This section discusses the various credential methods available for AWS integration with the NSX Advanced Load Balancer.

When deploying NSX Advanced Load Balancer within Amazon Web Services (AWS), the installation wizard prompts for input of credential information. You are not required to enter AWS Secret and Access key credentials. The credentials can be entered in either of the following forms:

  • Identity and Access Management (IAM) roles

  • AWS customer account key

  • Use Cross-Account AssumeRole

These credential methods are used during AWS cloud configuration.
