Specifying an IAM Role for Service Account

Specifying an IAM Role for your Service Account

In the previous step, we created the IAM role that associated with a service account named iam-test in the cluster and this has already been done for you with the service account you specified when creating the role.

Be sure your service account iam-test exists:
kubectl get sa
NAME SECRETS AGE
default 1 85m
iam-test 1 44m
Make sure your service account with the ARN of the IAM role is annotated:
kubectl describe sa iam-test


Name:                iam-test
