AWS Elemental MediaPackage
User Guide

Step 1: Create a Policy

The IAM policy defines the permissions that AWS Elemental MediaPackage requires to access Amazon S3. Create a policy that allows MediaPackage to read from the Amazon S3 bucket, verify the billing method, and retrieve content. For the billing method, MediaPackage must verify that the bucket does not require the requester to pay for requests. If the bucket has requestPayment enabled, MediaPackage can't ingest content from that bucket.

To use the JSON policy editor to create a policy

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the IAM console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/.

  2. In the navigation column on the left, choose Policies.

    If this is your first time choosing Policies, the Welcome to Managed Policies page appears. Choose Get Started.

  3. At the top of the page, choose Create policy.

  4. Choose the JSON tab.

  5. Enter the following JSON policy document:

    { "Version": "2012-10-17", "Statement": [ { "Action": [ "s3:GetObject", "s3:GetBucketLocation", "s3:GetBucketRequestPayment" ], "Resource": [ "arn:aws:s3:::{bucket_name}/*", "arn:aws:s3:::{bucket_name}" ], "Effect": "Allow" } ] }
  6. Choose Review policy.

    Note

    You can switch between the Visual editor and JSON tabs any time. However, if you make changes or choose Review policy in the Visual editor tab, IAM might restructure your policy to optimize it for the visual editor. For more information, see Policy Restructuring in the IAM User Guide.

  7. On the Review policy page, enter a Name and an optional Description for the policy that you are creating. Review the policy Summary to see the permissions that are granted by your policy. Then choose Create policy to save your work.
