Today, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) made it easier for you to create and modify your IAM policies by using a point-and-click visual editor. You can now use the new visual editor to create and modify your AWS IAM policies in the IAM console. The visual editor guides you through granting permissions using IAM policies without requiring you to author policies in JSON (although you can still author and edit policies in JSON, if you prefer). This update to the IAM console makes it easier to grant least privilege by listing all the supported resource types and request conditions for the AWS service actions you select. Policy summaries identify unrecognized services and actions and permissions errors when you import existing policies, and now you can use the visual editor to correct them. To start using the point-and-click visual editor, navigate to the IAM console.
AWS IAM is available in all AWS Regions.
