Amazon MemoryDB for Redis now supports AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) authentication access to its clusters. With this launch, you can associate IAM users and roles with MemoryDB users and manage their cluster access.

You can configure IAM authentication by creating an IAM-enabled MemoryDB user and then assigning this user to an appropriate MemoryDB user group via the AWS Management Console, AWS CLI, or the AWS SDK. Using IAM policies, you can grant or revoke cluster access to different IAM identities. Redis applications can now use IAM credentials to authenticate to your MemoryDB clusters while connecting to them.

Amazon MemoryDB for Redis IAM authentication is available for Redis version 7.0 and higher. To learn more about using IAM Authentication with MemoryDB, please refer to our documentation. To learn more about IAM, refer to the AWS Identity and Access Management page.
