As the first task, you must sign up for the AWS account. The AWS account allows you to access the Amazon FPS Sandbox and production environment. If you already have an AWS account and you understand the use of the access identifiers associated with the account, you can skip directly to Getting an FPS Developer Account.
You can register with AWS at the AWS web site at http://aws.amazon.com . The following access identifiers are automatically associated with your AWS account:
AWS Access Key ID—You use this to identify yourself when you send requests to the Co-Branded service or when you send REST requests to Amazon FPS.
AWS Secret Access Key—You use this to generate URL signatures that provide tamper-proof requests.
You can use these access identifiers in both the sandbox and the production environment.
To view your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key
Go to the Amazon Web Services web site at http://aws.amazon.com.
Point to Your Account to display a list of options.
Click Access Identifiers and log in to your AWS account.
Your Access Key ID is displayed on the resulting Access Identifiers page. Your Secret Access Key remains hidden as a further precaution as shown in the following figure.
To display your Secret Access Key, click Show in the Your Secret Access Key: area.
