Creating IAM roles - Amazon Identity and Access Management
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

Creating IAM roles

To create a role, you can use the Amazon Web Services Management Console, the Amazon CLI, the Tools for Windows PowerShell, or the IAM API.

If you use the Amazon Web Services Management Console, a wizard guides you through the steps for creating a role. The wizard has slightly different steps depending on whether you're creating a role for an Amazon service, for an Amazon account, or for a federated user.
