Users of AWS IAM Identity Center can now take advantage of a streamlined AWS access portal and time-saving shortcut links to navigate directly to destinations in the AWS Management Console in accordance with their permissions. 

The enhanced AWS access portal offers improved usability and discoverability of applications, accounts, and permission sets. Shortcut links take an authenticated user to a desired AWS Management Console destination, such as an S3 bucket details page, in a specific account, and with a specific permission set already assigned to the user. They enable the user to land directly at the destination, without the need for page-to-page navigation. Users can save shortcut links as browser bookmarks or on a team wiki page, embed them in operational tickets, or share them with others.

The streamlined AWS access portal and the shortcut links are available in all AWS Regions where IAM Identity Center is available, except the China Regions.

IAM Identity Center helps you connect or create your workforce identities, and manage their access to multiple AWS applications and AWS accounts. IAM Identity Center is available to you at no additional cost. To learn more about IAM Identity Center, visit the product detail page. To get started with using the shortcut links, please refer to the user guide.
