How to Create a Read Only IAM User

Follow these steps to create a read-only user that Hava can use to visualize your AWS infrastructure. Before you start make sure you are logged in to the AWS console.

  1. From the main console screen click on Identity & Access Management.

  2. From the IAM dashboard select the Users section and then click the Create New Users button.

  3. Enter a unique username for your new user, make sure Generate an access key is checked, and then click the Create button.

  4. You should be notified that your user has been created. You can copy the details from this screen or just click Download to save them.

  5. Click your new user in the list and go to the Managed Policies header under Permissions. Click Attach Policy.

  6. Scroll through the policy list until you find ReadOnlyAccess. Click the checkbox and then click Attach Policy.

  7. Now head back to the Hava homepage and enter the credentials you downloaded earlier to get started!
