With this new release of the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains, customers can use federated credentials, MFA and AWS Single Sign-On (AWS SSO) to connect their IDEs to AWS. Using AWS SSO, your organization's users can sign in to Active Directory, a built-in AWS SSO directory, or another external identity provider (IdP) connected to AWS SSO and get mapped to an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role. Regardless of which IdP you use, AWS SSO abstracts those distinctions away, and they all work with the AWS Toolkit. For example, you can connect Microsoft Azure AD/Okta as explained in this post.
The AWS Toolkit for JetBrains is an open-source plugin that lets you leverage the integrated development environment (IDE) for the creation, debugging, and deployment of software applications on Amazon Web Services, without leaving your code-authoring context. Check out the Setting AWS credentials for the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains section in the developer guide to get started.
