Using IAM account aliases - AWS SDK for Java

You can now use the Amazon S3 Transfer Manager (Developer Preview) in the AWS SDK for Java 2.x for accelerated file transfers. Give it a try and let us know what you think! By the way, the AWS SDK for Java team is hiring software development engineers!

Using IAM account aliases

If you want the URL for your sign-in page to contain your company name or other friendly identifier instead of your AWS account ID, you can create an alias for your AWS account.

Note

AWS supports exactly one account alias per account.

Create an account alias

To create an account alias, call the IamClient’s createAccountAlias method with a CreateAccountAliasRequest object that contains the alias name.

Imports

import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.CreateAccountAliasRequest; import software.amazon.awssdk.regions.Region; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.IamClient; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.IamException;

Code

public static void createIAMAccountAlias(IamClient iam, String alias) { try { CreateAccountAliasRequest request = CreateAccountAliasRequest.builder() .accountAlias(alias) .build(); iam.createAccountAlias(request); System.out.println("Successfully created account alias: " + alias); } catch (IamException e) { System.err.println(e.awsErrorDetails().errorMessage()); System.exit(1); } }

See the complete example on GitHub.

List account aliases

To list your account’s alias, if any, call the IamClient’s listAccountAliases method.

Note

The returned ListAccountAliasesResponse supports the same isTruncated and marker methods as other AWS SDK for Java list methods, but an S account can have only one account alias.

Imports

import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.IamException; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.ListAccountAliasesResponse; import software.amazon.awssdk.regions.Region; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.IamClient;

Code

public static void listAliases(IamClient iam) { try { ListAccountAliasesResponse response = iam.listAccountAliases(); for (String alias : response.accountAliases()) { System.out.printf("Retrieved account alias %s", alias); } } catch (IamException e) { System.err.println(e.awsErrorDetails().errorMessage()); System.exit(1); } }

see the complete example on GitHub.

Delete an account alias

To delete your account’s alias, call the IamClient’s deleteAccountAlias method. When deleting an account alias, you must supply its name using a DeleteAccountAliasRequest object.

Imports

import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.DeleteAccountAliasRequest; import software.amazon.awssdk.regions.Region; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.IamClient; import software.amazon.awssdk.services.iam.model.IamException;

Code

public static void deleteIAMAccountAlias(IamClient iam, String alias ) { try { DeleteAccountAliasRequest request = DeleteAccountAliasRequest.builder() .accountAlias(alias) .build(); iam.deleteAccountAlias(request); System.out.println("Successfully deleted account alias " + alias); } catch (IamException e) { System.err.println(e.awsErrorDetails().errorMessage()); System.exit(1); } System.out.println("Done"); }

See the complete example on GitHub.
