  2. Click on Users and Create a new User Account.

  3. Enter the User name. Make sure that "Programmatic access" is checked.


 

Assign Permissions

 

  1. On the Permissions section click "Assign existing policies directly"




    2. Select the below permissions:
    • AmazonEC2FullAccess
    • AmazonS3FullAcess

3. Review the assigned permissions and select "Create user"

 

 

4. Take note of the Access Key ID and the Secret Access Key.
(copy and paste into a text document or download the csv file)
This information will not be displayed again, so if you don't take note of it now, you will have to create a new Access Key.

 

 

 

Add the Target to Turbonomic

 

1. On the Targets Menu, Select AWS under Cloud Management

 

For Address, you can enter "aws.amazon.com" OR provide any name you prefer to use to identify your AWS account (ie DevTest, Production). This is helpful if you have multiple AWS accounts.

Username: Access Key ID

Password: Access Key Secret
