Configuring security credentials for your AWS user account
You must have your AWS user account access key and the secret access key values before you can configure a data source in the QRadar® platform.
- Log in to your IAM console (https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/).
- Select Users from left navigation pane and then select your user name from the list.
- To create the access keys, click the Security Credentials tab, and in the Access Keys section, click Create access key.
- Download the CSV file that contains the keys or copy and save the keys.
Tip: Save the Access key ID and Secret access key. You need them when you configure a data source in the QRadar platformQRadar Log Insights.
You can view the Secret access key only when it is created.
