Specifying Settings for IAM Role from Another Account

[This step applies only if you have selected the IAM role from another account option]

At the Type step of the wizard, specify the following settings:

  1. In the Account ID field, enter the 12-digit number of the AWS account to which the IAM role you want to add belongs.
  1. In the AWS role name field, enter the IAM role name as specified in AWS.
  1. [Optional] In the External ID field, enter the external ID — the property in the trust policy of the IAM role from another account used for enhanced security. For more information, see AWS Documentation.


To allow the backup appliance to assume the IAM role, you must configure trust relationships for the role as described in section Before You Begin.
