After creating our Access Policy (from this guide), we’ll create a new user and assign that user to our newly created Policy.
- Go to https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/home and login to your AWS account
Click on “Users” then “Add user“
Give your user a Username and AccessType “Programmatic Access“
Click on Attach existing policies directly, then search for the policy we just created
Click on Next: Tags, and skip this step. Move on to “Create User“
User successfully created!
I highly encourage you to “Download .csv” to save your credentials to a file, otherwise you will NOT be able to retrieve these credentials again!
