AWS Authentication Connector

Content Type: Module
Categories: Authentication,Connectors,AWS


The AWS Authentication Connector provides a way to authenticate with AWS. Authentication can be considered as first step before calling services like Amazon S3, SQS, SNS etc..

There are two types of credentials that can be used through the AWS Authentication connector:

  • Static credentials – Based on AWS “Access key ID” and “Secret Access Key”
  • Temporary credentials – Based on short lived session token, more secured and recommended way. 

In addition to provide authentication credentials, this module also provides utility to generate SigV4Headers which are required to send while calling AWS APIs using REST calls. 


Please see the documentation on Mendix Docs.
