AWS Integration with On-Prem Active Directory


I am very new to AWS Cloud and my ask is:

  • to use federation for all types of AWS Access
  • No local accounts will be created in AWS
  • All accounts and permissions must be created and managed through on-prem Active Directory

Is there any document that explains the process and best practices to achieve this?

I have a landing zone with multiple accounts, what are the best practices to create permissions sets, and accounts and map them with AD Groups?
