How do I find my AWS Access Key and Secret Access Key?
In order for UserActivation to access your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account automatically, the Access Key and the Secret Access Key are required. The Access Key and the Secret Access Key are not your standard user name and password, but are special tokens that allow our services to communicate with your AWS account by making secure REST or Query protocol requests to the AWS service API.
To find your Access Key and Secret Access Key:
- Log in to your AWS Management Console.
- Click on your user name at the top right of the page.
- Click on the Security Credentials link from the drop-down menu.
- Find the Access Credentials section, and copy the latest Access Key ID.
- Click on the Show link in the same row, and copy the Secret Access Key.
