Modifying an AWS Account in CloudCheckr CMx

As a CloudCheckr CMx customer, you can modify details for any account listed in the Accounts tab on the Account Hierarchy page.

However, what you can modify depends on the cloud provider associated with your selected account.

This topic will show you how to modify your settings for an AWS account.


If you are already in the Accounts tab, skip to Step 3.

  1. Launch CloudCheckr CMx.
  2. Type Account Hierarchy in the Search bar to access the Account Hierarchy page.
  3. In the Accounts tab, navigate to the account you want to modify.

    In this example, we navigated to the 998843210067 account.

    The Edit Account sub-drawer opens.
