Content Controller


IAM manages credentials for you AWS account. It can create users, API credentials, etc. We’ll need to provision an IAM role for the next few steps. It’s easiest to create this role and attach it to your Ansible EC2 instance, however you can also create API credentials and configure boto on your Ansible box manually. We’ll create a role here, and then we’ll attach it to the Ansible box in the next section.

Go to Services -> IAM
