AWS - Sign In to the AWS Management Console
The standard Amazon login page will only work for UW accounts if you are already signed into your UW NetID within your browser. Visit http://go.wisc.edu/aws
to trigger the NetID login process.
Creating an AWS Account Alias
Amazon IAM user login
If you are creating an AWS IAM user for CLI access please consider using AWS Cloud Shell as an alternative.
NetID login is handled using an identity provider and does not create a native IAM user account within Amazon. IAM users are most frequently used as service accounts to run processes.
If it is necessary sign in to the AWS Management Console using an Amazon IAM
user, open the IAM users sign-in page associated with your account.
This URL is formatted https://<AWS-account-id>.signin.aws.amazon.com/console where <AWS-account-id> is your 12-digit AWS Account Id.
It is recommended that all AWS accounts have at least one IAM user with AdministratorAccess permissions that can be used without requiring NetID authentication. This account should be secured with MFA to comply with UW System authentication standards.
