AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) now provides a directory by default that you can use to create users and organize them in groups within AWS SSO. Within minutes, you can grant your users and groups permissions to AWS resources in all your AWS accounts as well as many business applications. Your users sign in to a user portal with a single set of credentials configured in AWS SSO to access all of their assigned accounts and applications in a single place. AWS SSO as well as this new directory is available at no additional cost.

AWS SSO is a cloud service that makes it easy to grant your users access to AWS resources, such as Amazon EC2 instances, in multiple AWS accounts. You can also grant user access to business applications such Salesforce, Box, and Office 365. You can connect to an existing Microsoft AD directory so that your users can use corporate credentials to access their assigned accounts and applications or create and manage your users in AWS SSO. To learn more about creating and managing users in AWS SSO, see How to create and manage users within AWS SSO.

AWS Single Sign-On is available in the US East (N. Virginia) Region.
