Identity Federation for Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an Identity Broker/Token Vendor that provides temporary AWS credentials to Atlassian groups and enables access control to AWS Resources via Identity and Access Management (IAM) Policies.
It exposes these via a REST API for other add-ons, and also provides Single Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console:
AWS Connector management - add account credentials (IAM users) once and configure access to AWS Resources for Atlassian groups with temporary AWS credentials and fine grained control via IAM Policies thereafter.
Single Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console - access AWS Resources directly via menu links and/or a configurable AWS Management Console Login Gadget.
REST API for temporary AWS Credentials - expose AWS Connectors to requesting users with sufficient permissions and allow retrieval of temporary AWS credentials based on such a connector.
