Creating an Access URL - AWS Directory Service
AWS services or capabilities described in AWS documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with AWS services in China.

Creating an Access URL

An access URL is used with AWS applications and services, such as Amazon WorkSpaces, to reach a login page that is associated with your directory. The URL must be unique globally. You can create an access URL for your directory by performing the following steps.

Warning

Once you create an application access URL for this directory, it cannot be changed. After an access URL is created, it cannot be used by others. If you delete your directory, the access URL is also deleted and can then be used by any other account.

To create an access URL

  1. In the AWS Directory Service console navigation pane, select Directories.

  2. On the Directories page, choose your directory ID.

  3. On the Directory details page, select the Application management tab.

  4. In the Application access URL section, if an access URL has not been assigned to the directory, the Create button is displayed. Enter a directory alias and choose Create. If an Entity Already Exists error is returned, the specified directory alias has already been allocated. Choose another alias and repeat this procedure.

    Your access URL is displayed in the format <alias>.awsapps.com.
