Steps to enable Amazon Braket

  1. Sign in to the Amazon Braket console with your AWS account.

  2. Open the Amazon Braket console.

  3. From the Braket landing page, click Get Started to be taken to the Service Dashboard page. The alert at the top of your service dashboard will walk you through the following three steps:

    1. Creating service-linked roles (SLR)

    2. Enabling access to third-party quantum computers

    3. Creating a new Jupyter notebook instance

In order to use third-party quantum devices, you need to agree to certain conditions regarding data transfer between yourself, AWS, and those devices. The terms and conditions of this agreement are provided on the General tab of the Permissions and settings page in the Amazon Braket console.


Quantum devices that don’t involve any third-parties, such as the Braket local simulators or on-demand simulators, can be used without agreeing to the Enable third-party devices agreement.

Accepting these terms to enable use of third-party devices only needs to be done once per account if you are accessing third-party hardware.
