To create users who can access AWS Elemental MediaTailor

  1. In the navigation pane of the IAM console, choose Users, and then choose Add user.

  2. For User name, enter the name that the user will use to sign in to MediaTailor.

  3. Select the check box next to AWS Management Console access, select Custom password, and then enter the new user's password in the box. You can optionally select Require password reset to force the user to create a password the next time the user signs in.

  4. Choose Next: Permissions.

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

  6. Modify the permissions for the users in the group list. Choose the group with the appropriate attached policy. Remember that permissions levels are as follows:
