I created a user account on IAM. Now I want to connect with the user to the AWS console, but AWS says: For Users who need access to the AWS Management Console, create a password in the Users panel after completing this wizard.

I have created one password for the IAM user.

I think there is a problem with your IAM user creation. You can follow the below steps to create an IAM user.

  • Login to your AWS account with root user.

  • Click on the IAM service.

  • Select users and click on add user option. You will get the below screen.

  • Write down your password and user name and click on the next permissions.

  • You will get a policy dashboard. Select your policy and click on Next.

  • Click on next. Now you are ready to create one user. Download your credentials and click on create user.

  • To log in with your IAM user, you can click on the below-given link.

https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/

  • At the time of log in with the IAM user, AWS will ask your Account ID. You can find your Account ID in your account details when you log in with your root account. Copy your Account ID and log out from root account and now you can log in with your IAM user.

I hope this will solve your error.

You can login URL that is available in the IAM Dashboard or create a personalised login URL as described here:

Hi,

Here for the above mentioned IAM user is not provided the respective access hence the user is unable to use access to the AWS console. Allocate the user with the respective access required to it.

In IAM different types of access are available to access each and specific in AWS.

Below are the steps for creating user and providing access to it:

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the IAM console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Users and then choose Add user.
  3. Type the user name for the new user. This is the sign-in name for AWS. If you want to add more than one user at the same time, choose Add another user for each additional user and type their user names. You can add up to 10 users at one time.
  4. Select the type of access this set of users will have. You can select programmatic access, access to the AWS Management Console, or both.
  • Select Programmatic access if the users require access to the API, AWS CLI, or Tools for Windows PowerShell. This creates an access key for each new user. You can view or download the access keys when you get to the Final page.
  • Select AWS Management Console access if the users require access to the AWS Management Console. This creates a password for each new user.
  1. For Console password, choose one of the following:
  • Autogenerated password. Each user gets a randomly generated password that meets the account password policy in effect (if any). You can view or download the passwords when you get to the Final page.
  • Custom password. Each user is assigned the password that you type in the box.
  1. (Optional) We recommend that you select Require password reset to ensure that users are forced to change their password the first time they sign in.
  2. Choose Next: Permissions.
  3. On the Set permissions page, specify how you want to assign permissions to this set of new users. Choose one of the following three options:
  • Add user to group. Choose this option if you want to assign the users to one or more groups that already have permissions policies. IAM displays a list of the groups in your account, along with their attached policies. You can select one or more existing groups, or choose Create group to create a new group. For more information, see Changing Permissions for an IAM User.
  • Copy permissions from existing user. Choose this option to copy all of the group memberships, attached managed policies, embedded inline policies, and any existing permissions boundaries from an existing user to the new users. IAM displays a list of the users in your account. Select the one whose permissions most closely match the needs of your new users.
  • Attach existing policies to user directly. Choose this option to see a list of the AWS managed and customer managed policies in your account. Select the policies that you want to attach to the new users or choose Create policy to open a new browser tab and create a new policy from scratch. For more information, see step 4 in the procedure Creating IAM Policies (Console). After you create the policy, close that tab and return to your original tab to add the policy to the new user. As a best practice, we recommend that you instead attach your policies to a group and then make users members of the appropriate groups.
  1. (Optional) Set a permissions boundary. This is an advanced feature.
    Open the Set permissions boundary section and choose Use a permissions boundary to control the maximum user permissions. IAM displays a list of the AWS managed and customer managed policies in your account. Select the policy to use for the permissions boundary or choose Create policy to open a new browser tab and create a new policy from scratch. For more information, see step 4 in the procedure Creating IAM Policies (Console). After you create the policy, close that tab and return to your original tab to select the policy to use for the permissions boundary.
  2. Choose Next: Tags.
  3. (Optional) Add metadata to the user by attaching tags as key-value pairs. For more information about using tags in IAM, see Tagging IAM Users and Roles.
  4. Choose Next: Review to see all of the choices you made up to this point. When you are ready to proceed, choose Create user.
  5. To view the users' access keys (access key IDs and secret access keys), choose Show next to each password and access key that you want to see. To save the access keys, choose Download .csv and then save the file to a safe location.
