Transferring AWS assets to another account
We would need to transfer all assets under an AWS account (not the one I post this message under) to a different account. Questions:
Is it at all possible - to transfer all assets under control of a different AWS account?
If answer to 1. is positive - how it can be done?
If answer to 1. is negative - how do I place a different person under control of an AWS account (that means changing personal data/address, payment means)
May a person have several AWS accounts (if we have to use 3. above)?
It isn't possible to transfer all assets of an AWS account under control of a different AWS account, however depending on the resources it may be possible to migrate resources to another account.
While we in the Accounts & Billing department are not trained to assist with technical processes such as transferring resources from one account to another, I've located the following documentation about the process which may help.
If you're using EC2, you can try launching custom EC2 instances from another account that match your currently running instance configurations. You can do this by creating custom AMIs and sharing them across accounts. More information on that can be found here:
If you're using S3, it isn't possible to move your bucket to a different account, but if you need to move Amazon S3 objects from one bucket to another (owned by a different AWS account), you can use the S3 COPY operation. For more information, please refer to the documentation available at the link below:
If you're using other resources or services, feel free to post in the appropriate service forums for help from our community of experts. They have the technical know-how and may be able to help you.
If you're wanting to place a different person under control of an AWS account, a request can be made by contacting us directly from the account in question. Below find the full process:
A person can have multiple AWS accounts as long as they don't share the same email address:
All clear, proceeding with transferring the entire account.
No problem Konstantin! Glad to help. :)
