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 log source in QRadar®.


  1. Log in to your IAM console.
  2. Select Users from left navigation pane and then select your user name from the list.
  3. To create the access keys, click the Security Credentials tab, and in the Access Keys section, click Create access key.
  4. 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 log source in QRadar.

    You can view the Secret access key only when it is created.
