awsIAM6

Now you can click attach policy to grant the newly created user access to use the AWS Ec2 features. Remember when creating a key for yourself you should give yourself full access by selecting the policy AmazonEC2FullAccess. For other users such as outsourcers or members of your Browseo taskforce you should only grant them access to AmazonEC2ReadOnlyAccess or create a new account for them. This will prevent your aws account from being misused and you will also be able to monitor the ec2 access of the IAM user and shut the user down if you need to without it affecting anyone else

To attach the policy click Attach Policy in the new window that was created after clicking the new user’s nameawsIAM7

Type ec2 into the filter box and select the policy you would like to grant the user.
