Configuring AWS - Key

Allow TotalCloud access to your AWS account using an IAM User. After syncing, you can add the permissions required for each workflow as inline policies within the User

You can configure your AWS account on TotalCloud using either a Role or Key.

Using a Key

  1. Go to IAM from the AWS management console.

2. Click Users, and then select Add user.

3. Enter a user name and then select programmatic access as the access type.

4. Click Next: Permissions. Choose 'Attach Existing Policies' and search for 'ReadOnlyAccess'. This policy will let TotalCloud read your resources but not perform any action. You can attach other valid policies as well. Without at least one valid policy, syncing the role with TotalCloud will fail.

5. Click Next: Tags. Adding tags is optional, so you can leave that be.

5. Click: Review and review your configurations. Click Create user.

6. Copy the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key from the User page.

7. Now, log in to your Totalcloud account. Navigate to the accounts page-

https://app.totalcloud.io/accounts/aws/user

8. Click on Sync Account/Sync Another Account button.

9. Under Select an Access Type, choose Key.

10. Paste the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.

11. You will get a notification when the account is validated.

In order to ensure that you have seamless AWS integration, give the IAM getuser permission to your User. Alternatively, add the following code as an Inline Policy:

{
"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Statement": [
{
"Sid": "1580112979752",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": [
"iam:getuser"
],
"Resource": "*"
}
]
}
