ABOUT: AWS AdministratorAccess Policy Requirements

  • 1.  ABOUT: AWS AdministratorAccess Policy Requirements

    The online documentation states that the AWS IAM User (necessary to setup a third-party integration with AWS) requires the following Policies assigned:

    AdministratorAccess
    AmazonEC2ReadOnlyAccess
    AmazonS3FullAccess

    The justification for the last two is well documented in the documentation.

    However it is unclear why the AdministratorAcces Policy would be required?

    Why, exactly, does PAM need Administrator Access privileges in AWS? 
    Thanks in advance
