AWS - Create a Role
Create a basic role to provide EC2 service with Full IAM access permissions.
In the end, run from the CLI (or CloudShell) the command to verify the role was created.
- Go to AWS console -> IAM
- Click in the left side menu on “Access Manamgement” -> Roles
- Click on “Create role”
- Choose “AWS service” as the type of trusted entity and then choose “EC2” as a use case. Click on “Next”
- In permissions page, check “IAMFullAccess” and click on “Next” until you get to “Review” page
- In the “Review” page, give the role a name (e.g. IAMFullAcessEC2), provide a short description and click on “Create role”
aws iam list-roles will list all the roles in the account, including the one we’ve just created.
