@nebulon Thanks. Ohh, I was so close last night. Your post gave me the courage to plunge back in. The username I gave to the user who owns the policy was a really wierd choice several years ago. So when I went to the aws users page, I didn't think of exploring there. Also the ID and secret were in a file on my local machine, filed well with a good file name. Last night I just wasn't careful in looking for it. So I'm all good now.
