Updating AWS Connection Credentials

About Updating AWS VPC Connection Credentials

If you create a new access key and secret access key to connect to the AWS VPC, you must update the connection credentials in CDO. Update the credentials in the AWS console and then update the credentials from the CDO console using the procedure below. See Managing Access Keys for IAM Users or Creating, Disabling, and Deleting Access Keys for Your AWS Account Root User for more information. 

You cannot change the access key or secret access key from CDO; you must manually manage the connection credentials from the AWS console or the AWS CLI console. 

Note: If you have multiple AWS VPCs onboaded to your CDO tenant, you must update the credentials for one at a time.

Update AWS VPC Connection Credentials

  1. Click Devices & Services.
  2. Filter and search for the AWS VPC whose connection credentials you want to update, and select it.  
  3. In the Device Actions pane, click update_credentials.png.
  4. Enter the new access key and secret access key you want to use to connect to the AWS VPC.

Note: If CDO fails to sync the device, the connectivity status in CDO may show "Invalid Credentials." If that's the case, you may have tried to use an invalid username and password combination. Confirm the keys are correct. See Understanding and Getting Your Security Credentials for more information.
