AWS Integration: API

Before you can onboard an AWS account to Snyk via the API, you need access to the AWS account and associated credentials with permissions to create a read-only Identity and Access Management (IAM) role. See the prerequisites on the AWS integration page.

The steps follow to onboard an AWS account via the API:

  1. Download an infrastructure as code (IaC) template: to give Snyk permissions to scan your account.

  2. Create an AWS IAM role: using the template you downloaded.

When you have completed the steps, you will be able to do the following:

  • View the cloud configuration issues Snyk finds. See Cloud and IaC+ issues.

  • Prioritize your vulnerabilities with cloud context.
