Setting Up AWS Elemental MediaLive

This chapter provides basic procedures for setting up identities and providing access to AWS Elemental MediaLive. It describes how to create IAM users as administrators for the service, how to create IAM users to access the MediaLive console, and how to set up MediaLive itself as an IAM trusted service.

If you are new to AWS or if you have been using AWS for only a few weeks, we recommend that you read this entire chapter.

If you have more experience using AWS services, you could skip the sections on setting up users. But you should read the section on setting up MediaLive as a trusted service.

This chapter provides steps for a basic setup. For detailed information about the many features of IAM that might be appropriate and useful to your deployment, see the AWS IAM User Guide.
