Sharing a workload - AWS Well-Architected Tool

You can use the AWS Well-Architected Tool Connector for Jira to link your Jira account with AWS Well-Architected Tool, and sync improvement items between your workloads and Jira projects.

Sharing a workload

You can share a workload that you own with other AWS accounts, users, an organization, and organization units (OUs) in the same AWS Region.

Note

You can only share workloads within the same AWS Region.

When sharing a workload with another AWS account, if the recipient does not have the wellarchitected:UpdateShareInvitation permission, they cannot accept the share invitation. See Providing users, groups, or roles access to AWS WA Tool for permission policy examples.

To share a workload with other AWS accounts and users
  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the AWS Well-Architected Tool console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/wellarchitected/.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Workloads.

  3. Select a workload that you own in one of the following ways:

    • Choose the name of the workload.

    • Select the workload and choose View details.

  4. Choose Shares. Then choose Create and Create shares to users or accounts to create a workload invitation.

  5. Enter the 12-digit AWS account ID or the ARN of the user that you want to share the workload with.

  6. Choose the permission that you want to grant.

    Read-Only

    Provides read-only access to the workload.

    Contributor

    Provides update access to answers and their notes, and read-only access to the rest of the workload.

  7. Choose Create to send a workload invitation to the specified AWS account or user.

If the workload invitation is not accepted within seven days, the invitation is automatically expired.

If a user and the user's AWS account both have workload invitations, the workload invitation with the highest level permission is applied to the user.

Important

Before sharing a workload with an organization or organization units (OUs), you must enable AWS Organizations access.
