IAM Role Manual Setup

To set up an IAM role, consider using the CloudFormation script that greatly simplifies creation of the role. However, if you prefer to create the role manually, you can do so.

  • You must have administrator access to both Virtana Platform and to AWS.

  • Be sure you have enabled Cost Explorer.



If you already have an existing IAM role for Virtana Platform but it does not include in-line policies for Cost Explorer or Cost and Usage Reports, you only need to add the policies to the IAM role.
