In this blog post, I will show you how to create an AWS IAM custom sign-in URL and make it easier for users to log in.
By default, when you create an IAM user in AWS, AWS will create a custom URL for your users to log in.
The URL is made of numbers and almost impossible to remember; however, to make things easier, AWS offers the option to create an alias.
You can make the alias letter only as you will see soon.
To get started and change my sign-in URL, I will open the Aws management console and log in as admin.
From the console, I will click on IAM, and from the IAM dashboard click on Customize as shown in the figure below.
I will go ahead and create a simple, alias, which is easy to remember.
After creating the alias, it will appear in the sign-in link as shown below.
Note: The original URL will still work.
I no longer require the URL, I can delete it, and it will no longer work.
