Creating an Organization under a sub-account


Hi, I wanted if it's possible to create a whole Organization (and accounts) in an account which is already a part of a parent Organization. Will look something like this:


  • OU 1
    • SubAccount_1 (Another Tower Control?)
      • OU_2
        • SubSubAccount_1

Accepted Answer

No unfortunately not. An AWS Organization cannot have another Organization underneath it. Control Tower is tied to the root AWS Organization and Management Account (or Billing Account as it is also known).
