Setting up IAM permissions - AWS Elemental MediaPackage

Setting up IAM permissions

By default, users and roles don't have permission to create or modify MediaPackage resources. They also can't perform tasks by using the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or AWS API. To grant users permission to perform actions on the resources that they need, an IAM administrator can create IAM policies. The administrator can then add the IAM policies to roles, and users can assume the roles.
