AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables you to manage access to AWS services and resources securely. Using IAM, you can create and manage AWS users and groups, and use permissions to allow and deny their access to AWS resources. IAM is a feature of your AWS account offered at no additional charge.

If you are an AWS account owner (root user), you can use your account email to sign in to this page. If an administrator added you to an AWS account, then you are an IAM user. Your administrator should have given you a 12-digit account ID or an account alias to sign in below.

Describes how AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) users can sign into your AWS account using a special URL.

By default new users are created with NO access to any AWS services - they can only login to the AWS console. Permission must be explicitly granted to allow a user to access an AWS service. IAM users are individuals who have been granted access to an AWS account.

Yes, users login through cognito will assume roles without sharing IAM users. You have to implement your handling of AWS API access for each user. On the other hand, if you need to directly allow users to login to web console, may be using Active Directory or etc, then you can do it without Cognito, directly using IAM Roles and federation.
