Supporting unified search in the Amazon Web Services Management Console

The Amazon Web Services Management Console has a search bar at the top of every console page. This provides a unified search experience across all Amazon Web Services. Unified search results can include such things as:

  • Amazon Web Service and feature console pages.

  • Amazon documentation pages.

  • Amazon blog and Knowledge Base articles

  • Resources in your accounts — if you follow the steps below.

To see your account's resources in your unified search results, you must perform the following steps. You can do this during initial setup of Amazon Resource Explorer. It all happens automatically if you use the Quick setup option.

Unified search always uses the default view in the Amazon Web Services Region that contains the aggregator index to perform all searches.
