Last updated: 2021-10-15

How can I configure user access to cloud applications with AWS IAM Identity Center (successor to AWS Single Sign-On)?

Resolution

You can access the user portal using the user credentials for the directory configured as the identity source in the IAM Identity Center.

Set up IAM Identity Center

Set up the AWS Organizations service with the Organizations management account. For more information, see IAM Identity Center prerequisites.

Assign user access to cloud applications

Open the IAM Identity Center console and then assign access to users or groups. For more information, see Assign user access.

Note: It's a best practice to manage user access using groups instead of users. Groups are easier to manage than users and require less configuration. You can manage users in the directory configured as the identity source in the IAM Identity Center.

To locate the user portal URL, open the IAM Identity Center console, choose Dashboard, and then choose the link in User portal URL. To log in to the user portal, see How to sign in to the user portal.
