AWS Account Identity

You will need to create an identity in AWS before kore can assume roles to use any Kore feature enabled for any AWS account.

Use one of the following methods:

  • Preferred: If you run Kore on an EKS cluster in AWS use kore setup cloudidentity. See kore setup cloudidentity.
  • If you run Kore on GCP, Azure or on Prem and want to use multicloud to build clusters on AWS, use kore create cloudcredentials. See kore create cloudcredentials.

When Kore is installed on AWS no credentials need to be stored. This is inherently more secure.


Normally only a single identity in AWS is required for Kore. The single AWS identity can assume the access required for any specific account without creating additional credentials. This removes the risks associated with creating more credentials.
