Set up permissions

To create, update, or delete a Change Calendar entry, including adding and removing events from the entry, a policy attached to your AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user or service role must allow the following actions.

  • ssm:CreateDocument

  • ssm:DescribeDocument

  • ssm:UpdateDocument

  • ssm:DeleteDocument

To get information about the current or upcoming state of the calendar, a policy attached to your AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user or service role must allow the following action.

  • ssm:GetCalendarState

If your IAM user account, group, or role is assigned administrator permissions, then you have access to Change Calendar. If you don't have administrator permissions, then an administrator must give you permission by assigning the AmazonSSMFullAccess managed policy, or a policy that provides comparable permissions, to your IAM account, group, or role.

Change Calendar entries that are owned by (that is, created by) accounts other than yours are read-only, even if they are shared with your account.
