Applies To:

DynaCenter 7.0.0 and later

Background: 

DynaCenter can integrate with the AWS Migration Hub, which provides a mechanism for tracking server workload migrations. To integrate DynaCenter with the AWS Migration Hub, you must assign an IAM Role with the appropriate AWS permissions to the DynaCenter instance (the DynaCenter Management Workstation (MWS)).

Note: Currently, the AWS Migration Hub is only available in the us-west-2 (Oregon) region; while you can migrate to any region, the migration status will always be sent to, and stored in, the us-west-2 (Oregon) region.
