I’m trying to read more about ‘publishing accounts’, but I can’t find anything in AWS documentation referring to a publishing account.
A publishing account is more of a concept than an account classification. It is an account that you might create to host golden AMIs or a corporate ECR with docker images that you would then permit other containers read-only access to pull those standardized version of resources.
AWS referred to the concept in a whitepaper that pre-dated what we now call AWS Organizations so the documentation has been changed over to push people to that product rather than manually created a series of accounts by themselves.
I probably should update this question to remove the confusion.
Also to complement Scotts answer to this, these concepts and account structures are talked here:
There’s also the whitepapers that these are from:
- Multi Account Security:
- Multi account billing:
These have been updated on the summer of 2017, so they don’t seem too ancient, and are short so might be worth looking through.
