Updated IAM Console

If you are an AWS user, I sincerely hope that you are using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to control access to your services and your resources! As you probably know, you can create AWS users and groups and use permissions to allow and deny access to many aspects of AWS.

Today we are launching an update to the IAM console to make it even easier for you to mange your IAM settings, even if you, like many other AWS customers have created hundreds of IAM users, groups, roles, and policies.

The redesigned console streamlines management of large resource lists, eliminates the need to switch between tabs to accomplish common tasks, and offers a better experience on mobile devices. The new Security Checklist will help you to implement the recommendations for IAM best practices; the dashboard is cleaner and simpler, and you can now scroll through long lists of resources without the need to page back and forth. The sign-in link for IAM users is now more prominent.

PS – Last month we also added Enhanced Password Management and Credential Reports to IAM.
