We can create IAM users and login as administrators in the AWS cloud. we can manage users in AWS and their role using this service. you can also create a policy and assign them to the users.
How To Create IAM Users Account In AWS Cloud:
You can directly use this link https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/ or type ‘IAM’ in AWS search.
Configure User Access using Username And Password:
Step 1: Find the IAM service.

Now AWS allows you to access the account using two types:
- Programmatic access: you will be provided the Access key ID and secret access key to log in the account.
- AWS Management console: you will be provided a username and password to log in to the account.
Step 2: I will give access to using the AWS Management console. If you want the user to change the password at the next login, you can check the “require password reset”.
Click on Next Permission.

Now I will create a group and named it as an administrator.
I will have to attach a policy to the group. I will use the default AWS policy because I haven’t created yet.
Review your policy and click on Create Group.
Now add the user ‘testing’ to the group administrator.
Click on Add users to group and select the user you want to add.
Now the Administrator group has one user.
This will generate a URL to log in for user ‘testing’ and where to find it.
Identity and Access Management -> Users -> Security Credentials.
Use the console sign-in link to log in to the account.
Now you logged in with the user.
Configure User with Programmatic Access:
