Step 7: Review and Create Your Job

After you provide all the necessary job details for your AWS Snowball job, review the job and create it.

  1. On the AWS Snow Family Management Console, in the Review Job order page, review all the sections before you create the job. If you want to make changes, choose Edit for the appropriate section, and edit the information.

  2. When you are done reviewing and editing, choose Create Job. After you create a job, you can cancel it within an hour without incurring any charges.

    Jobs are subject to export control laws in specific countries and might require an export license. US export and re-export laws also apply. Diversion from the country and US laws and regulations is prohibited.


    AWS Snowball jobs are not fulfilled with a power supply, and one must be provided separately.

After your job is created, you can see the status of the job in the Job status section.
