Manage AWS IAM Roles

You can manage the AWS IAM roles Atlas uses to access AWS services with the Atlas UI and API.

To navigate to the Atlas AWS IAM Role Access screen:

  1. Expand the Options menu next to your project name in the Atlas UI upper left corner. Select Integrations.
  2. Click the Configure button in the AWS IAM Role Access panel.

    Note: if you already have one or more roles configured, the button reads Edit.

You can perform the following actions from the Atlas AWS IAM Role Access screen:

  • View the list of authorized AWS IAM roles.

    The list of roles displays the role's ARN, its time of creation, and any Atlas services configured to use the role.

  • Authorize an AWS IAM role.

    Click the Authorize an AWS IAM Role button.


    If you have an authorization in progress, the associated role has a Resume button next to it.

    For detailed instructions, see Set Up Unified AWS Access.

  • Deauthorize an AWS IAM role.

    Click the Delete button next to the role.


    Be sure to remove any associated Atlas services from the IAM role before you deauthorize it.

  • View the details of an AWS IAM role.

    Click the ellipsis (...) icon next to the role and select View Role Details.
