What is IAM?

awsIAM is the recommended approach for allowing users day-to-day access to your AWS resources. This article describes a process of setting up IAM access.


Some initial steps

Start by logging on with your root account.

  1. Create an admin Role.
  2. Create a Policy to force users to use MFA.
  3. Create the Administrators and Users Groups.
  4. Create your first User.

Now you can log out from your root account, and log in as the new user.
