Federation process example - AMS Advanced Onboarding Guide

Federation process example

This example uses Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS); however, any technology that supports AWS IAM Federation is supported. For more information on AWS-supported IAM federation, see IAM Partners and Identity Providers and Federation. Your CSDM will help you through this process, which involves a joint effort with your AD team and AMS.

For detailed information on integrating SAML for API access, refer to this AWS blog, How to Implement Federated API and CLI Access Using SAML 2.0 and AD FS.


For an example that installs the AMS CLI and SAML, see Appendix: ActiveDirectory Federation Services (ADFS) claim rule and SAML settings.
