Create IAM resources for AWS cloud accounts
For most Redis Cloud Flexible or Annual subscriptions deployed to Amazon Web Services (AWS), we manage the supporting infrastructure for you in dedicated AWS accounts.
You can manage this infrastructure with your own AWS accounts.
You’ll want these accounts to be separate from any AWS application accounts and you’ll need to create dedicated identity and access management (IAM) resources to allow us to manage the infrastructure.
In the new AWS account, you need to create:
- An instance role
- A user with an access key
- A role that grants AWS console access
Save the access key in a secure location so that you can enter it when you register the cloud account with your the Redis Cloud subscription.
We use the provided credentials to configure your AWS environment and provision required resources.
To make sure that we can manage your AWS resources, you must not:
- Manually change the configurations of provisioned resources, such as security groups
- Manually stop or terminate provisioned instances
For help creating an AWS user, see the AWS IAM documentation.
You can use one of the following tools to create IAM resources:
