AWS IAM Policy
IAM Policies are JSON documents used to describe permissions within AWS. Using the IAM policy you can grant users, groups, and roles permissions to AWS services and resources. For more information about IAM Policy, see AWS Identity and Access Management.
Exasol provides you with a JSON policy that you can use to deploy Exasol on AWS without requiring full admin rights for your user account. You can either download this JSON policy or copy the content and paste it in the JSON editor in AWS. For detailed instructions on how to add this policy, see below.
Steps to Add IAM Policy

- In the AWS Management Console, under Security, Identity, & Compliance, click IAM or just search IAM in the Find Services search bar at the top.
- In the navigation pane on the left, under Access Management, click Policies.
- Next, click Create policy and then click the JSON tab.
- In the JSON editor, type or paste the JSON policy. You can access the JSON policy provided by Exasol here.
