Create a User - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Create a User

Typically, you create a new user identity for an AWS user only if a person does not have an existing identity. If the person already has a user identity, modify their access instead.

To create a user

  1. Make sure that you know which group (Step 4: Create the Groups) that you want to add each user to. Make sure that you have already created this group (Step 4: Create the Groups).

  2. Sign in to the AWS Management Console as an administrator, and open the IAM console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Users, and then choose Add user.

  4. On the Add User page, for User name, enter a name for the user.

    For Access type, select AWS Management Console access.

    For Console password, select Custom password and enter a password.

    For Require password reset, we recommend that you select the check box.

  5. Choose Next: Permissions.

  6. On the Set permissions for user page, choose Add user to group.

  7. Select the check box for the appropriate group for this user, and then choose Next: Tags.

  8. Add tags if your organization has a policy to create tags for users. For more information, see Tagging AWS Elemental MediaLive Resources. Then choose Next: Review.

  9. Choose Create user.

  10. Optionally, choose Send email to send an email to this user. Your local email client opens with a draft email that includes the user name and sign-in URL.

  11. Choose Close to return to the navigation pane.

  12. Provide the user with their password (it is not included in the generated email). You must provide the password in a way that complies with your organization's security guidelines.

The following example assumes that you created three users and associated all of them with the same group, medialivebasicusers.
