Getting Started - AWS Snowcone User Guide

Getting Started

This section provides general instructions for creating and completing your first AWS Snowcone job in the AWS Snow Family Management Console. For an overview of the AWS Snowcone device, see How AWS Snowcone Works.

This getting started documentation assumes that you use the AWS Snow Family Management Console to create your job, and you use the Snowball Edge client or the AWS OpsHub for Snow Family application to unlock the AWS Snowcone device. If you'd rather create your job programmatically with more options for the jobs you're creating, you can use the job management API. For more information, see AWS Snowcone API Reference.

Before you can get started, you need to create an AWS account and an administrator user in AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). For more information, see Setting Up AWS for AWS Snowcone.

To get started with AWS Snowcone, see Creating an AWS Snowcone Job.
