Amazon CloudWatch now supports Service Quotas in Cross-Account observability allowing customers to track and visualise resource utilisation and limits across multiple Amazon Web Services services from multiple accounts within a region using a central monitoring account.

Quotas are the limits or the maximum values for the resources, actions, and items of the Amazon Web Services services in your Amazon Web Services account. Using Cross-Account Service Quotas, customers can view these quotas for all their source accounts from a single monitoring account and prevent hitting the limits. Customers no longer have to track the quotas by logging into individual accounts, instead from a central monitoring account, they can create dashboards and alarms for the Amazon Web Services service quota usage across all their source accounts.

Cross-Account Service Quotas is now available in commercial Amazon Web Services Regions, including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.

To get started, you first need to setup CloudWatch cross-account observability. Once configuration is complete, please refer to Service Quota visualization documentation for further information. Service Quotas are available at no additional charge. Standard pricing applies for the APIs, Alarms and Dashboard, see Amazon CloudWatch pricing page for details.
