How does Kion work with AWS Organizations?


Kion uses AWS Organizations for AWS account creation. The OU structure in Kion is completely separate from the OU structure in AWS Organizations. 

Kion OUs are designed to compliment AWS Organizations:

  • AWS Organizations enable you to apply service control policies (SCPs) to groups of AWS accounts at an account level.
  • Kion enables you to apply cloud rules to Kion OUs, which apply IAM policies to roles managed by Kion.

With Kion, you gain more granular control of permissions than you can with AWS Organizations alone.
