You can create a new AWS account directly from the Cloud Management Platform (CMP).

note

You need access to the specific Billing Profile that manages the domain.

Create a new account‚Äč

To create a new account:

  1. Log in to the CMP, select Billing from the top navigation bar, and then select Assets.

  2. Select Amazon Web Services from the Assets list.

  3. Select Create account and provide the necessary information.

    1. Choose the billing profile for the account.

    2. Choose a name for the account.

    3. Set the root email.

    4. Optionally, clear the Delete AWS Organization role checkbox.

      caution

      When creating a new account in the CMP, AWS automatically creates an IAM role named OrganizationAccountAccessRole. This role gives DoiT full administrator access in the new account.

      We suggest you to keep the Delete AWS Organization role checkbox selected to prevent unnecessary access from the DoiT account.

  4. Select Create.

    You will see a message on the screen confirming that the new account has been created. You will also get an email with further instructions.
