AWS Batch now supports enhanced Identity and Access Management (IAM)-based fine-grained access controls. IAM-based controls enable administrators to match Portable Operating System Interface (POSIX) controls with their IAM users in AWS Batch. In addition to POSIX support, administrators can write IAM policies that control access to Job Definitions and Job Queues when submitting Jobs to AWS Batch.

AWS IAM enables you to manage access to AWS services and resources securely. Administrators can restrict or grant usage on a Batch resource basis, and can associate IAM users to POSIX usernames in order to assign on-host resources, giving them control over which users can access specific compute resources and data. Users can be prevented from modifying or accessing other users' data on the instance, allowing for more secure data processing.
