AWS-Managed IAM Policies

To use AWS-managed IAM policies in cloudtamer.io cloud rules and cloud access roles, you must import them. If AWS adds new AWS policies or makes changes to existing policies, you can follow these steps to update them.

To import the AWS-managed IAM Policies:

  1. Click Settings > System Settings > AWS Settings in the left navigation menu.
  2. Click the Import AWS Policies tab.
  3. Select AWS Managed IAM Policies from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click the Import Policies button.

This process may take a minute or two. Leaving the page will not prevent the policies from loading, and cloudtamer.io will notify you when loading is complete.

Customer-Managed IAM Policies

 Version 2.28.0 and higher: You can also import customer-managed AWS IAM policies from your AWS console, allowing you to leverage your existing policies by using them in cloud rules and cloud access roles within cloudtamer.io. We indicate in the description field when the policies were imported, making it easy to track which resources are up to date.

To import your customer-managed IAM policies:

  1. Click Settings > System Settings > AWS Settings in the left navigation menu.
  2. Click the Import AWS Policies tab.
  3. Select Customer Managed IAM Policies from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click the Import Policies button.
  5. In the pop-up modal, select the account from which you wish to import IAM policies. You can also place a check next to Replace Partition and Account IDs with Application Variables to replace any account IDs and partitions found within the IAM policy's text to application variables (i.e., {{CT::AWSAccountId}} and {{CT::AWSPartition}}). This ensures that policies that are account-specific or partition-specific in AWS can be applied across resources in cloudtamer.io.
  6. Click Import.

This process may take a minute or two. Leaving the page will not prevent the policies from loading, and cloudtamer.io will notify you when loading is complete.
