Use the AWS signature to add authentication information to your requests to the Amazon Web Services. It adds authentication information to the Authorization header.

ReadyAPI supports only Signature Version 4.

ReadyAPI stores the AWS Signature authentication profiles in the Authorization manager, so you can later apply them to other requests or test steps. Also, you can use such profiles to specify different authorization settings in various environments.
