AWS-Managed IAM Policies

To use AWS-managed IAM policies in Kion cloud rules and cloud access roles, you must import them. If AWS adds new AWS policies or makes changes to existing policies, you can follow these steps to update them.

To import the AWS-managed IAM Policies:

  1. Log in to Kion.
  2. Navigate to Settings > System Settings.
  3. Expand the AWS Settings section and select Import AWS Policies.
  4. Select AWS Managed IAM Policies.
  5. Click Import Policies.

This process may take a minute or two. Leaving the page will not prevent the policies from loading, and Kion will notify you when loading is complete.

Once the import completes, you will have access to the AWS library of pre-established IAM Policies.

Customer-Managed IAM Policies

You can also import customer-managed AWS IAM policies from your AWS console, allowing you to leverage your existing policies by using them in cloud rules and cloud access roles within Kion. We indicate in the description field when the policies were imported, making it easy to track which resources are up to date.

To import your customer-managed IAM policies:

  1. Navigate to Settings > System Settings.
  2. Expand the AWS Settings section and select Import AWS Policies.
  3. Select Customer Managed IAM Policies.
  4. Click Import Policies.
  5. Select the account to import the IAM policies from.
  6. (Optional) Enable the option to Replace Partition and Account IDs with Application Variables. This replaces any account IDs and partitions found within the IAM policy's text with application variables (i.e., {{CT::AWSAccountId}} and {{CT::AWSPartition}}). This ensures that policies that are account-specific or partition-specific in AWS can be applied across resources in Kion.
  7. Click Import.

This process may take a minute or two. Leaving the page will not prevent the policies from loading. Kion will notify you when the import is complete.
