Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) now reports the time stamp when an IAM user last used their access key in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.

IAM also provides you with the region and the Amazon Web Services service that was accessed. These details complement password last used data to provide a more thorough picture of when an IAM user was last active, enabling you to rotate old keys and remove inactive users with greater confidence. You can view access key last used data interactively in the IAM console or programmatically via the API/CLI/SDK.
