Getting started

  • ImportantIAM users or roles must have the iotsitewise:DescribePortal permission to sign in to the portal.
  • Note If you use AWS SSO as your identity store, and you're signed in to your AWS Organizations management account, you can choose Create user to create an AWS SSO user. AWS SSO sends the new user an email for them to set their password. You can then assign the user to the portal as an administrator. For more information, see Manage identities in AWS SSO.
  • Note Because only a portal administrator can create projects and assign assets to them, you should specify at least one portal administrator.
