AWS Snowball API Permissions: Actions, Resources, and Conditions Reference

When you are setting up Access Control in the AWS Cloud and writing a permissions policy that you can attach to an IAM identity (identity-based policies), you can use the following table as a reference. The table following each AWS Snowball job management API operation and the corresponding actions for which you can grant permissions to perform the action. It also includes for each API operation the AWS resource for which you can grant the permissions. You specify the actions in the policy's Action field, and you specify the resource value in the policy's Resource field.

You can use AWS-wide condition keys in your AWS Snowball policies to express conditions. For a complete list of AWS-wide keys, see Available Keys in the IAM User Guide.

Note

To specify an action, use the snowball: prefix followed by the API operation name (for example, snowball:CreateJob).

If you see an expand arrow () in the upper-right corner of the table, you can open the table in a new window. To close the window, choose the close button (X) in the lower-right corner.
