About this Hands-on Lab

In this hands-on lab scenario, you are a project manager in the IT Department of Cloud Hills Hotel (CHH). CHH will be developing a new website and deploying it to Amazon Web Services (AWS). You’ve hired a team of developers and need to give them access to the CHH AWS account.

In order to provide access and ensure the proper security measures are in place, you will use AWS Identity & Access Management (IAM). You will create new user accounts for the developers, define a new developer group, and assign permissions for the developer group using policies.
