IAM Permissions

To perform data protection and disaster recovery operations, you must specify IAM roles and one-time access keys of IAM users whose permissions Veeam Backup for AWS will use to access AWS services and resources.

When you deploy Veeam Backup for AWS, the Default Backup Restore IAM role is automatically created and added to the backup appliance. This IAM role is assigned all permissions required to perform operations in the same AWS account where the backup appliance resides. However, you can create additional IAM roles to perform operations in this or in other AWS accounts. To learn how to create IAM roles in the AWS Management Console, see Appendix A. Creating IAM Roles in AWS.

For more information on IAM roles in Veeam Backup for AWS, see Managing IAM Roles.
