Started to use AWS in order to create back-end services for
My Habit Tracker application. An informative article described that it's not a good practice to use your
Root User to execute daily tasks in
So I created an
IAM User, which I'm going to login with to work on my cloud solution for the application.
First I wanted to create a
Role which has
AdministratorAccess permissions and make my
IAM User to assume that role, but it seemed a bit overkill as it's in the same account. I ended up creating a
IAM Group called
AdminGroup and attached the
AdministratorAccess policy, then added my previously created
IAM User to the group.
Finally I just needed to add an
Account Alias so that I don't need to remember my
12 digit Account ID all the time. An account alias is also useful to make your login link a bit user friendly.
