  1. Log into your AWS Payer account as an administrative user.

  2. Ensure you are in the us-east-1 region.

  3. Go to the AWS Organizations service and find the OU ID you want to be in scope for the integration (we recommend the “Root” user ID - e.g. “r-fwxf”). Copy this ID as it will be used in a later step.
