create-default-role

Description

Creates the default IAM role AWSDataLifecycleManagerDefaultRole which will be used by Lifecycle service. If the role does not exist, create-default-role will automatically create it and set its policy. If the role has been already created, create-default-role will not update its policy.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-default-role
[--iam-endpoint <value>]

Options

--iam-endpoint (string)

The IAM endpoint to call for creating the roles. This is optional and should only be specified when a custom endpoint should be called for IAM operations.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To create the required IAM role for Amazon DLM

Amazon DLM creates the AWSDataLifecycleManagerDefaultRole role the first time that you create a lifecycle policy using the AWS Management Console. If you are not using the console, you can use the following command to create this role.

aws dlm create-default-role
