AWS App Integration

    Set up an Amazon Web Services (AWS) app integration so that your users can sign into this app using the same credentials that they use for LastPass.

    About this task:
    1. Log in and access the LastPass new Admin Console by doing either of the following:
      • While logged in to LastPass, click the active LastPass icon active LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then select Admin Console in the menu.
