If you want your federated users to be able to access only the AWS Management Console, using AWS Directory Service provides similar capabilities compared to using a third-party identity management solution. End users are able to sign in using their existing corporate credentials and access the AWS Management Console. Because AWS Directory Service is a managed service, customers do not need to set up or manage federation infrastructure, but rather need to create an AD Connector directory to integrate with their on-premises directory. If you are interested in providing your federated users access to AWS APIs, use a third-party offering, or deploy your own proxy server.
