  1. Add AWS Account in SAFE
  2. Confirm AWS Account
  3. Scan AWS accounts and view assessment results


Sign In to the SAFE as an admin.

Step 1: Add AWS Account

SAFE allows users to add "Individual Account" and "Member Account".

Step 2: Confirm AWS accounts

All the onboarded AWS accounts will be available on the AWS account management Page. 

  • Unconfirmed Accounts: Upon successful configuration of the AWS account, the system auto-discovers the AWS account and displays it under unconfirmed accounts.
  • Confirmed Accounts: Users need to confirm all the added AWS accounts available under unconfirmed accounts to scan it. Once the user confirms the account, it will be displayed under the confirmed account.  

Refer to Confirm AWS Account.
