AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Using Elastic Beanstalk with AWS Identity and Access Management

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) helps you securely control access to your AWS resources. This section includes reference materials for working with IAM policies, instance profiles, and service roles.

For an overview of permissions, see Service Roles, Instance Profiles, and User Policies. For most environments, the service role and instance profile that the AWS Management Console prompts you to create when you launch your first environment have all of the permissions that you need. Likewise, the managed policies provided by Elastic Beanstalk for full access and read-only access contain all of the user permissions required for daily use.

The IAM User Guide provides in-depth coverage of AWS permissions.
