AWS Panorama permissions - AWS Panorama

AWS Panorama permissions

You can use AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to manage access to the AWS Panorama service and resources like appliances and applications. For users in your account that use AWS Panorama, you manage permissions in a permissions policy that you can apply to IAM users, groups, or roles. To manage permissions for an application, you create a role and assign it to the application.

To manage permissions for users in your account, use the managed policy that AWS Panorama provides, or write your own. You need permissions to other AWS services to get application and appliance logs, view metrics, and assign a role to an application.

An AWS Panorama Appliance also has a role that grants it permission to access AWS services and resources. The appliance's role is one of the service roles that the AWS Panorama service uses to access other services on your behalf.

An application role is a separate service role that you create for an application, to grant it permission to use AWS services with the AWS SDK for Python (Boto). To create an application role, you need administrative privileges or the help of an administrator.

You can restrict user permissions by the resource an action affects and, in some cases, by additional conditions. For example, you can specify a pattern for the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of an application that requires a user to include their user name in the name of applications that they create. For the resources and conditions that are supported by each action, see Actions, resources, and condition keys for AWS Panorama in the Service Authorization Reference.
