Identity and Access Management in Amazon Snowball

Every Amazon Snowball job must be authenticated. You do this by creating and managing the IAM users in your account. Using IAM, you can create and manage users and permissions in Amazon.

Amazon Snowball users must have certain IAM-related permissions to access the Amazon Snowball Amazon Web Services Management Console to create jobs. An IAM user that creates an import or export job must also have access to the right Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) resources, such as the Amazon S3 buckets to be used for the job, Amazon KMS resources, Amazon SNS topic, and Amazon EC2-compatible AMI for edge compute jobs.
