Frank shows you how to allow
users or roles in another AWS account
to access resources in your account


How do I use Identity and Access Management (IAM) to allow IAM users from another account to access resources in my account?

If you have the 12-digit account number and permissions to create and edit IAM roles and users for both accounts, you can enable particular IAM users to access resources on your account by following the instructions at Tutorial: Delegate Access Across AWS Accounts Using IAM Roles.

Note: If you don’t have access to create and edit IAM roles and users, you’ll require assistance from the owner of the other account to complete the process. Only grant access to your account and resources to entities you trust.
