CloudBeaver Enterprise Edition also allows you to configure AWS and SSO users.
AWS and Federated users
When a user is authorized to the CloudBeaver EE instance via AWS IAM or Federated authentication for the first time, a corresponding user is automatically created within the application, with the 'User' team assigned by default. Post-creation, the administrator can alter the user's team as needed.
It is important to note that administrators cannot create new AWS or Federated users directly within the application. The system is designed to work with existing, legitimate AWS and Federated users.
CloudBeaver AWS exclusively supports configuration for AWS and Federated users, as it does not provide local access. As a consequence, local users cannot be created within the Product environment.
Remember, user management is an important aspect of maintaining system security. Always ensure that users are only granted access and permissions necessary for their tasks.
