How Amazon Chime works with IAM

Before you use IAM to manage access to Amazon Chime, you should understand what IAM features are available to use with Amazon Chime. To get a high-level view of how Amazon Chime and other AWS services work with IAM, see AWS services that work with IAM in the IAM User Guide.

Amazon Chime identity-based policies

With IAM identity-based policies, you can specify allowed or denied actions and resources as well as the conditions under which actions are allowed or denied. Amazon Chime supports specific actions, resources, and condition keys. To learn about all of the elements that you use in a JSON policy, see IAM JSON policy elements reference in the IAM User Guide.

Actions

Administrators can use AWS JSON policies to specify who has access to what. That is, which principal can perform actions on what resources, and under what conditions.

The Action element of a JSON policy describes the actions that you can use to allow or deny access in a policy. Policy actions usually have the same name as the associated AWS API operation. There are some exceptions, such as permission-only actions that don't have a matching API operation. There are also some operations that require multiple actions in a policy. These additional actions are called dependent actions.

Include actions in a policy to grant permissions to perform the associated operation.

Condition keys

Amazon Chime does not provide any service-specific condition keys. To see all AWS global condition keys, see AWS Global Condition Context Keys in the IAM User Guide.

Resources

Amazon Chime does not support specifying resource ARNs in a policy.
