Activate Access to the AWS Website

In order to grant your IAM users access to your account's billing information and tools, you must activate the functionality. Follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console with your root account credentials (the email and password that you used to create your AWS account). Don't sign in with your IAM user credentials.

    The AWS Management Console home page opens.

  2. In the top navigation bar, open the drop-down menu for your account name, and then choose My Account.

    The Billing home page opens.

  3. Scroll down to IAM User Access to Billing Information, and click Edit.

    An Activate IAM access area opens.

  4. Select the check box and click Update.

    You can now use IAM policies to control which pages a user can access.
