​How do I delete an Amazon S3 access key when the Cloud Storage migration project is complete?​

Ans​wer​:

 

Deactivate or delete the Amazon Web Services (AWS) secret access key once the Cloud Storage migration project is complete. This ensures the secret access key cannot be used to access the AWS account.

Follow the steps below to delete a secret access key for an AWS account:

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the IAM console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Users.
  3. Add a checkmark next to the name of the desired user, and then choose User Actions from the top.
  4. Click on Manage Access Keys.
