Controlling Access

a Amazon Service Catalog portfolio gives your administrators a level of access control for your groups of end users. When you add users to a portfolio, they can browse and launch any of the products in the portfolio. For more information, see Managing Portfolios.


Constraints control which rules are applied to your end users when launching a product from a specific portfolio. You use them to apply limits to products for governance or cost control. For more information about constraints, see Using Amazon Service Catalog Constraints.

Amazon Service Catalog launch constraints give you more control over permissions needed by an end user. When your administrator creates a launch constraint for a product in a portfolio, the launch constraint associates a role ARN that is used when your end users launch the product from that portfolio. Using this pattern, you can control access to Amazon resource creation. For more information, see Amazon Service Catalog Launch Constraints.
