Finding the required cloud credentials for AWS (Amazon web services)

For AWS as Your Cloud Service Provider

If you've selected AWS as your cloud service provider, you'll require the following credentials: AWS API Key ID and AWS API Key Secret.

To obtain these credentials, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Navigate to Security Credentials

  • Log in to your AWS Management Console.

  • Click on the profile dropdown in the upper-right corner.

  • Select “Security Credentials” from the dropdown menu.

Step 2: Create Access Keys

  • On the Security Credentials page, find the “Access Keys” section.

  • Click on the “Create New Access Key” button.

Step 3: Acknowledge Best Practices Warning

  • You will see a warning indicating that creating root access keys is not a best practice. While it's recommended to follow best practices, if you still need to create one, check the box next to “I understand that creating a root access key is not a best practice and I still want to create one”.

  • Click on the “Create New Access Key” button.

Step 5: Copy and Safeguard Your Access Keys

  • Copy both the Access Key ID and the Secret Access Key.

  • Important Note: The Secret Access Key will only be displayed once. If you leave the page without copying the Secret Access Key, you will need to generate a new one. Make sure to store it securely.

These credentials will be needed to create an instance on Neverinstall through AWS. Please handle them with caution, as they can provide access to your AWS resources.
