How to create a new user in AWS


I’m trying to figure out how to create a new user with AWS APIs for Java, but i can’t figure out what i need to do.

So far i managed to write this code that gives me a CreateUserRequest, a CreateAccessKeyRequest and a BasicAWSCredentials with all the fields filled.

I just can’t figure out what to do next. Do I have to use CreateUserResult? How?

EDIT: I’m still working on this today.

I think I need to use the createUser(CreateUserRequest) method of AmazonIdentityManagementClient class. (which returns a CreateUserResult, I was not supposed to instantiate this class manually)

Problem is, I don’t know how to properly initialize this class with the right AWSCredentials (I’m using the account’s AccessKey and SecretAccessKey).
