How AWS Lambda Works with IAM

Before you use IAM to manage access to Lambda, you should understand what IAM features are available to use with Lambda. To get a high-level view of how Lambda and other AWS services work with IAM, see AWS Services That Work with IAM in the IAM User Guide.

For an overview of permissions, policies, and roles as they are used by Lambda, see AWS Lambda Permissions.
