AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM)

How to Create, Edit, Delete Access Keys for IAM User

Since version 3.1.3 S3 Browser supports managing Access Keys for IAM users.

Previously Bucket Sharing Wizard was used to automatically create IAM users, access keys and IAM policies. But, as you probably noticed, you can view Secret Access Key only right after creation. This is how AWS IAM designed to provide you better security.

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.

Currently AWS IAM allows you to create up to the 2 access key pairs per user. So, before creating new access keys, you may need to delete existing ones.

Another reason why you may need access keys management - you may need sometimes to temporarily disable access keys for a particular user.

To manage access keys assigned to an IAM User:

1. Click Tools -> Access Manager (IAM)

How to open IAM Manager

Click Tools -> Access Manager (IAM)

2. Select the user whose access keys you want to view or edit.

3. Right-click and choose Manage access keys..

To create new Access keys, click Create new keys.
