Integrating SailPoint and Amazon Web Services

Revised Date: 25 March 2024

The SailPoint Amazon Web Services (AWS) Connector enables organizations to extend existing identity lifecycle and compliance management capabilities within SailPoint to mission-critical AWS IaaS environments to provide a central point of visibility, administration, and governance across the entire enterprise. This includes policy discovery and access history across all organization accounts, provisioning AWS entities and objects, access review and certification, and federated access support.

This document is designed to give specific information about the requirements and field definitions needed to get a working instance of an Amazon Web Services (AWS) source.


If you want to enable additional cloud governance features (for example, visualization of effective access) for your AWS Cloud Infrastructure, you must have a CIEM license. If you already have a CAM license, no additional license purchase is required. Contact your SailPoint Customer Success Manager to request access and for more information.

For more information on the additional features supported with cloud governance, refer to the table on the Supported Features page.
