Create an IAM User – Old System

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

After logging into the console, you have to create a new IAM user. 

In the User name field, insert the user’s name.

Names must be unique inside your AWS account as the names are case-sensitive. Up to 64 letters, digits, and the following characters can be used in user names: plus (+), equal (=), comma (,), period (. ), at sign (@), and hyphen (-).

Click the Next: Permissions button after selecting Programmatic access under Access type.

You must offer the new user particular permissions in order to let it manage buckets and objects in the S3 service.

We advise granting the new IAM User sole access to S3 for the sake of this fast start tutorial. When configuring Next3 Offload Media for the first time, using the “AmazonS3FullAccess” policy helps prevent potential issues; however, experienced AWS users may want to utilize a Custom IAM Policy. Any IAM User’s policy can be changed at a later time to limit access to the resources needed by Next3 Offload Media alone.

After selecting “Attach existing policies directly,” type “s3” into the filter policies entry box.

At the bottom of the screen, select the “AmazonS3FullAccess” policy before clicking Next: Tags.

It is entirely up to you whether or not to add tags. But, if you frequently use AWS, you may find that doing so will facilitate administrative tasks. Click the Next: Review button at the bottom of the page whether or not you add tags here to proceed.

If everything appears to be in order, select the Create user button.

You will be shown the user’s security credentials, which are made up of a Secret Access Key and an Access Key ID. Please download these as a.csv file and copy them to a secure location because Amazon won’t display them again. The secret key cannot be retrieved again if you lose them; however, you can always create a fresh set of keys from the console.
