Today, we are enabling you to centrally close members accounts in your Amazon Organizations through the console and programmatically via the Command Line Interface or SDK. The feature makes it easier and more efficient for you to manage your Amazon Web Services workloads by enabling you to close member accounts from your organization’s management account significantly simplifying the way you govern your multi-account infrastructure in Amazon Web Services.

Amazon Organizations helps you centrally manage and govern your environment as you grow and scale your Amazon Web Services resources. Using Amazon Organizations, you can programmatically create new accounts, close decommissioned accounts and allocate resources, simplify billing by setting up a single payment method for all of your accounts, create groups of accounts to organize your workflows, and apply policies to these groups for governance.

The ability to close accounts in your organization is available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more about account management, see our documentation page.
