Creating a private marketplace administrator - AWS Marketplace

Creating a private marketplace administrator

You can create an administrators group to manage your company’s private marketplace settings. After the first private marketplace experience is created for your organization, administrators for the private marketplace can perform many tasks including the following:

  • View and create experiences and account groups.

  • Add products to private marketplace experiences.

  • Remove products from private marketplace experiences.

  • Configure the user interface of private marketplace experiences.

  • Enable and disable private marketplace experiences.

  • Call the AWS Marketplace Catalog API to manage private marketplace experiences programmatically.

To create multiple private marketplace administrators where each administrator is limited to a subset of tasks, see Creating custom policies for private marketplace administrators.


Creating the first private marketplace experience also enables private marketplaces in your organization. This is a one-time action. For accounts that are part of an organization, the initial experience creation must happen from the management account. For more information, see Creating a private marketplace experience.

You grant AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions to administer your private marketplace by attaching the AWS managed policy: AWSPrivateMarketplaceAdminFullAccess to an IAM user, group, or role. We recommend using a group or role. For more information about how to attach the policy, see Attaching a policy to an IAM user group in the IAM User Guide.

For more information about the permissions in the AWSPrivateMarketplaceAdminFullAccess policy, see AWS managed policy: AWSPrivateMarketplaceAdminFullAccess. To learn about other policies for use in AWS Marketplace, sign in to the AWS Management Console, and go to the IAM policies page. In the search box, enter Marketplace to find all of the policies that are associated with AWS Marketplace.
