Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video IAM roles, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting PaaS Products.
- [Instructor] When building out complex applications,…sometimes it's necessary to create some level of…service account or some other alternate personality,…where you can actually perform actions that your…normal user account is really not normally entitled to do.…That's where the IAM Roles come into play.…So IAM Roles they are similar to the concept of a user…and it's an identity,…but it's not a permanent set of credentials.…
So think of it more as something that you could attain…or you can assume the identity of this,…but you still logged in as yourself.…The goal of this is to give you the ability…to temporarily elevate your permissions or for that matter,…anybody, so you can allow somebody…to assume a particular role,…it would grant them elevated permissions.…Now maybe they can go in and access different things like…an S3 bucket that they couldn't ordinarily do.…Another example of this would be things like…allowing an external person such as maybe a contractor.…
Maybe they're doing an audit of your system…
