AWS Import/Export
Developer Guide

Using IAM with AWS Import/Export

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a service that enables Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers to manage users and user permissions in AWS. AWS Import/Export users must have certain permissions to access AWS Import/Export actions, such as CreateJob and GetStatus. An AWS account that creates an Amazon S3 import or export job must also own the buckets that will used for the import, export, or logging operations.


Only IAM users can create AWS Import/Export jobs. Assumed roles can't be used to create a job.
