In this article, you will see everything about how to give aws lambda access to IAM user so that the AWS IAM user can perform operations on top of the AWS Lambda function. Throughout this article, we will give full access to AWS lambda to an IAM user so that the user can perform any type of operation of lambda.
To assign a lambda policy to an IAM user in AWS, you should have an AWS account and an IAM user. When you create an AWS account for the first time then that account becomes a root user account and using the root user account you can create many IAM users.
You can follow the given links to create an AWS account and IAM user:
Note:- However, you can perform all the operations using a root user account also but it’s not a good way. AWS always recommends, using IAM users and assigning policies to them as per requirement and then using them.
Note:- Root users always log in with email and password but IAM users log in with account id, username, and password.
Let’s see how can we give aws lambda access to the IAM user.
Give AWS Lambda Access to IAM User:
I am assuming, you have successfully created a root user account and an IAM user. Not let’s see how can we assign full lambda access to created IAM users.
- Click here to visit the sign-in page of the AWS management console.
- Enter the root user email.
- Enter password.
- Search for ‘iam‘ in the search box and click on IAM in the result.
- Click on users in the left panel. After clicking on users, all the users will be shown.
- Click on the username to which you want to give lambda access.
- Click on Add permissions from the drop-down.
- Choose Attach policies directly.
- Click on Add permissions button.
- Now, the AWSLambda_FullAccess policy has been assigned successfully to the IAM user which you created earlier, You can see in below image. Now, this IAM user can easily perform any operations on top of the AWS Lambda.
This is how you can use to assign policy to the IAM user.
So, In this article, we have seen how to give lambda access to IAM user with the help of the proper steps. If you have an IAM user and you want to perform lambda operations like creating a function, deleting a function, etc with that user, Then the IAM user must have access to AWS lambda because without lambda permission user cannot perform anything in lambda.
That’s why I thought, I should write an article where I can describe all the steps in order to assign full access to lambda to an IAM user.
