AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) enables you to manage access to AWS services and resources securely. Using IAM, you can create and manage AWS users and groups, and use permissions to allow and deny their access to AWS resources.
Buurst recommends use of an Identity and Access Management (IAM) when creating your SoftNAS instance. You will need to create both an IAM Policy and IAM Role for use with your SoftNAS instance.
Creating the IAM Policy for SoftNAS®
To create an IAM Policy for use with SoftNAS you will need to use the AWS IAM Console here, or search for IAM in the AWS services from the AWS Console home.
1. To create the custom policy, navigate to the Identity and Access Management (IAM) page and click Policies from within the navigation pane.
Select Create Policy.
On the Create Policy screen, click the JSON option.
Delete the text in the JSON Editor.
Copy the JSON text shown under IAM Role Policy below, and paste it into the AWS JSON editor.

You can copy and paste the content on the right and use it as the IAM Role Policy being created.
