Amazon Role ARNs that are listed in the IAM Roles Administration
table (see Figure 4.37) will be available on the Role
drop-down listbox of the Add User
dialog. Please note that before adding a Role ARN to the table you must define the role in the AWS management console, and the trust policy of the role must include the External Id
of the Ark console.
You can use the Add Role
dialog to add an entry to the table. To locate the information required by the Add Role
dialog, connect to the Amazon Management dashboard, and navigate to the Roles
page. Select the role you wish to add from the list to open the Summary
dialog; then, select the Trust relationships
tab to display the information required (circled in red in Figure 4.38).
Use fields on the Add Role
dialog to provide details from the Amazon management console:
|Provide the Role ARN
from the Summary
dialog header in the Role Arn
|Provide the Value
from the Trust relationships
tab in the External Id
Click the Apply
button to verify the information, and add the entry to the table.
