AWS App Mesh IAM Policies, Roles, and Permissions

By default, IAM users don't have permission to create or modify AWS App Mesh resources or perform tasks using the App Mesh API. (This means that they also can't do so using the AWS CLI.) To allow IAM users to create or modify service meshes, you must create IAM policies that grant IAM users permissions to use the specific resources and API actions that they need, and then attach those policies to the IAM users or groups that require those permissions.

When you attach a policy to a user or group of users, it allows or denies the users permission to perform the specified tasks on the specified resources. For more information, see Permissions and Policies in the IAM User Guide. For more information about managing and creating custom IAM policies, see Managing IAM Policies.

Getting Started

An IAM policy must grant or deny permissions to use one or more App Mesh actions.
