IAM Examples Using the AWS SDK for Go

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a web service that enables AWS customers to manage users and user permissions in AWS. The service is targeted at organizations with multiple users or systems in the cloud that use AWS products. With IAM, you can centrally manage users, security credentials such as access keys, and permissions that control which AWS resources users can access.

The examples assume you have already set up and configured the SDK (that is, you've imported all required packages and set your credentials and region). For more information, see Getting Started with the AWS SDK for Go and Configuring the AWS SDK for Go.

You can download complete versions of these example files from the aws-doc-sdk-examples repository on GitHub.
