Click on “My Account/Console” and select “Security Credentials”.
Select “Get Started with IAM Users”.
Click “Create New Users”.
Enter a user name, e.g. ObjectiveFS, and click “Create”.
Click “Show User Security Credentials” once the user is created.
The “Access Key ID” and “Secret Access Key” are what you need to create your ObjectiveFS filesystem.
You should also download these credentials and store it in a safe place. You will need these credentials when you start up another instance of ObjectiveFS.
Select “Groups” on the left hand menu bar, and click on “Create New Group”.
Enter a group name, e.g. S3All.
Note: if you have multiple buckets and would like to restrict ObjectiveFS to only one S3 bucket, please see how to grant access to only one S3 bucket using AWS IAM policy.
Scroll down to select the “Amazon S3 Full Access” in the Set Permissions step.
Click continue on the next step, and select “Create Group”.
Finally, add the newly created user to this group. Click “Add Users to Group”.
Then, select the user created in step 5 and click “Add Users”.
You can now use your “Access Key ID” and “Secret Access Key” to run ObjectiveFS.
