How to Create, Edit and Delete Access Keys for IAM User
Starting from version 3.1.3 S3 Browser supports Access Keys management for IAM users.
Bucket Sharing Wizard allows you automatically create IAM users, Access Keys and IAM policies. But for security reasonse you can view Secret Access Key only right after creation.
If you didn't wrote down Secret Access Key after creation, there is no way to restore it later. Instead you may create new Access Key ID and Secret Access Key.
