Get secure, web-based access
Secure login and sessions
The AWS Management Console gives you secure login using your AWS or IAM account credentials. For added security, your login session automatically expires after 12 hours. To resume your session, simply click the "Click login to continue" button and log in again. You can also set your own time limits on federated sessions, based on your organization’s preference, using the federation API (GetFederationToken or AssumeRole).
Explore any AWS service with your choice of browsers. The Console supports the three latest versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari as well as Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.
Try out any AWS service with just a few clicks
Unified search and navigation
Use Unified Search to find the services you need or expand the Services menu in the global top navigation panel that follows you wherever you go in the Console. Just click Services from any page to see a full list of AWS services. Unified Search also allows you to find features (e.g., Users), AWS Marketplace products (e.g., Splunk), and AWS Documentation (e.g., troubleshooting guides) without leaving the the Console. You can quickly access the search bar using a keyboard shortcut (alt-s or option-s), autocomplete by using the right arrow key, and quickly navigate to the top result by pressing the enter key.

Use tools for building and learning
Automated wizards and workflows
The Console provides an assortment of simplified and automated workflows and wizards that make it easier to test and build with AWS services. Launch a virtual machine, connect an IoT device, or start a development project. You can deploy and test a wide range of solutions using one or more AWS services.
Compatibility with CLIs, SDKs, and other developer tools
The Management Console provides a number of organized and human-friendly ways to review, monitor, and interact with resources that you have created using developer tools, like the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) and AWS CloudFormation templates. The console can also help you visually discover and get hands-on quickly with the functionality of a service, even if you plan to build and deploy your applications and infrastructure programmatically.
The Management Console takes you quickly to the AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors. The AWS Marketplace makes it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS.
Customize and organize your console
You can add or remove the services you use to favorites in the Console. On desktop, once you hover over any service name, you can add or remove the service to the favorite section by clicking on the star next to the service name. On mobile or tablet, you can add or remove the service to the favorite section by clicking on the star next to the service name.
