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 AWS Account within CloudCheckr is slightly different than configuring a standard commercial AWS account because GovCloud accounts write their Detailed Billing Reports to a commercial AWS account. To configure CloudCheckr for an AWS account, you will need to setup two different AWS Credentials: one for the account itself, and one for its linked commercial account. This page walks you through adding GovCloud accounts.
