AWS Single Sign-On Now Enables You to Optimize How Long You can Access AWS Accounts

Posted on: Oct 30, 2018

AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) now enables you to customize the session duration to AWS accounts ranging from 1 hour up to 12 hours. You can configure session duration for each permission set so that you can optimize how long your users can access AWS Management Console and AWS CLI for your AWS accounts. For example, when your users need to run long-running operations, you can increase the session duration so that your users can complete the operation using a single session. To learn more about configuring session duration, see Set Session Duration

With AWS SSO, you can manage user access to multiple AWS accounts in your AWS Organizations and many business applications such as Salesforce, Office 365, and Box. Users get one-click access to assigned accounts and applications by signing in to the AWS SSO user portal. 

AWS Single Sign-On is available in the US East (N. Virginia) Region. To get started with AWS SSO, see Introducing AWS Single Sign-On.
