Troubleshooting Amazon Macie identity and access

The following information can help you diagnose and fix common issues that you might encounter when working with Amazon Macie and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).

I'm not authorized to perform an action in Amazon Macie

If you receive an error that you're not authorized to perform an action, your policies must be updated to allow you to perform the action.

The following example error occurs when the mateojackson IAM user tries to use the console to view details about a fictional my-example-widget resource but doesn't have the fictional macie2:GetWidget permissions.

User: arn:aws:iam::123456789012:user/mateojackson is not authorized to perform: macie2:GetWidget on resource: my-example-widget

In this case, the policy for the mateojackson user must be updated to allow access to the my-example-widget resource by using the macie2:GetWidget action.

If you need help, contact your AWS administrator. Your administrator is the person who provided you with your sign-in credentials.

I want to allow people outside my AWS account to access my Amazon Macie resources

You can create a role that users in other accounts or people outside of your organization can use to access your resources. You can specify who is trusted to assume the role. For services that support resource-based policies or access control lists (ACLs), you can use those policies to grant people access to your resources.
