Amazon S3 Storage Lens permissions

Amazon S3 Storage Lens requires new permissions in Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) to authorize access to S3 Storage Lens actions. You can attach the policy to IAM users, groups, or roles to grant them permissions to enable or disable S3 Storage Lens, or to access any S3 Storage Lens dashboard or configuration.

The IAM user or role must belong to the account that created or owns the dashboard or configuration, unless your account is a member of Amazon Organizations, and you were given access to create organization-level dashboards by your management account as a delegated administrator.

Note
  • You can't use your account's root user credentials to view Amazon S3 Storage Lens dashboards. To access S3 Storage Lens dashboards, you must grant the required IAM permissions to a new or existing IAM user. Then, sign in with those user credentials to access S3 Storage Lens dashboards. For more information, see Amazon Identity and Access Management best practices.

  • Using S3 Storage Lens on the Amazon S3 console can require multiple permissions. For example, to edit a dashboard on the console, you need the following permissions:

    • s3:ListStorageLensConfigurations

    • s3:GetStorageLensConfiguration

    • s3:PutStorageLensConfiguration

Note
  • You can use resource tags in an IAM policy to manage permissions.

  • An IAM user or role with these permissions can see metrics from buckets and prefixes that they might not have direct permission to read or list objects from.

  • For S3 Storage Lens dashboard configurations with advanced metrics and recommendations aggregated at the prefix-level, if the selected prefix matches an object key, the dashboard might show the object key as your prefix up to the delimiter and maximum depth selected.

  • For metrics exports, which are stored in a bucket in your account, permissions are granted by using the existing s3:GetObject permission in the IAM policy. Similarly, for an Amazon Organizations entity, the organization's management account or delegated administrator accounts can use IAM policies to manage access permissions for organization-level dashboard and configurations.
