Storing AWS Profiles in the AWS Schema Conversion Tool

You can store your AWS credentials in the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (AWS SCT). AWS SCT uses your credentials when you use features that integrate with AWS services. For example, AWS SCT integrates with Amazon S3, AWS Lambda, and AWS Database Migration Service.

AWS SCT asks you for your AWS credentials when you access a feature that requires them. You can store your credentials in the global application settings. When AWS SCT asks for your credentials, you can select the stored credentials.

You can store different sets of AWS credentials in the global application settings. For example, you can store one set of credentials that you use in test scenarios, and a different set of credentials that you use in production scenarios. You can also store different credentials for different AWS regions.
