AWS IAM policies

A policy in AWS IAM declares a set of permissions on a specific AWS resource. After creating a policy, you need to attach it to an IAM role or user. As such, the IAM role or user is assigned the permissions declared in the policy to access the specified AWS resource.

Different operations in StarRocks require you to have access permissions on different AWS resources, and therefore you need to configure different policies.

This topic provides the IAM policies that you need to configure for StarRocks to integrate with different AWS resources in various business scenarios when you choose the instance profile, assumed role, or IAM user-based authentication method.
