Sharing CloudWatch data between accounts

AWS paves the way for the CloudWatch console to view metrics cross-account and cross-region which is very handy in a multi-account and potentially multi-region deployment managed by Substrate. Substrate does the majority of the work of managing IAM roles and configuration to make this easy.

To use this facility, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the cross-account cross-region settings in the CloudWatch console
  2. Check the “Show selector in the console” box
  3. Click Save changes
