  1. Start by logging on with a Console user account with admin permissions.
  2. Select the IAM tab.
  3. Expand the left menu by clicking the menu button.
  4. Click Users in the left pane.
  5. Click the UserName for the user account that you wish to create the Access Key for.
  6. Select the API Access tab.
  7. Optionally delete any existing User Keys.
  8. Click the Create New Access Key button.
  9. Click the Download CSV button and save the credentials.csv file.

The details in the credentials.csv file will allow you to configure your third party application.
