AWS Authentication Connector

Category: Connectors
Subcategory: AWS


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”

- Session 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. SigV4Headers are required to send while calling and AWS API using REST. 

 For more details refer documentation.


Please see the AWS Authentication page in the Mendix documentation for details.
