Rekognition Collection Limit


Hi everyone,

Looking at the Rekognition Guidelines and quotas I don't see any mention of how many Collections you can have in an account. Would there be any problem in having millions of collections?

Thanks for your help.

  • Thank-you; however this does not answer my question. I'm interested in the maximum number of Collections, not the other limits listed.
