Create your AWS Builder ID - AWS Sign-In

Create your AWS Builder ID

You create your AWS Builder ID when you sign up for one of the AWS tools and services that use it. Sign up with your email address, name, and password as part of the sign-up process for an AWS tool or service.

Your password must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Passwords are case-sensitive.

  • Passwords must be between 8 and 64 characters in length.

  • Passwords must contain at least one character from each of the following four categories:

    • Lowercase letters (a-z)

    • Uppercase letters (A-Z)

    • Numbers (0-9)

    • Non-alphanumeric characters (~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/)

  • The last three passwords cannot be reused.

  • Passwords that are publicly known through a data set leaked from a third party cannot be used.


Tools and services that use AWS Builder ID direct you to create and use your AWS Builder ID when needed.
