Minimum Amazon S3 Policy for Private Subnet

For private subnets, at a minimum you must provide the ability for Amazon EMR to access Amazon Linux repositories and Amazon EMR service support log buckets. The following policy provides these permissions. Replace MyRegion with the region where your log buckets reside, for example us-east-1:

{ "Version": "2008-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Sid": "AmazonLinuxAMIRepositoryAccess", "Effect": "Allow", "Principal": "*", "Action": "s3:GetObject", "Resource": [ "arn:aws:s3:::packages.**", "arn:aws:s3:::repo.**" ] }, { "Sid": "AccessToEMRLogBucketsForSupport", "Effect": "Allow", "Principal": "*", "Action": [ "s3:Put*", "s3:Get*", "s3:Create*", "s3:Abort*", "s3:List*" ], "Resource": [ "arn:aws:s3:::aws157-logs-prod-MyRegion/*", "arn:aws:s3:::aws157-logs-prod/*" ] } ] }
