  • Single Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console – Grant your team SSO access to AWS accounts via the AWS Management Console Login menu
  • Share AWS services and resources with your team
    • Use the AWS Resources macro to share deep links with optional Single-Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console
    • Use the AWS Resources blueprint to share and document your AWS resources with deep links and optional Single Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console
  • REST API for temporary AWS security credentials – GET temporary AWS security credentials for Confluence apps via the REST API (Token Vendor)

Create deep links to the AWS Management Console with the AWS Resources macro

AWS Resources macro configuration You can now use the AWS Resources macro to create deep links with optional Single-Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console.

You can either quickly get a default link to the AWS Management Console, or configure the macro to provide a custom deep link with SSO.

Create dashboards to document AWS resources with the AWS Resources blueprint

AWS Resources blueprint page templates You can now use the AWS Resources blueprint to provide dashboards to share and document your AWS resources with deep links and optional Single Sign-On (SSO) to the AWS Management Console.

The blueprint currently provides two page templates:

  • AWS resources – Share deep links with optional SSO to AWS resources with your team
  • AWS account – Document an AWS account and provide SSO links for your team

Specify a destination URL when using the AWS Management console Single Sign-On (SSO) API

You can now specify an URL as the destination query parameter when using GET on the /rest/identity-federation-for-aws/2.0/connectors/{id}/console/url resource to create a deep link URL to the AWS Management Console with Single Sign-On (SSO).
