AWS managed policies for Amazon Connect - Amazon Connect

AWS managed policies for Amazon Connect

To add permissions to users, groups, and roles, it is more efficient to use AWS managed policies than to write policies yourself. It takes time and expertise to create IAM customer managed policies that provide your team with only the permissions that they need. To get started quickly, you can use AWS managed policies. These policies cover common use cases and are available in your AWS account. For more information about AWS managed policies, see AWS managed policies in the IAM User Guide.

AWS services maintain and update AWS managed policies. You can't change the permissions in AWS managed policies. Services occasionally add additional permissions to an AWS managed policy to support new features. This type of update affects all identities (users, groups, and roles) where the policy is attached. Services are most likely to update an AWS managed policy when a new feature is launched or when new operations become available. Services do not remove permissions from an AWS managed policy, so policy updates won't break your existing permissions.

Additionally, AWS supports managed policies for job functions that span multiple services. For example, the ReadOnlyAccess AWS managed policy provides read-only access to all AWS services and resources. When a service launches a new feature, AWS adds read-only permissions for new operations and resources. For a list and descriptions of job function policies, see AWS managed policies for job functions in the IAM User Guide.

AWS managed policy: AmazonConnect_FullAccess

To allow full read/write access to Amazon Connect, you must attach two policies to your IAM users, groups, or roles. Attach the AmazonConnect_FullAccess policy and a custom policy with the following contents:

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Sid": "AttachAnyPolicyToAmazonConnectRole", "Effect": "Allow", "Action": "iam:PutRolePolicy", "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::*:role/aws-service-role/connect.amazonaws.com/AWSServiceRoleForAmazonConnect*" } ] }

To allow an IAM user to create an instance, ensure that they have the permissions granted by the AmazonConnect_FullAccess policy.

When you use AmazonConnect_FullAccess policy, note the following:

  • The iam:PutRolePolicy allows the user who gets that policy to configure any resource in the account to work with the Amazon Connect instance. Because it grants such broad permissions, only assign it when necessary. Instead, create the service-linked role with access to the necessary resources and let the user have access to pass the service-linked role to Amazon Connect (which is granted by the AmazonConnect_FullAccess policy).

  • Additional privileges are required to create a Amazon S3 bucket with a name of your choosing, or use an existing bucket while creating or updating an instance from the Amazon Connect console. If you choose default storage locations for your call recordings, chat transcripts, call transcripts, etc, they are now prefixed with "amazon-connect-".

  • The aws/connect KMS key is available to use as a default encryption option. To use a custom encryption key, assign users additional KMS privileges.

  • Assign users additional privileges to attach other AWS resources like Amazon Polly, Live Media Streaming, Data Streaming, and Lex bots to their Amazon Connect instances.

For more information and detailed permissions, see Required permissions for using custom IAM policies to manage access to the Amazon Connect console.

AWS managed policy: AmazonConnectReadOnlyAccess

To allow read-only access, you need to attach only the AmazonConnectReadOnlyAccess policy.

AWS managed policy: AmazonConnectVoiceIDFullAccess

To allow full access to Amazon Connect Voice ID, you must attach two policies to your IAM users, groups, or roles. Attach the AmazonConnectVoiceIDFullAccess policy and the following custom policy contents to access Voice ID through the Amazon Connect console:

{ "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Sid": "AttachAnyPolicyToAmazonConnectRole", "Effect": "Allow", "Action": "iam:PutRolePolicy", "Resource": "arn:aws:iam::*:role/aws-service-role/connect.amazonaws.com/AWSServiceRoleForAmazonConnect*" }, { "Effect": "Allow", "Action": [ "connect:CreateIntegrationAssociation", "connect:DeleteIntegrationAssociation", "connect:ListIntegrationAssociations" ], "Resource": "*" }, { "Effect": "Allow", "Action": [ "events:DeleteRule", "events:PutRule", "events:PutTargets", "events:RemoveTargets" ], "Resource": "*", "Condition": { "StringEquals": { "events:ManagedBy": "connect.amazonaws.com" } } } ] }

The manual policy configures the following:

  • The iam:PutRolePolicy allows the user who gets that policy to configure any resource in the account to work with the Amazon Connect instance. Because it grants such broad permissions, only assign it when necessary.

  • To attach a Voice ID domain with an Amazon Connect instance, you need additional Amazon Connect and Amazon EventBridge privileges. You need privileges to call Amazon Connect APIs to create, delete, and list integration associations. You need EventBridge permissions to create and delete EventBridge rules which are used to provide contact records related to Voice ID.

Since there is no default encryption option, to use your customer managed key with your Amazon Connect Voice ID, the following API operations must be permitted in the key policy. Also, you must add these permissions on the relevant key. They are not included in the managed policy.

  • kms:Decrypt to access or store encrypted data.

  • kms:CreateGrant – when creating or updating a domain, used to create a grant to the customer managed key for the Voice ID domain. The grant controls access to the specified KMS key which allows access to grant operations Amazon Connect Voice ID requires. For more information about using grants, see Using grants in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.

  • kms:DescribeKey – when creating or updating a domain, allows determining the ARN for KMS key you provided.

For more about creating domains and KMS keys, see Enable Voice ID and Encryption at rest.
