IAM identity provider - Amazon IAM Identity Center
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 (PDF).

IAM identity provider

When you add single sign-on access to an Amazon Web Services account, IAM Identity Center creates an IAM identity provider in each Amazon Web Services account. An IAM identity provider helps keep your Amazon Web Services account secure because you don't have to distribute or embed long-term security credentials, such as access keys, in your application.

Repair the IAM identity provider

If you accidentally delete or modify your identity provider, you must manually reapply your user and group assignments. Reapplying your user and group assignments recreates the identity provider. For more information, see:
