Amazon QuickSight API Access Keys in AmazonQuickSightClient() call

I am using the C#.NET code example here Getting started with the Amazon QuickSight API - Amazon QuickSight

The example uses an AccessKey and SecretAccessKey when creating new AmazonQuickSightClient. However, I cannot find any documentation on how I get those access keys. Where do I find documentation on getting these keys so that I can make calls to QuickSight:

using System;
using Amazon.QuickSight.Model;
using Amazon.QuickSight;

namespace DotNetQuickSightSDKTest
class Program
private static readonly string AccessKey = “insert_your_access_key”;
private static readonly string SecretAccessKey = “insert_your_secret_key”;
private static readonly string AccountID = “AWS_account_ID”;
private static readonly string Namespace = “default”; // leave this as default

    static void Main(string[] args)
        var client = new AmazonQuickSightClient(

I found it in the AWS Management Console under ‘Identity and Access Management (IAM)’.

Glad you were able to find what you were looking for.
