Mounting an EFS Instance From an External Account
Only First time:
- Send Thaneer your AWS account ID and he will add you to the trusted entities for the IAM role that he has created.
- If you don't have one already, create an IAM user. Permissions aren't relevant since you will be switching roles as soon as you sign in as the IAM user, but you may want to omit any permissions so that you don't accidentally create an instance before switching roles.
- When you are signed in as an IAM user under your root account, go to this link, enter a display name, (pick your favorite color), and click "Switch Role" https://signin.aws.amazon.com/switchrole?roleName=mPowerEFSRole&account=389689814525
