Getting AWS Credentials

Sign up for AWS

  1. Open and click Sign Up.

  2. Follow the on-screen instructions. Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call and entering a PIN using your phone keypad.

Next, create an IAM user and download (or copy) its secret access key.

To create an IAM user

  1. Go to the IAM console (you may need to sign in to AWS first).

  2. Click Users in the sidebar to view your IAM users.

  3. If you don’t have any IAM users set up, click Create New Users to create one.

  4. Select the IAM user in the list that you’ll use to access AWS.

  5. Open the Security Credentials tab, and click Create Access Key.


    You can have a maximum of two active access keys for any given IAM user. If your IAM user has two access keys already, then you’ll need to delete one of them before creating a new key.

  6. On the resulting dialog box, click the Download Credentials button to download the credential file to your computer, or click Show User Security Credentials to view the IAM user’s access key ID and secret access key (which you can copy and paste).


There is no way to obtain the secret access key once you close the dialog box. You can, however, delete its associated access key ID and create a new one.

Next, you should set your credentials in the AWS shared credentials file or in the environment. 


Please make sure your IAM user has the CreatePolicy and DeletePolicy actions available on AWS. This  is required to ensure the proper functionality of KOR.
