🚀 Step by Step Guide for Atlan Cloud Deployment on AWS

Step 1: Log in to AWS Console

  • Log in to your AWS account.
  • Ensure the logged-in user has the following policies attached.

Step 2: Create a new IAM user with programmatic access

  • Create a new IAM user,
    For an example - You can create an IAM user as 'atlan-infra'
  • Attach the following EKS permissions to the user.
"Version": "2012-10-17",
"Sid": "VisualEditor0",
"Effect": "Allow",
"Action": "eks:*",
"Resource": "*
  • Save the IAM credentials and User arn.
  • You would be asked to share the IAM Credentials with the Atlan team. It will be used to access kubectl (Kubernetes) to help your developer team debug, diagnose, and troubleshoot any product issues.

Step 3: Create a new key pair on the EC2 section on your AWS Console
[ Note: If you already have an existing key pair, then you can skip this part. ]

  • Visit the EC2 section on AWS Console and generate a new key pair with the name atlan-infra. The key pair is also referred to as KeyName.
  • Once the key pair is created, a file named, atlan-infra.pem will be downloaded.
  • Save the downloaded key pair file for future requirements.
