Managed Policies for Amazon IVS - Amazon Interactive Video Service

Managed Policies for Amazon IVS

An AWS managed policy is a standalone policy that is created and administered by AWS. AWS managed policies are designed to provide permissions for many common use cases so that you can start assigning permissions to users, groups, and roles.

Keep in mind that AWS managed policies might not grant least-privilege permissions for your specific use cases because they're available for all AWS customers to use. We recommend that you reduce permissions further by defining customer managed policies that are specific to your use cases.

You cannot change the permissions defined in AWS managed policies. If AWS updates the permissions defined in an AWS managed policy, the update affects all principal identities (users, groups, and roles) that the policy is attached to. AWS is most likely to update an AWS managed policy when a new AWS service is launched or new API operations become available for existing services.

For more information, see AWS managed policies in the IAM User Guide.

IVSReadOnlyAccess

Use the IVSReadOnlyAccess AWS managed policy to give your application developers access to all non-mutating IVS API endpoints (for both low-latency and real-time streaming).

IVSFullAccess

Use the IVSFullAccess AWS managed policy to give your users access to all IVS and IVS Chat API endpoints (for both low-latency and real-time streaming). This policy includes additional permissions for dependent services, to allow full access to the IVS console.
