Audience - AWS CloudShell


How you use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) differs, depending on what you do in AWS CloudShell.

Service user - If you use the AWS CloudShell service to do your job, then your administrator provides you with the credentials and permissions that you need. As you use more AWS CloudShell features, you require more permissions. Understand how access is managed so you know how to request the right permissions from your administrator. If you can't access a feature in AWS CloudShell, see Troubleshooting AWS CloudShell for more information.

Service administrator - If you're in charge of AWS CloudShell resources at your company, you probably have full access to AWS CloudShell. It's your job to determine which AWS CloudShell features and resources your team access. You submit requests to your IAM administrator to change the permissions of your service users.
