The Getting Started shows you how to use AWS Identity and Access Management to create groups and users within your AWS account, but IAM also enables you to do many tasks not covered there. This section provides links to additional resources that will help you deepen your understanding of permissions and how to use IAM with other AWS products to control users' access.
To learn more about IAM, read the following sections:
Business Use Cases describes how you might use IAM with other AWS products.
IAM Users and Groups has details about managing users and groups in your AWS account.
AWS Services that Support IAM links to information about how IAM works with other AWS products (for example, Amazon EC2 or Amazon S3), and what you can do to control your users' access to specific AWS products and resources.
Friendly Names and Paths in IAM Identifiers explains how to use paths to logically separate groups and users based on organizational structure.
To learn more about IAM policies and permissions, refer to the following resources:
Permissions and Policies describes permissions, policies, and the access policy language you use to write policies.
Example Policies for Administering AWS Resources provides examples of policies that control access for your IAM resources.
The AWS Policy Generator is a tool you can use to generate AWS policies automatically.
This guide has shown you how to create users and groups using the AWS Management Console. You can continue using IAM through the console, or you can try one of the other interfaces.
If you want to issue commands with the command line interface (CLI), go to the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide . The guide describes how to set up and use the CLI, describes the commands, and lists available commands by function.
AWS offers SDKs that let you access IAM programmatically to create groups, users, and so on. There are AWS SDKs for Java, .NET, PHP, Android, iOS, and other languages and platforms. For more information, go to Tools for Amazon Services.
