Using AWS CLI commands to create a user

You may create a user using the AWS CLI command

aws iam create-user --user-name Bob

When you do this, do not forget that you are referencing the iam endpoint rather than the s3 endpoint here. The command would look something like this: 


$ aws iam create-user --user-name mikeotestuser--endpoint-url=
    "User": {
        "UserName": "mikeotestuser",
        "Path": "/",
        "CreateDate": "2019-09-18T16:04:37.031Z",
        "UserId": "1PIFRFBITH1515N0TR3AL",
        "Arn": "arn:aws:iam::100009912345:user/mikeo-test-iam"
