AWS managed policies for AWS IoT SiteWise - AWS IoT SiteWise

AWS managed policies for AWS IoT SiteWise

When you add permissions to users, groups, and roles, you might find it easier to use AWS managed policies rather than to write policies yourself. It takes time and expertise to create IAM customer managed policies that provide your team with only the permissions they need. For a quicker start, you can use our 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 don't 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 with descriptions of job function policies, see AWS managed policies for job functions in the IAM User Guide.
