When performing data protection and disaster recovery operations, you specify an IAM role or an IAM user. Veeam Backup for AWS uses permissions of IAM roles and IAM users to access AWS services and resources. You can assign granular permissions to IAM roles and IAM users to protect and restore resources within the AWS account where the backup appliance resides or in another AWS account.
To learn how to create IAM roles and assign them the required permissions, see Appendix B. Creating IAM Roles.
