Getting Started

Configuring AWS for use with CloudCheckr

For CloudCheckr to have the ability to pull data from your AWS account you need to create and enter IAM credentials into CloudCheckr. This page will walk you threw those steps, as well as instructions for enabling Detailed Billing Reports, and CloudTrail, within your AWS account.

Creating and configuring your CloudCheckr accounts

This page shows you how to create accounts within CloudCheckr, connect those accounts to your AWS account, and configure specific settings within the account.

Digging In

User Management

CloudCheckr customers have full control over provisioning and managing user access within their account(s). User access can be configured with specific permissions, rights, and visibility based on the needs and role of the user.


Configuring your GovCloud Account within CloudCheckr is slightly different than configuring a standard account, as GovCloud Accounts can be populated with two different AWS Credentials: one for the account itself, and one for its linked commercial account. This page walks you through adding GovCloud accounts.
