Vaulting IAM user Access Key Secrets

When you create an IAM user access key, the Secret Access Key is lost once the Create Access Key dialog is closed. Centrify PAS allows you to vault up to two IAM user Access Key Secrets so you never misplace them. Additionally, Centrify PAS extends policy to those access key secrets.

To vault or update a vaulted IAM user Access Key Secret

  1. In the Admin Portal, navigate to Resources > Cloud Providers. Select an existing cloud provider.
  2. Navigate to IAM Users and select an existing IAM user account.
  3. Navigate to Settings. Here, you enter the AWS Account ID for Account ID. Add a name and description if you wish and click Save.

Note:   To quickly access this IAM user account in the AWS console, select Open AWS Management Console page in the top-right corner of the page as seen in the image above.
