Using CodeWhisperer with AWS Cloud9

AWS Identity and Access Management permissions for AWS Cloud9

For CodeWhisperer to provide recommendations in AWS Cloud9 console, you must enable the correct IAM permissions for either your IAM user or role. You must add the codewhisperer:GenerateRecommendations permission, as outlined in the sample IAM policy below:

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Sid": "CodeWhispererPermissions", "Effect": "Allow", "Action": ["codewhisperer:GenerateRecommendations"], "Resource": "*" } ] }

It is best practice to use IAM policies to grant restrictive permissions to IAM principals. For details about working with IAM for AWS Cloud9, see Identity and access management in AWS Cloud9 in the AWS Cloud9 user guide.
