In my previous blog, titled ‘What is IAM Access Analyzer‘, I have introduced the IAM Access Analyzer and focused mainly on why we should use it and its benefits. In this article, I will explain ‘How to use the Access Analyzer in IAM‘.
Go to AWS Console, and select IAM Service
Select Access Analyzer under Access reports on the left panel
Click Create Analyzer
Specify a Name of your analyser and click Create Analyzer
Select All to view all the external principals that are attached to your AWS account
When you click any Finding ID you can see the complete information about that principal along with the permissions that are granted to that principal
