Working with Amazon Organizations to create organization-level dashboards

S3 Storage Lens aggregates your metrics and displays the information in the Account snapshot section on the Amazon S3 console Buckets page. S3 Storage Lens also provides an interactive dashboard that you can use to visualize insights and trends, flag outliers, and receive recommendations for optimizing storage costs and applying data-protection best practices. Your dashboard has drill-down options to generate insights at the organization, account, bucket, object, or prefix level. You can also send a once-daily metrics export in CSV or Parquet format to an S3 bucket.

The Amazon S3 Storage Lens default dashboard is default-account-dashboard. This dashboard is preconfigured by Amazon S3 to help you visualize summarized insights and trends for your entire account's aggregated free and advanced metrics on the console. You can't modify the default dashboard's configuration scope, but you can upgrade the metrics selection from the free metrics to the paid advanced metrics and recommendations, configure the optional metrics export, or even disable the default dashboard. The default dashboard cannot be deleted.

You can also create additional S3 Storage Lens dashboards that are focused on specific Amazon Web Services Regions, S3 buckets, or other Amazon Web Services accounts in your organization.

The Amazon S3 dashboard provides a rich resource of information about its storage scope representing more than 30 metrics that represent trends and information, including storage summary, cost efficiency, data protection, and activity.

Amazon S3 Storage Lens can be used to collect storage metrics and usage data for all accounts that are part of your Amazon Organizations hierarchy. To do this, you must be using Amazon Organizations, and you must enable S3 Storage Lens trusted access using your Amazon Organizations management account. 

When trusted access is enabled, you can add delegate administrator access to accounts in your organization. These accounts can then create organization-wide dashboards and configurations for S3 Storage Lens. For more information about enabling trusted access, see Amazon S3 Lens and Amazon Organizations in the Amazon Organizations User Guide.

The following console controls are only available to the Amazon Organizations management accounts.
