Edit Package Permissions (Console)

After you have added a package to AWS Systems Manager Distributor, you can edit the package's permissions in the AWS Systems Manager console. You can add other AWS accounts to a package's permissions. By default, packages are set to Private, meaning only those with access to the package creator's AWS account can view package information and update or delete the package. If Private permissions are acceptable, you can skip this procedure.
