Adding new AWS users

You can add new AWS users to the GovWifi AWS accounts by:

  1. first verifying with the GovWifi developers whether to grant admin or read-only access.

  2. adding the user with the appropriate privileges to the Terraform code that describes GovWifi’s account. You need to get the pull request approved and merged by Reliability Engineering.

  3. deploying the Terraform changes by:

    a. going to the GovWifi account directory Terraform:

     cd terraform/deployments/re-govwifi/account/

    b. using the gds-cli, initialise Terraform if you have not done so previously:

     gds aws govwifi -- terraform init

    c. planning the Terraform project to make sure the changes are what you intend to deploy:

     gds aws govwifi -- terraform plan

    d. applying the Terraform changes if you are happy to proceed:

     gds aws govwifi -- terraform apply
