AWS Error Code invalidaccesskeyid

by | Sep 30, 2021

Stuck with AWS Error Code invalidaccesskeyid? We can help you.

Recently, one of our customers wanted to access his Amazon S3 bucket using the AWS CLI, an AWS SDK, or his own application.

However, when sending a request to the bucket, he got an AWS Access Key Id error.

Here, at Bobcares, we assist our customers with several AWS queries as part of our AWS Support Services.

Today, let us see how our techs fix this.


AWS Error Code invalidaccesskeyid

The AWS Access Key Id you provided does not exist in our records.

This error message indicates that there’s an issue with the credentials that we use.

We may have deleted the access key. Or there is a chance for deletion of the AWS IAM role or the user.

To resolve, we check the credentials that we use.

To list the stored access keys in AWS CLI, we run:

aws configure list

In addition, to get details on the IAM credentials we’re using to call the API, we run:

aws sts get-caller-identity

In case of errors, we make sure that we’re using the most recent version of the AWS CLI.

On the other hand, if we are using AWS SDK, we run the GetCallerIdentity action for the SDK that we’re using.

Once we receive the credentials, we verify if they are valid.

In case we use the IAM role, our Support Techs recommend steps below:

  1. Initially, we open the IAM console.
  2. Then we select, Roles.
  3. Here, we can verify the IAM role list. If it is not in there, then we create a new IAM role.

On the other hand, for an IAM user, follow these steps:

  1. Open the IAM console.
  2. Select Users.
  3. Here, we verify the IAM role list. If it is not in there, then we create a new IAM user.
  4. If the IAM user is there, we select the user name to view its Summary page.
  5. Then we select the Security credentials tab, and then check whether the associated Access keys appear.
  6. If the access keys are missing or inactive, then we must create new access keys or activate the keys.
