As always we are trying to stay on top of the new functionality offered by Amazon Web Services to offer the most compelling Amazon S3, CloudFront and IAM client on Windows platform.
Recently it became possible for IAM users to log in to AWS Console to perform subset of tasks specified in the policy. We made an enhancement to CloudBerry Explorer that allows creating Login Profiles for IAM users so that they can log in to the console.
Start IAM Manager, select the user and select Login Profile | Set Password in the context menu.
Specify the password for a user in the opened windows.
Notice the link on the dialog above. This is the link IAM users should open to access AWS Console. It is prefixed with AWS Account ID.
To create the password you will have to click OK and close the dialog, but you can open it again and click the link to go to AWS Console. Now just enter the username and password:
After successful login the user can access S3 account in the console to the extent specified in the policy.
