Setting up an AWS User

Here you will find the steps required to set up an AWS user for running the Audit Trail Configuration application.

It is possible to simply use the API key and secret for the root user. This is definitely the simplest solution but it is equivalent to using the Supervisor user in Raiser’s Edge and not recommended by AWS.

Instead, it is a better practice to create a user specifically for this purpose, that only has the rights that they actually need.
