Actions, Resources, and Condition Keys for AWS Database Migration Service

AWS Database Migration Service (service prefix: dms) provides the following service-specific resources, actions, and condition context keys for use in IAM permission policies.

Actions Defined by AWS Database Migration Service

You can specify the following actions in the Action element of an IAM policy statement. By using policies, you define the permissions for anyone performing an operation in AWS. When you use an action in a policy, you usually allow or deny access to the API operation or CLI command with the same name. However, in some cases, a single action controls access to more than one operation. Alternatively, some operations require several different actions. For details about the columns in the following table, see The Actions Table.
