Custom IAM Policy Doc for CloudMGR read-only mode


This IAM policy gives CloudMGR read-only access to EC2 resources and S3 billing bucket, allowing you to view your infrastructure and AWS billing data inside CloudMGR.

Under this read-only policy, CloudMGR will not have permission to apply any actions to your infrastructure and therefore you will not be able to use any of CloudMGR's infrastructure related functionality including:

  • Managing servers
  • Managing Tags
  • Using Schedules
  • Global Volume and Snapshot Management 
  • Changing Reserved Instance Configuration 

To access this functionality you will need to create a new IAM user with Power User configuration as per this support article.
