If our goal is configuring AWS using Ansible, the first thing that we need to do is configure our Ansible control node for the job, and provide appropriate credentials. In this hands-on lab, we will configure a new IAM user in the AWS console to allow Ansible to connect to the console programmatically. The credentials need to be protected, so they will be supplied by means of an encrypted Ansible vault.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
