Request a Model

Access to Amazon Bedrock foundation models isn’t granted by default. In order to gain access to a foundation model, an IAM user with sufficient permissions needs to request access to it through the console. Once access is provided to a model, it is available for all users in the account.

  • In the Amazon Bedrock management console, select “Model access” in the left navigation pane.

  • The model access page displays a list of available models, their output modality, your access status, and the End User License Agreement (EULA).

2. Activating the Claude Model

Click on “Manage model access”.

Click on “Submit use case details”.

Fill out the required details and click “Submit”.

Wait for the verification.

3. Testing your Setup

Once your model access request is verified, you can test your setup using Chat Playground.

4. Create Access Key :

The My Security Credentials page includes all your security credentials. As an IAM user, you should navigate to this central location (Figure 2) to manage all your credentials.

This page displays all your security credentials. You can manage them from here.
