Common Issues

  • Region selection can only be done at the organizational level if an AWS organization is connected to Vanta. If individual accounts are connected, region selection will occur at the individual account level. 

  • For AWS Organization connections, Region data will only be recognised at the top organizational level, not for the individual sub accounts. If any of the regions monitored are not enabled on the sub accounts managed within the organization, this can cause the fetch to be disabled.
