New Tabbed Organization of Your Resources in the IAM Console

Today, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enhanced the IAM console user interface to make it easier to view details about your users, groups, roles, and policies (“IAM entities”). The detail pages for these IAM entities now are organized with tabs for easier browsing so that you can quickly switch between them with minimal scrolling.

Previously, the contents of these detail pages were organized in a cascading vertical arrangement. For example, if you were trying to determine which managed policies were attached to an IAM user, you had to locate that information by scrolling down the user’s detail page.

The following screenshot illustrates how the detail page for an IAM user has changed. We’ve applied a similar approach to the detail pages for groups, roles, and policies.

Please let us know what you think of this change by clicking Feedback, which is located in the bottom-left corner of every page in the IAM console (see the preceding screenshot), or by leaving a comment on the IAM forum.
