Access Keys for AWS Users

You can create a record for credentials that you plan to use to connect to AWS.

To access AWS resources, you can use AWS account root user credentials or Identity and Access Management (IAM) user credentials. For details, see the AWS Account Root User Credentials vs. IAM User Credentials section in the AWS General Reference.

Since Veeam Backup & Replication uses AWS CLI commands to perform operations in AWS, instead of a user name and password you must specify an AWS access key. AWS access keys are long-term user credentials that consists of two parts: an access key ID and a secret access key. For details, see the Managing Access Keys for IAM Users section in the AWS IAM User Guide.

To create a credentials record:

  1. From the main menu, select Manage Cloud Credentials.
  2. Click Add > Amazon AWS access key.
  3. In the Access key field, enter an access key ID.
  4. In the Secret key field, enter a secret access key. To view the entered secret key, click and hold the eye icon on the right of the field.
  5. In the Description field, enter a description for the created credentials record.

Access Keys for AWS UsersImportant!

It is recommended that the user whose credentials you plan to use to connect to AWS has administrative permissions — access to all AWS actions and resources.
