NewConnecting AWS volumes using IAM roles through the visual interface
Connection of Amazon Web Services S3 buckets with the Seven Bridges Platform using IAM roles is now also available through the connection wizard in the visual interface. The new connection option that uses IAM roles provides improved security for connecting cloud storage to the Platform and greater flexibility by allowing you to choose between the IAM user or IAM role connection method. For both IAM role and IAM user, as an AWS identity, you can set permission policies to define what another identity associated with them can and cannot do on your bucket. In addition to that, an IAM role provides temporary security credentials which the Platform automatically renews when the user’s bucket is accessed through the Platform, thus increasing the security of the established connection.
