Getting AWS Credentials

NB. This page is relevant to Ministry of Justice employees. External collaborators should review Working as a Collaborator

You can obtain temporary AWS credentials to use the AWS CLI or other command line tools.

To have access to your AWS credentials you will need to be a member of the GitHub team specified when the environment was created

Note - you do not need to obtain AWS credentials to deploy infrastructure, this is done via GitHub Workflows (see deploying your infrastructure).

If you need credentials to make an application deployment, a CI user is created as part of the initial account set up, see here for obtaining the credentials for that user.

  1. Log in to the AWS Console

  2. Select the account you wish to access programmatically

  3. Choose the Command line or programmatic access options

  4. Follow the instructions on screen to retrieve your credentials.
