How to federate your AWS account with G Suite

To enable the federation from both sides you have to create an Identity Provider entity in your AWS account.

1. Log into your AWS Account

Open the IAM section, and from the left-side column select Identity Providers.

2. Create a Provider

Click on Create Provider, select SAML in the Provider Type dropdown and choose a name for the Provider (eg. "GSuiteSAML") and upload the metadata.xml file previously downloaded [link tutorial 1].

3. Save

Your AWS account is successfully federated with G Suite. Now you can start to create, modify, and assign roles to Principals.

Follow up to the next tutorial to learn how to create or edit a role to be automatically assumed after Single-Sign-On.
