Hello aolfa, I think redeploying the StackSet 'AWSControlTowerBP-BASELINE-CONFIG' to your audit account would be helpful in resolving your issue I recommend deleting the stack instance for your audit account by following the steps outlined in this document [1], and then recreating the stack instance by updating the StackSet "AWSControlTowerBP-BASELINE-CONFIG" [2]. [1] - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/stackinstances-delete.html [2] - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSCloudFormation/latest/UserGuide/stackinstances-create.html I hope this method works. :)
