AWS Architecture

You can import your AWS architecture right into Cacoo to automatically generate completed AWS network diagrams.

Here's how: 

To import your AWS architecture, click the Import icon from the tool menu and select AWS Architecture

There are two ways to integrate with AWS

  • Using an IAM Role
  • Using an IAM user account

Using an IAM Role

In this way, you will need to have an IAM Role, and use the information we provide.

Please refer to this article for more details. Please note that do not select the “Require MFA’” option.

After creating a role, enter your role ARN here.

Using an IAM user account

You will need to have an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user account to use this feature. IAM is a feature in AWS that allows you to manage your AWS users and groups. If you do not have one, you can create an IAM user here.

The top of the popup contains the necessary permissions.

You have to create a new IAM user or attach it to an existing IAM user. You can copy the policy by selecting Copy button.

Please refer to this article for more details

Enter your AWS Access Key and AWS Secret Key from the IAM account that you have created.

Did you know?

Cacoo will not store your IAM user credentials after importing your AWS architecture.

Select a "Region" and confirm the "Layout options" which has the option to add lines to show connections. Click OK button, and Cacoo will import your AWS architecture accordingly.
