The following topics are applicable to AWS resource management:
Providing AWS Security Credentials— In order to provide temporary AWS security credentials for other apps via a REST API and single sign-on (SSO) to the AWS Management Console, you need to provide long term AWS security credentials within Identity Federation for AWS.
Configuring the AWS Client— The AWS API is eventually consistent only and also exhibits a customer specific dynamic throttling policy, both of which require respective retry logic to be in place. While the facilitated AWS SDK for Java features an exponential backoff strategy, it defaults to 2-3 retries only (accumulating to a retry window of up to ~4 seconds), which has proven to be too low for the use case at hand. The values are configurable accordingly, with an increased default of 7 retries (accumulating to a retry window of up to ~1 minute).
Enabling Labs Features— Labs features are giving you a sneak preview of new features coming in future releases of Identity Federation for AWS. You can enable/disable each feature individually at any time.
