Step 2: Create Policies - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Step 2: Create Policies

Any person who is an administrator can create a policy.

In Step 1: Determine the Access Requirements, someone in your organization identified the policy or policies that you need to create.

Create those policies now in IAM.

To create a custom policy for the MediaLive trusted entity role

  1. If necessary, sign in to the AWS Management Console as a full-access administrator, and open the IAM console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Policies, and then choose Create policy. On the Create policy page, choose the Visual editor tab. This tab is a policy generator that lets you build a policy by selecting actions from a list to add them to the policy.

    To create the policy, follow the prompts on the console. Here are some tips for creating the policy:

    • You can create one policy that covers several services. You don't need to create a policy for each separate service. To create a policy for several services, choose the actions for one service, and then choose Add additional permissions at the bottom of the page to set up another service. (You might need to move both of the vertical scroll bars to the bottom to find Add additional permissions.)

    • You can choose the Import managed policy button to import an existing policy into this policy. The policy actions are copied over (the policy is not copied by reference), so after importing you can add and remove actions if you want.

    For full instructions on creating a custom policy, see the IAM User Guide.
