Viewing service quotas - Service Quotas

Viewing service quotas

Service Quotas enables you to look up the AWS default value and applied values of a particular quota, also referred to as a limit. For certain resource-level quotas, such as Instances per domain for Amazon OpenSearch Service, you can also view the applied quota values per resource.

AWS Management Console
To view the quotas for a service
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Service Quotas console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/servicequotas/home.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose AWS services.

  3. Select an AWS service from the list, or type the name of the service in the search field. For each quota, the console displays the quota name, applied quota value, AWS default quota value, utilization, and if the quota is adjustable, whether it's adjustable at the account or resource level. If the applied quota value or utilization is not available, the console displays Not available. You can request your applied quota value through the Support Center Console.

  4. Choose the quota name to see the quota's details page. The console provides the quota's Description, Quota code, Quota ARN, Utilization, Applied quota value, AWS default quota value, and if it's Adjustable.

    If applicable, the console also displays the Resource level quotas, Alarms, Request history, and Tags for the quota.

AWS CLI
Viewing default quota values

View the default values for the quotas for a specific AWS service.

  • Call the ListDefaultServiceQuotas operation with a service code. If you don't have the service code, get the list of services supported by Service Quotas with the ListServices operation. The response includes the ServiceCode and ServiceName for each service. The ServiceCode for Amazon OpenSearch Service is es. The following CLI example retrieves default values for Amazon OpenSearch Service quotas.

    $ aws service-quotas list-aws-default-service-quotas \ --service-code es \ { "Quotas": [ { "QuotaName": "Domains per Region", "Adjustable": true, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-076D529E", "Value": 100.0, "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-076D529E", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Dedicated master instances per domain", "Adjustable": false, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-AE676A72", "Value": 5.0, "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-AE676A72", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Warm instances per domain", "Adjustable": false, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-1F053E6F", "Value": 150.0, "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-1F053E6F", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Instances per domain", "Adjustable": true, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-6408ABDE", "Value": 80.0, "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-6408ABDE", "Unit": "None", "QuotaContext": { "ContextScope": "RESOURCE", "ContextScopeType": "AWS::OpenSearchService::Domain", } } ] }
Viewing applied quota values

View the applied quota values for a specified AWS service. For some quotas, only the default values are available. If the applied quota value isn't available for a quota, the quota is not returned in the response. If this happens, contact AWS Support for the applied quota value.

  • Call the ListServiceQuotas operation with a service code. You can choose to retrieve all applied quota values either at the account-level, resource-level, or all levels by passing ACCOUNT, RESOURCE, or ALL respectively as the value for the parameter QuotaAppliedAtLevel.

    The following CLI example retrieves all quota values applied at the account-level for OpenSearch Service.

    $ aws service-quotas list-service-quotas \ --service-code es \ --quota-applied-at-level ACCOUNT { "Quotas": [ { "QuotaName": "Domains per Region", "Adjustable": true, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-076D529E", "Value": 100.0, "QuotaAppliedAtLevel": "ACCOUNT", "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-076D529E", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Dedicated master instances per domain", "Adjustable": false, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-AE676A72", "Value": 5.0, "QuotaAppliedAtLevel": "ACCOUNT", "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-AE676A72", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Warm instances per domain", "Adjustable": false, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-1F053E6F", "Value": 150.0, "QuotaAppliedAtLevel": "ACCOUNT", "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-1F053E6F", "Unit": "None", }, { "QuotaName": "Instances per domain", "Adjustable": true, "QuotaArn": "arn:aws:servicequotas:us-east-1::123456789012:es/L-6408ABDE", "Value": 80.0, "QuotaAppliedAtLevel": "ACCOUNT", "ServiceName": "Amazon OpenSearch Service", "GlobalQuota": false, "ServiceCode": "es", "QuotaCode": "L-6408ABDE", "Unit": "None", "QuotaContext": { "ContextScope": "RESOURCE", "ContextScopeType": "AWS::OpenSearchService::Domain", "ContextId": "*" } } ] }
