Step 3. Specify IAM Identity

At the Account step of the wizard, specify an IAM role whose permissions Veeam Backup for AWS will use to perform the export operation. For more information on permissions required for the IAM role, see VPC Configuration Restore IAM Permissions.

To specify an IAM role for export, select the necessary IAM role from the list. For an IAM role to be displayed in the IAM Role list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for AWS as described in section Adding IAM Roles. If you have not added the necessary IAM role to Veeam Backup for AWS beforehand, you can do it without closing the VPC Restore wizard. To add an IAM role, click Add and complete the Add IAM Role wizard.


Consider the following:

  • Make sure that the specified IAM role belongs to an AWS account to which you plan to restore the VPC configuration items.
  • It is recommended that you check whether the selected IAM role has all the required permissions to perform the operation. If some permissions of the IAM role are missing, the export operation will fail to complete successfully. To run the IAM role permission check, click Check Permissions and follow the instructions provided in section Checking IAM Role Permissions.
