To ensure the security of your AWS account, the secret access key is accessible only during key and user creation. You must save the key (for example, in a text file) if you want to be able to access it again. If a secret key is lost, you can delete the access keys for the associated user and then create new keys.

I've configured access to the AWS Management Console for my Active Directory users using federation. How do I give users the same access for the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) using Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS)?

Short Description

If you enable SAML 2.0 federated users to access the AWS Management Console, then users who require programmatic access still require an access key and a secret key. To get the access key ID and secret access key for an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user, you can configure AWS CLI, or get temporary credentials for federated users to access AWS CLI.

Before you can give access to a federated user, you must:

  • Enable federation to AWS using Windows Active Directory, ADFS, and SAML 2.0.
  • Use version 3.1.31.0 or higher of the AWS Tools for PowerShell, or install v2.36 or higher of the AWS SDK for Python to your local workstation.
  • Use a minimal credentials file .aws/credentials.

Resolution

If your identity provider (IdP) is configured to work with Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA), NTLM, or Kerberos (which are the default for AD FS 2.0), then see Solution 1 or Solution 2. If your IdP is configured to work with Form-Based Authentication (which is the default for AD FS 3.0 and 4.0), see Solution 3.

Solution 1: PowerShell for AD FS using IWA (PowerShell 2.0)

1. Import the Windows PowerShell module by running the following command:

2. Set a variable for your AD FS endpoint by running a command similar to the following:

Note: This includes the complete URL of your AD FS login page and the login uniform resource name (URN) for AWS.

3. Set the SAML endpoint by running a command similar to the following:

Note: By default, the AD FS 2.0 AuthenticationType is set to NTLM. If you don't specify a value for the AuthenticationType in the AWS Tools Cmdlet above, then AWS Tools uses Kerberos by default.

4. Use the stored endpoint settings to authenticate with the AD FS IdP to obtain a list of roles that the user can then assume by using one of the following methods:

Use the credentials of the user who is currently logged into the workstation.

Or:

Specify credentials of an Active Directory user.

5. If multiple roles are available, you are prompted to make a selection for the role that you want to assume. Enter the alphabetic character into your terminal session similar to the following:

6. Confirm that users can access the AWS CLI using the federated credentials and the specified profile by running a command similar to the following:

Solution 2: Python for AD FS using IWA (default for AD FS 2.0)

1. Install the following modules to Python:

2. Copy the script from the blog post How to Implement Federated API and CLI Access Using SAML 2.0 and AD FS.

3. Open the script, set your preferred Region and output format, replace adfs.example.com with your URL, and then enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your AD FS server.

Note: If you have an alternate file path for your AWS credentials file, specify the file path.

4. Save your changes, execute the file, and then populate the following fields as they appear:

5. After you successfully federated, execute commands using the newly configured SAML profile using the --profile parameter in your commands.

Solution 3: Python for AD FS using form-based authentication (default for AD FS 3.0 and 4.0)
