select the reference Savings Plan using the check box.

    You can only select one Savings Plan at a time. The selected Savings Plan must be in active status.

  4. Choose Actions.

  5. Choose Renew Savings Plan.

  6. (Alternative) Choose the reference Savings Plan.

    1. On the Savings Plan details page, choose Renew Savings Plan.

      Note

      Renew Savings Plan renews your plan with the same configuration, and fees are charged using the current Savings Plan rate. This automatically sets the new Savings Plan start date to be one second after the reference Savings Plan expiration.

      You might want to change your commitment amount depending on changes in your usage or Savings Plans rates from the time you purchased the reference Savings Plan.

  7. On the Cart page, choose Submit order.
