Step 1: Set up an AWS account and create a User

  • Note An IAM user with administrator permissions has unrestricted access to the AWS services in your account. For information about restricting access to Amazon Rekognition operations, see Amazon Rekognition identity-based policies. The code examples in this guide assume that you have a user with the AmazonRekognitionFullAccess permissions. AmazonS3ReadOnlyAccess is required for examples that access images or videos that are stored in an Amazon S3 bucket. The Amazon Rekognition Video stored video code examples also require AmazonSQSFullAccess permissions. Depending on your security requirements, you might want to use an IAM group that's limited to these permissions. For more information, see Creating IAM Groups.
