Wrong AWS credentials being used / Unable to access settings page to clear AWS credentials

If you are experiencing AWS authentication errors despite having provided the correct AWS credentials in your project or context environment variables, etc (e.g. AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID or other means as documented in https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-configure-envvars.html), this may be caused by AWS credentials previously set for the project in a legacy settings page that has now been removed from our UI, as part of the EOL (End-of-Life) of CircleCI 1.0

To verify if this is the case, you can still access the legacy settings page by directly visiting its URL, which will be in the format https://circleci.com/<gh|bb>/<org name>/<project name>/edit#aws

For example, for the CircleCI-Public/circleci-demo-workflows GitHub project, the URL to directly access the legacy page would be: https://circleci.com/gh/CircleCI-Public/circleci-demo-workflows/edit#aws

We strongly recommend clearing any values found on this legacy page, so that they will not unexpectedly interfere with authenticating to AWS in your builds.

Note: The legacy settings page is subject to being completely taken offline in the future, when the steps in this article are no longer applicable.
