Granting permissions to IAM users

You can grant AWS permissions to Cloud Manager by specifying AWS access keys for IAM users when you create Cloud Manager user accounts. Before you create the Cloud Manager user accounts, you must grant the required permissions to those IAM users by using the Cloud Manager IAM policy.

About this task

If you create a Cloud Manager user and enter access keys for an AWS root account user, then that user already has the required permissions.

Steps

  1. Download the Cloud Manager IAM policy from the following location:
  2. From the IAM console, create your own policy by copying and pasting the text from the Cloud Manager IAM policy.
  3. Attach the policy to IAM users or groups.

Result

IAM users now have the required permissions. When you create Cloud Manager user accounts, you must specify the AWS access keys for those IAM users.
