Identity and access management in AWS Backup - AWS Backup

Identity and access management in AWS Backup

Access to AWS Backup requires credentials. Those credentials must have permissions to access AWS resources, such as an Amazon DynamoDB database or an Amazon EBS volume. The following sections provide details on how you can use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) and AWS Backup to help secure access to your resources.

Warning

If you delete IAM credentials used by AWS Backup, it cannot manage your backups. This is true even if you later create new IAM credentials with the same permissions.
