Accessing AWS Management Console

Edit on GitHub

This document describes how to access AWS Management Console as an Identity and Access Management (IAM) user.

We create the requested IAM accounts during the initial setup. If you need to create more accounts, contact support.

To sign in to the AWS Management Console as an IAM user:

  1. In your browser, open the sign-in URL provided by your administrator.
Sign-in URL

The sign-in URL contains the ID of the account you are signing into. The pattern is https://{AWS_Account_ID}.signin.aws.amazon.com/console/. Alternatively, you can sign in at the general sign-in endpoint by entering the account ID manually.

The sign-in page opens with the Account ID (12 digits) or account alias field entered automatically.
