Managing users in Deadline Cloud - AWS Deadline Cloud

Managing users in Deadline Cloud

AWS Deadline Cloud uses AWS IAM Identity Center to manage users and groups. IAM Identity Center is a cloud-based single sign-on service that can be integrated with your enterprise single-sign on (SSO) provider. With integration, users can sign in with their company account.

Deadline Cloud enables IAM Identity Center by default, and it is required to set up and use Deadline Cloud. For more information, see the IAM User Guide.

When you choose to add a user or group to a farm, queue, or fleet, Deadline Cloud shows you a list of users or groups from IAM Identity Center to choose from. If the user or group isn't in IAM Identity Center, you can open the IAM Identity Center console to create a user or group. Then, you can return to the Deadline Cloud console to add the user or group to the farm, queue, or fleet.
